  • Patent number: 10891214
    Abstract: Providing debugging support for a carried thread are disclosed. A debug agent converts between identifiers of carried threads and carrier threads. Further, a debug agent transfers debug configurations amongst multiple carrier threads associated with a same carried thread. With respect to debug configuration transfers, an agent receives, from a debugger, a command to set an active debug configuration for a carrier thread on which a carried thread is mounted. Responsive to determining that the carried thread is unmounted, the agent stores the active debug configuration for the carrier thread as a recorded debug configuration associated with the carried thread. The agent transmits a command to reset the active debug configuration on the carrier thread. Responsive to determining that the carried thread is mounted on a carrier thread, the agent retrieves the recorded debug configuration. The agent restores the recorded debug configuration as an active debug configuration on the current carrier thread.

  • Patent number: 10891120
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a solution for optimizing a compiling of program code. A proposed state pointer, which corresponds to a current state pointer to a current state node that represents a section of the program code, is added in an intermediate language (IL) representation of the program code. When the optimizing compiler determines that an optimization should be made to a section of code, the current state node is copied to create a proposed state node, which is then referenced by the proposed state pointer. The proposed state node is edited to include the optimization while the current state node remains unchanged. The success of the optimization is evaluated, and an updated IL representation is generated in which any references to nodes that are no longer included in the flow of the former IL representation are removed.

    Abstract: Providing debugging support for a carried thread are disclosed. A debug agent converts between identifiers of carried threads and carrier threads. Further, a debug agent transfers debug configurations amongst multiple carrier threads associated with a same carried thread. With respect to identifier conversion, an agent receives, from a debuggee, a notification that an event occurred in association with a carrier thread. The agent determines that a carried thread is mounted on the carrier thread. The agent transmits, to the debugger, a notification that the event occurred in association with the carried thread.

  • Patent number: 10860465
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to automatically rerunning test executions. Some implementations may capture data during executions of a test. The data may include test status data, test rerun data, test owner data, and/or code committer data. Some implementations may also dynamically determine, for a failed execution of the test, a number of reruns to execute based on the captured data. Additionally, some implementations may cause in response to the dynamic determination, automatic rerun executions of the test until one of the rerun executions passes, the rerun executions being performed up to the number of times.

  • Patent number: 10789055
    Abstract: A system for compiling programs for execution thereof using a hierarchical processing system having two or more levels of memory hierarchy can perform memory-level-specific optimizations, without exceeding a specified maximum compilation time. To this end, the compiler system employs a polyhedral model and limits the dimensions of a polyhedral program representation that is processed by the compiler at each level using a focalization operator that temporarily reduces one or more dimensions of the polyhedral representation. Semantic correctness is provided via a defocalization operator that can restore all polyhedral dimensions that had been temporarily removed.
