  • Patent number: 11860829
    Abstract: Methods for page split detection and affinity in query processing pushdowns are performed by systems and devices. Page servers perform pushdown operations based on specific, and specifically formatted or generated, information, instructions, and data provided thereto from a compute node. Page servers also determine that page splits have occurred during reading of data pages maintained by page servers during pushdown operations, and also during fulfillment of compute node data requests. To detect a data page has split, page servers utilize information from a compute node of an expected next data page which is compared to a next data page in the page server page index. A mismatch in the comparison by page servers indicates data page was split. Compute nodes and page servers store and maintain off-row data generated during data operations via page affinity considerations where the off-row data is stored at the same page server as the data.

  • Patent number: 11860951
    Abstract: A request to send a file is received. A file type for the file is identified. For example, the file type may a Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file or a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. In response to receiving the request to send the file and identifying the file type for the file, a format of the file is reordered. Reordering the format of the file is based on an application and/or an application type that will be receiving the file. For example, the application may be an Adobe Acrobat® reader that is receiving a PDF file that has been reordered for more efficient reading.

  • Patent number: 11861688
    Abstract: Bid values submitted for various keywords can take into account the recovery propensity between paid search and organic search. When submitting a bid to a search engine provider for a keyword, an entity may get a certain level of performance in return. If not submitting a bid, however, the entity will likely still get some level of performance, although likely less than for paid search. In order to optimize for a parameter such as impressions, purchases, or profit, the recovery propensity can be taken into account in order to adjust the bid price, taking into account the relative performance of paid and organic search and then optimizing for the determined goal. Organic search data in some embodiments can be obtained through testing or modeling, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 11860891
    Abstract: A centralized database management system performs data synchronization with lower bandwidth consumption and higher efficiency. The system manages data synchronization and data reconciliation across multiple databases managed by multiple DBMS across different client servers. The system generates and sends instructions that encode each data table into an invertible bloom filter and identifies differences between the two databases by performing a subtraction operation on the two invertible bloom filters. The system may generate a third invertible bloom filter comprising information associated with differences between the two data tables. The system may send instructions to the source and the destination databases, where a first and a second invertible bloom filters are encoded for the source and the destination databases, respectively. The system may decode the third invertible bloom filter, identify the different elements, and generate instructions to the source and/or the destination database.

  • Patent number: 11860847
    Abstract: A seed value assigned to a database table is determined. Numerically ordered invocation numbers are determined. Unordered pseudorandom numbers are generated based on the seed value and the invocation numbers to index temporally ordered data changes to the database table. It is determined whether the total number of yet-to-be-saved pseudorandom numbers reaches a maximum total number threshold. If so, the yet-to-be-saved pseudorandom numbers and a sequence of corresponding invocation numbers are saved in a sync table.

  • Patent number: 11853337
    Abstract: Text input data may be aggregated and mapped to create composite text input data for electronic records. A semantic event may be automatically detected, triggered by a semantic rule and associated semantic tag. The detected semantic event may be flagged, and a text mining result database may be updated by adding an entry to the database. An indication associated with the event may be transmitted, and a back-end application computer server may establish a hierarchy for multiple elements of the electronic records. The computer server may determine a weight variable and response variable for each element in the hierarchy and apply a hierarchical credibility weighting methodology to the elements from level 1, representing the least granular level in the hierarchy, to level n, representing the most granular level in the hierarchy, calculated recursively from level n, to determine a final estimated credibility for the electronic records.

  • Patent number: 11841830
    Abstract: A method to dynamically switch between catalog sharing protocols includes monitoring, over a period of time, access to a catalog used to index data sets. Using information gathered during this monitoring period, the method divides the period of time into intervals based on which of a plurality of sharing protocols, used to access the catalog, would provide the best performance during the respective interval. The method schedules the sharing protocols to operate during their respective intervals going forward, and switches between the sharing protocols in accordance with the schedule. In certain embodiments, switching between the sharing protocols includes temporarily operating in a hybrid mode in which multiple sharing protocols operate simultaneously. When using this hybrid mode, the switch may occur when one sharing protocol begins to perform better than the other. A corresponding system and computer program product are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11836369
    Abstract: A method includes encoding data in accordance with a width parameter to produce a first set of data slices. Storage of the first set of data slices is maintained in a set of storage units of a storage pool. An expanded set of storage units of the storage pool is determined based on an additional subset of storage units added to the storage pool. Storage of the first set of data slices is maintained in the set of storage units after addition of the additional subset of storage units added to the storage pool. An updated width parameter is determined by increasing the width parameter based on the expanded set of storage units. The data is encoded in accordance with the updated width parameter to produce a second set of data slices. Storage of the second set of data slices is maintained in the expanded set of storage units.
