  • Patent number: 10592259
    Abstract: Various examples for application management detection are described. In one example, depending upon whether an installation token includes a unique token value, a client device can determine whether an application is managed or unmanaged. Additionally, the client device can determine whether the application is managed or unmanaged based on whether a keychain installation token includes a unique token value, a value of a keychain installation token, and a value of a launched flag for the application. Using the concepts described herein, an unmanaged application can proceed to execute with limited functionality, present a notification that it should be reinstalled by the management service, stop executing, or take other measures.

  • Patent number: 10592396
    Abstract: Presenting historical state associated with prior execution of an entity. Based on replaying segment(s) of execution of an entity based on a trace, embodiments could present an indication of whether a value of a code element is, at a first execution time point, unknown, known, previously known, and/or known in the future. Additionally, or alternatively, embodiments could present an indication of a value relied upon by simulated execution of a function at a second execution time point, along with an indication of a timing of knowledge of the value in relation to the second execution time point. Additionally, or alternatively, embodiments could present an indication that a return value of a function would be known if the function had executed at a third execution time point, or an indication that the return value would be unknown if the function had executed at the third execution time point.

  • Patent number: 10592276
    Abstract: Some computing devices have limited resources such as, for example, battery power. When a user ceases to interact with an application, execution of the application can be moved to background and the application can be paused. During the time period in which the application is paused, the application consumes no CPU cycles because executing managed threads of the paused application are stopped, and native threads are prevented from running using asynchronous procedure calls.

  • Patent number: 10592282
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to providing strong ordering in multi-stage processing of near real-time (NRT) data streams. In particular, it relates to maintaining current batch-stage information for a batch at a grid-scheduler in communication with a grid-coordinator that controls dispatch of batch-units to the physical threads for a batch-stage. This includes operating a computing grid, and queuing data from the NRT data streams as batches in pipelines for processing over multiple stages in the computing grid.

  • Patent number: 10579403
    Abstract: Techniques for placing containers in a cloud (e.g., into virtual machines (“VMs”)) based on container policies. The container policies may specify compute-related qualities, storage-related quality, and/or network-related qualities that are to be met by the underlying software and hardware that supports execution of the virtual machines. A cloud director or other entity receives requests to place containers in a particular virtual machine based on the container policies and directs placement of the virtual machine based on the policies. The cloud director may migrate and/or reconfigure VMs, virtual machine disk files, and/or virtual network interface controllers to satisfy the container placement policy. After placement, the cloud director may disable migration to maintain the VM in a desired state.

  • Patent number: 10572271
    Abstract: Efficient instantiation of encrypted guests is disclosed. In an example, a first host with a first hypervisor is separated from a second host with a second hypervisor by a network. The first hypervisor executes to allocate a requested amount of memory associated with a first guest on the first host. Pages of the requested amount of memory written to by a boot process of the first guest are tracked. The second hypervisor is requested to allocate the requested amount of memory on the second host. All tracked pages written to by the boot process are transferred to the second host. In response to transferring all of the tracked pages, a transfer completion confirmation is sent to the second hypervisor and a second guest that is a migrated copy of the first guest is instantiated on the second host with the transferred pages from the first guest.

  • Patent number: 10572433
    Abstract: A method begins by a processing module of a dispersed storage and task (DST) execution unit receiving a data request for execution by the DST execution unit, the data request including an execution deadline. The method continues with the processing module comparing the execution deadline to a current time. When the execution deadline compares unfavorably to the current time the method continues with the processing module generating an error response. When the execution deadline compares favorably to the current time the method continues with the processing module determining a priority level based on the deadline and executing the data request in accordance with the priority level.

  • Patent number: 10564949
    Abstract: In a system for automatic generation of event-driven, tuple-space based programs from a sequential specification, a hierarchical mapping solution can target different runtimes relying on event-driven tasks (EDTs). The solution uses loop types to encode short, transitive relations among EDTs that can be evaluated efficiently at runtime. Specifically, permutable loops translate immediately into conservative point-to-point synchronizations of distance one. A runtime-agnostic which can be used to target the transformed code to different runtimes.

  • Patent number: 10558489
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for suspending and restoring operations on a processor are disclosed. In one embodiment, a processor includes at least a control unit, multiple execution units, and multiple work creation units. In response to detecting a request to suspend a software application executing on the processor, the control unit sends requests to the plurality of work creation units to stop creating new work. The control unit waits until receiving acknowledgements from the work creation units prior to initiating a suspend operation. Once all work creation units have acknowledged that they have stopped creating new work, the control unit initiates the suspend operation. Also, when a restore operation is initiated, the control unit prevents any work creation units from launching new work-items until all previously in-flight work-items have been restored to the same work creation units and execution units to which they were previously allocated.

  • Patent number: 10552163
    Abstract: A method and system performs instruction scheduling in an out-of-order microprocessor pipeline. The method and system selects a first set of instructions to dispatch from a scheduler to an execution module, wherein the execution module comprises two types of execution units. The first type of execution unit executes both a first and a second type of instruction and the second type of execution unit executes only the second type. Next, the method selects a second set of instructions to dispatch, which is a subset of the first set and comprises only instructions of the second type. The method determines a third set of instructions, which comprises instructions not selected as part of the second set. Further, the method dispatches the second set for execution using the second type of execution unit and dispatching the third set for execution using the first type of execution unit.

  • Patent number: 10534593
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to optimizing an indirect call function. More specifically, an indirect call function configuration comprises a first application module having a target function of the indirect function call, a second application module with a symbolic reference to the target function of the indirect function call, and a third application module to originate an indirect function call. A compiler is provided to identify potential target functions and indicate the potential target functions in the program code. Additionally, the compiler determines and indicates in the program code that the function pointer value resulting from a non-call reference of a function symbol is solely used to perform indirect calls in the same module. A linker can read the indication the compiler made in the program code and optimize the indirect call function.
