  • Patent number: 10324745
    Abstract: Systems herein include thin clients that operate with managed profile-based virtual machines. This can allow users to utilize personal user devices in an enterprise environment without subjecting sensitive enterprise credentials to the user device. A management server can determine a profile associated with the user device. Based on the profile, a virtual machine can be instantiated at a thin server, remotely from the thin client. The profile-specific virtual machine can include a particular guest operating system, guest applications, security features, or functionality. The instance of the virtual machine can communicate graphics information from a guest application to the thin client, and the thin client can communicate user interface events to the instance for controlling the guest application.

  • Patent number: 10310882
    Abstract: In the various aspects, virtualization techniques may be used to improve performance and reduce the amount of power consumed by selectively enabling a hypervisor operating on a computing device during sandbox sessions. In the various aspects, a high-level operating system may allocate memory such that its intermediate physical addresses are equal to the physical addresses. When the hypervisor is disabled, the hypervisor may suspend second stage translations from intermediate physical addresses to physical addresses. During a sandbox session, the hypervisor may be enabled and resume performing second stage translations.

  • Patent number: 10310912
    Abstract: Data processing workloads are selectively assigned within a data center and/or among data centers based on non-data processing overhead within the data center and/or among the data centers. Power consumption of a rack including servers is predicted based on data processing demands that are placed on the servers for a given data processing workload, and power consumed by the rack is measured when the servers are performing the given data processing workload. A metric of power consumed by the rack for non-data processing overhead is derived based on a difference between results of the predicting and the measuring. A future data processing workload is selectively assigned to the rack based on the metric of power of power consumed by the rack for the non-data processing overhead. Assignment may also take place at an aisle and/or data center level based on these metrics.

  • Patent number: 10296443
    Abstract: A system and methods for automatically localizing faults for functional field failures that enables users to enter symptoms of a failure that occur during deployment of a given application along with the values of the input and configuration parameters in order to return locations in the source code that are likely to contain specific faults as well as show navigation paths from a suggested to the failure such that the code may be corrected. Successful and faulty runs of a software application are executed, and used to obtain ground facts and a knowledge base. A particular formula for the ground facts and knowledge base is discussed. A Markov Logic Network (MLN) is generated from the ground facts and knowledge base. Abductive reasoning based on the MLN is used to localize faults for the user-entered functional field failures.

  • Patent number: 10289454
    Abstract: A system may perform work stealing using a dynamically configurable separation between stealable and non-stealable work items. The work items may be held in a double-ended queue (deque), and the value of a variable (index) may indicate the position of the last stealable work item or the first non-stealable work item in the deque. A thread may steal a work item only from the portion of another thread's deque that holds stealable items. The owner of a deque may add work items to the deque and may modify the number or percentage of stealable work items, the number or percentage of non-stealable work items, and/or the ratio between stealable and non-stealable work items in the deque during execution. For example, the owner may convert stealable work items to non-stealable work items, or vice versa, in response to changing conditions and/or according to various work-stealing policies.

  • Patent number: 10282182
    Abstract: Technologies for optimized binary translation include a computing device that determines a cost-benefit metric associated with each translated code block of a translation cache. The cost-benefit metric is indicative of translation cost and performance benefit associated with the translated code block. The translation cost may be determined by measuring translation time of the translated code block. The cost-benefit metric may be calculated using a weighted cost-benefit function based on an expected workload of the computing device. In response to determining to free space in the translation cache, the computing device determines whether to discard each translated code block as a function of the cost-benefit metric. In response to determining to free space in the translation cache, the computing device may increment an iteration count and skip each translated code block if the iteration count modulo the corresponding cost-benefit metric is non-zero. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10282275
    Abstract: Management of an extensive code database having multiple user tenants building code is provided. A request to check-in code is received, and a build and validation to check-in the update to a user's code is performed. The validation results in indication of an error due to a bad state of the system that performed the build. The build machine is rebooted, and a second build is performed. Optionally, a user is prompted during a grace time period to cancel the corrective action of rebooting the build machine. Optionally, the validation error may be indicated as a product issue, a network issue, or a known limitation in the compiler. Optionally, other corrective actions such as preventing retrying the build and escalating the error may be taken. Optionally, the build may be prevented when the check-in includes code that produced an error on a previous build.

  • Patent number: 10275269
    Abstract: Approaches for performing nested virtualization using a hypervisor which does not support nested virtualization. A first hypervisor is loaded upon booting a computing device. The first hypervisor instantiates a first virtual machine, exposes an emulated hardware virtualization support interface to the first virtual machine, and executes a second hypervisor, which does not support nested virtualization, within the first virtual machine. The first hypervisor provides nested virtualization support to the second hypervisor to allow the second hypervisor to execute a third hypervisor within a second virtual machine by the first hypervisor abstracting hardware virtualization support to the third hypervisor.
