  • Patent number: 11995066
    Abstract: At a logging service, a representation of a transaction requested by a client is received. The transaction includes at least a first write operation directed to a data object at a first data store. Based at least in part on the contents of the representation and contents of a persistent log of the logging service, a determination is made that the requested transaction is to be committed. A log record corresponding to the first write operation is inserted into the persistent log. The first write is propagated to the first data store after the record has been inserted in the persistent log.

  • Patent number: 11994952
    Abstract: Embodiments automate the timely remediation of issues by matching failed operations to a script that is configured to fix the problem or problems without causing additional side effects, thus minimizing unavailability of services/data and loss of data. A method detects a backup operation alert message sent from a data manager or storage system that encodes one or more attributes affected by the backup operation. A script library is scanned to identify scripts that match the alert message. A component generates a score for each script, where the score factors the relevance of the script to the backup operation, and executes the script with the highest score, as the script most likely to remediate the issue causing the alert message.

  • Patent number: 11989194
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for distributed processing a query in a first query language utilizing a query execution engine intended for single-device execution. While distributed processing provides numerous benefits over single-device processing, distributed query execution engines can be significantly more difficult to develop that single-device engines. Embodiments of this disclosure enable the use of a single-device engine to support distributed processing, by dividing a query into multiple stages, each of which can be executed by multiple, concurrent executions of a single-device engine. Between stages, data can be shuffled between executions of the engine, such that individual executions of the engine are provided with a complete set of records needed to implement an individual stage. Because single-device engines can be significantly less difficult to develop, use of the techniques described herein can enable a distributed system to rapidly support multiple query languages.

  • Patent number: 11989744
    Abstract: A computing system receives a plurality of payloads from a plurality of computing devices, each of the plurality of payloads comprising one or more events for a pageview corresponding to a respective website. For every predefined time period, the computing system collects a plurality of payloads received within the predefined time period, stores the collected plurality of payloads in a single file in a datastore, generates metadata associated with the single file, and stores the generated metadata in a database comprising metadata for a plurality of single files. When the computing system receives a request for a pageview of a website, the computing system accesses the database to determine a plurality of payloads within one or more single files comprising payloads for the pageview of the website. The computing system generates the pageview by assembling the plurality of payloads for the pageview of the website.

  • Patent number: 11989095
    Abstract: The described embodiments set forth techniques for preserving clone relationships between files at a computing device. In particular, the techniques involve identifying clone relationships between files in conjunction with performing operations on the files where it can be beneficial to preserve the clone relationships. The operations can include, for example, preserving clone relationships between files that are being copied from a source storage device (that supports file cloning) to a destination storage device that supports file cloning. Additionally, the operations can include preserving clone relationships when backing up and restoring files between a source storage device (that supports file cloning) and a destination storage device that does not support file cloning. In this manner, the various benefits afforded by the clone relationships between files can be retained even as the files are propagated to destination storage devices that may or may not support file cloning.

  • Patent number: 11984198
    Abstract: First and second sequenced outputs are accessed. The sequenced outputs contain variants occurring at different carriers and at different carrier positions. Hashes are generated over a selected pattern length of positions for those carrier positions that are shared between the sequenced outputs to produce window hashes for base patterns in first and second sequences. Each sequence is based on the shared carrier positions and the respective sequenced output. The window hashes are non-unique. Window hashes that occur less than a ceiling number times are selected. The selected window hashes are compared between the sequences on a starting position basis such that selected window hashes for base patterns having same start positions in the sequenced outputs are compared. Common window hashes are identified between the sequences based on the comparing. A similarity measure is determined between the sequences based on the common window hashes.

  • Patent number: 11977525
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-readable storage medium for transferring data segments from one computer system to a second computing system. Prior to transfer of the data segments, the first system calculates compressibility ratio of each segment and compares the compressibility ratio to a preset threshold. Based on the comparison, the first system assigns a compressibility hint to each segment. The first system transfers the segments to the second system, together with the corresponding compressibility hint. The second system stores each segment in a compressible region or in a non-compressible region based on the hint. Then the second system compresses the compressible region and stores the compressed region in a container, and stores the non-compressible region uncompressed in the container.
