  • Patent number: 11507418
    Abstract: A processing system includes a service provider, such as a printing device, that receives requests to process tasks or jobs from service requesters. At times, the service provider will not be available for processing and will generate deferral responses to the service requesters. The deferral responses include a condition to be met before processing requests can be resent from the service requesters. After the condition is met, the processing requests are resent to the service provider to be fulfilled.

  • Patent number: 11487556
    Abstract: An adjunct processor dynamically determines, on a per-command basis, whether commands obtained by the adjunct processor are to be processed by the adjunct processor. The adjunct processor obtains a command request of a requester. The command request includes at least one filtering indicator indicating at least one valid command type for processing by the adjunct processor for the requester. The adjunct processor determines using the at least one filtering indicator whether a command of the command request is valid for processing by the adjunct processor for the requester. Based on determining that the command is valid for processing by the adjunct processor, the command is processed by the adjunct processor.

  • Patent number: 11474832
    Abstract: Techniques for determining a virtual machine configuration based on garbage collection characteristics are disclosed. GC characteristics associated with GC cycles executed on a memory allocated for execution of an application are obtained. A relationship between GC variables is determined based on the GC characteristics collected over a time period of interest. A target GC characteristic is input to the GC variable relationship to determine an expected GC characteristic. The target GC characteristic may be, for example, a target cumulative pause time per a time interval. A virtual machine configuration is determined based on the expected GC characteristic. The virtual machine configuration is applied to a virtual machine executing the application.

  • Patent number: 11416284
    Abstract: A method and activity continuation system for managing continuous execution of an activity during a user device switchover is disclosed. The method includes detecting a switchover from a first user device to a second user device, where one or more activities are being executed in the first user device during the switchover. On detecting the switchover, the method includes determining device data and user related data associated with the second user device and applications data associated with one or more activities operated at the first user device. Further, based on the device data, the user related data and the applications data, contextual information is generated for the one or more activities. Thereafter, the method includes managing continuous execution of the one or more activities in the second user device on switchover based on the contextual information. Thus, the present disclosure facilitates users in providing application session continuity while switching between user devices.

  • Patent number: 11385803
    Abstract: A method includes identifying, by a dispersed storage (DS) processing unit of a plurality of DS processing units of a dispersed storage network (DSN), a DSN operation to be performed that will adversely interfere with processing of DSN access requests. The method further includes sending, by the DS processing unit, a suspension request to a process balancing module of the DSN where the suspension request is for temporarily suspending processing of DSN access requests. The method further includes determining, by the process balancing module, whether sufficient processing resources of active DS processing units of the plurality of DS processing units are available for processing DSN access requests on behalf of the DS processing unit. When determined that sufficient processing resources are available, the method further includes granting the suspension request, and allocating DSN access requests of the DS processing unit to one ore of the active DS processing units.
