    Abstract: Techniques for leveraging frequent patterns identified in a captured workload are provided. In one approach, multiple frequent patterns detected in a captured workload may be ordered by frequency to determine, for example, which patterns should be targeted for optimization. In another approach, a model of a captured workload is created, where the model comprises nodes that represent templates (which in turn correspond to requests) and edges that represent transitions between templates. The model is used to create an artificial workload, such as a workload that is twice as large as the originally-captured workload. The model may also be edited before creating the artificial workload. In another approach, workload models are compared to identify errors, regressions, or security issues. In another approach, an artificial workload is created for an application that is not yet deployed and then executed to determine whether the artificial workload or the originally-captured workload executed faster.

    Abstract: An interactive graphical user interface (GUI) to guide configuration of an application is disclosed. A GUI receives user input comprising dragging and dropping an icon representing a particular configurable option into a configuration region of the GUI. The drag-and-drop user input indicates a selection of the particular configurable option. The GUI receives, through one or more interface elements, user input configuring the particular configurable option. The user input provides a context for which additional configurable options are presented to the user. Based on the context, a configuration engine selects only a subset of configurable options that are associated with the particular configurable option for presentation to a user. A GUI displays icons representing the selected subset of configurable options, but not icons representing the non-selected subset of configurable options.

  • Publication number: 20190149949
    Abstract: An event processing system for distributing geospatial computations with geo-fences is disclosed. The system can partition and distribute geo-fences efficiently for parallel computation, and can track a potentially unlimited number of moving objects. A computing device determines a minimum bounding rectangle (MBR) covering a geographic area indexed by a geo-grid, and partitions the MBR and a set of geo-fences to a plurality of processing nodes. The computing device receives input events of a stream comprising locations within the geographic area. The device distributes the events to partitions on processing nodes, based at least on the events' locations. The device can determine a partition identifier corresponding to a respective location in constant time. The computing device then combines partition results to obtain a single geospatial computation result.

  • Patent number: 10289331
    Abstract: Systems and methods for use in enhancing and dynamically allocating random data bandwidth among requesting cores in multi-core processors to reduce system latencies and increase system performance. In one arrangement, a multicore processor includes a vertical pre-fetch random data buffer structure that stores random data being continuously generated by a random data generator (RNG) so that such random data is ready for consumption upon request from one or more of a plurality of processing cores of the multicore processor. Random data received at one data buffer from a higher level buffer may be automatically deposited into the lower level buffer if room exists in the lower level buffer. Requesting strands of a core may fetch random data directly from its corresponding first level pre-fetch buffer on demand rather than having to trigger a PIO access or the like to fetch random data from the RNG.

  • Patent number: 10291507
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing a virtual tap in a virtual topology are described. A request to tap a particular link between a set of virtual topology entities (VTEs) is received. The particular link between the set of VTEs is mapped to a link between a set of instantiated entities in a physical topology. One of the instantiated elements implements a tapping function. Additionally or alternatively, a tapping element is instantiated and the tapping element implements the tapping function. The tapping element is not one of the set of instantiated entities. The tapping function includes: applying a tap filter to a set of data; replicating the data that passes the tap filter; and transmitting the replicated data to a virtual endpoint. The replicated data may be referred to as “tapped data.” A user interface engine presents information regarding the particular link between the set of VTEs based on the tapped data.

After classifying the first set of instances, a second set of instances may remain unclassified or otherwise may not be associated with the particular class of seasonal pattern. Based on the first and second set of instances, a summary may be generated that identifies one or more stretches of time that are associated with the particular class of seasonal pattern. The one or more stretches of time may span at least one sub-period corresponding to at least one instance in the second set of instances.

  • Patent number: 10281746
    Abstract: An optical transmitter includes a reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) coupled to an input end of a first optical waveguide. An end of the first optical waveguide provides a transmitter output for the optical transmitter. Moreover, a section of the first optical waveguide between the input end and the output end is optically coupled to a ring modulator that modulates an optical signal based on an electrical input signal. A passive ring filter (or a 1×N silicon-photonic switch and a bank of band reflectors) is connected to provide a mirror that reflects light received from the second optical waveguide back toward the RSOA to form a lasing cavity. Moreover, the ring modulator and the passive ring filter have different sizes, which causes a Vernier effect that provides a large wavelength tuning range for the lasing cavity in response to tuning the ring modulator and the passive ring filter.

  • Patent number: 10282437
    Abstract: Techniques for creating and using partial indexes are provided. A partial index is an index that indexes one or more partitions of a partitioned table and does not index one or more other partitions of the partitioned table. Thus, if a partition of a partitioned table is rarely used, then an index may index all other partitions of the partitioned table or at least only those partitions that are written to or read from relatively frequently. Also, in preparation for loading data into a partition, indexing for the partition may be “turned off”, effectively making a full index a partial index. While the data is loaded into the partition, the partial index is still available for query processing. After the data is loaded into the partition, indexing for the partition is “turned on”, which causes the data in the partition to be indexed by the partial index.

  • Patent number: 10275226
    Abstract: Techniques herein process type variables to transform type parameters (TPs) of generic classes. In an embodiment, a computer stores a generic class attribute associated with a definition of a generic class. The generic class attribute includes a type variable declaration (TVD) for each TP. Each TVD is associated with usage entries (VUEs) within the definition. Each VUE indicates an actual type for use, within a portion of the definition, as the TP represented by the VUE. Based on how a particular portion of the definition uses a particular TP represented by a particular TVD of a particular VUE, the computer determines whether the particular VUE is to be assigned to a particular type or erased. In response to determining that the particular VUE is to be erased, the computer configures the particular VUE to indicate erasure. Otherwise, the computer assigns the particular type to the particular VUE.
