  • Patent number: 11960928
    Abstract: An event monitoring system includes a processor and a storage unit. The storage unit holds an event message including a character string related to an event occurring in an information system and guide information including one or more guides. The guide includes a guide message including a predetermined character string, notified in response to the event, and information regarding a coping method for the event. The processor compares the event message and the guide, associates the guide with the event in a case where the guide further includes information for identifying a variable portion of the guide message and a portion other than the variable portion of the guide message coincides with a portion other than a portion corresponding to the variable portion in the event message, and receives an input of information indicating a correct answer of a guide to be associated with the event in a case where the guide does not include the information for identifying the variable portion.

  • Patent number: 11960936
    Abstract: The subject matter described herein provides systems and techniques to address the challenges of growing hardware and workload heterogeneity using a Warehouse-Scale Computer (WSC) design that improves the efficiency and utilization of WSCs. The WSC design may include an abstraction layer and an efficiency layer in the software stack of the WSC. The abstraction layer and the efficiency layer may be designed to improve job scheduling, simplify resource management, and drive hardware-software co-optimization using machine learning techniques and automation in order to customize the WSC for applications at scale. The abstraction layer may embrace platform/hardware and workload diversity through greater coordination between hardware and higher layers of the WSC software stack in the WSC design. The efficiency layer may employ machine learning techniques at scale to realize hardware/software co-optimizations as a part of the autonomous WSC design.

  • Patent number: 11960917
    Abstract: For a first server virtual machine (VM) virtualizing a logical volume in a read/write mode for a client VM, a second server VM virtualizing the logical volume in an off mode is instantiated. The logical volume comprises a virtualization of a portion of physical storage. At the first server VM, the logical volume is deactivated, the deactivating disallowing the first server VM from performing a storage request from the client VM. At the second server VM, the logical volume is activated, the activating performed by causing the second VM to virtualize the logical volume in the read/write mode, the activating allowing the second server VM to perform the storage request.

  • Patent number: 11960945
    Abstract: Message passing circuitry comprises lookup circuitry responsive to a producer request indicating message data provided on a target message channel by a producer node of a system-on-chip, to obtain, from a channel consumer information structure, selected channel consumer information associated with a given consumer node subscribing to the target message channel. Control circuitry writes the message data to a location associated with an address in a consumer-defined region of address space determined based on the selected channel consumer information. When an event notification condition is satisfied for the target message channel and the given consumer node, and an event notification channel is to be used, event notification data is written to a location associated with an address in a consumer-defined region of address space determined based on event notification channel consumer information associated with the event notification channel.

  • Patent number: 11934874
    Abstract: A serverless query processing system receives a query and determines whether the query is a recurring query or a non-recurring query. The system may predict, in response to determining that the query is the recurring query, a peak resource requirement during an execution of the query. The system may compute, in response to determining that the query is the non-recurring query, a tight resource requirement corresponding to an amount of resources that satisfy a performance requirement over the execution of the query, where the tight resource requirement is less than the peak resource requirement. The system allocates resources to the query based on an applicable one of the peak resource requirement or the tight resource requirement. The system then starts the execution of the query using the resources.

  • Patent number: 11907286
    Abstract: Improved systems and devices for medical imaging distribution are provided. A medical imaging order may be received from a medical facility that includes medical imaging. A configuration may be selected and applied based on a body site and an urgency field associated with the order that defines queueing rules for the medical imaging order. Utilization factors for queues associated with radiologists may also be determined. The configuration and the utilization factors may be used to determine a subset of queues associated with a subset of radiologists. The subset of queues may be prioritized based on certain requirements, such as how many medical imaging reports a particular radiologist is required to review, how many medical imaging reports are required to be allocated to a particular radiologist, and the like. The highest prioritized queue may be selected and the medical imaging order may be transmitted to the radiologist associated with that queue.

  • Patent number: 11900153
    Abstract: Techniques and solutions are described for implementing virtual domains. Computing resources in a computing environment are determined and assigned to one or more virtual domains. One or more data structures can be located in a given virtual domain. The computing resources assigned to a virtual domain can be dynamically reconfigured without affecting processes that submit tasks to be performed on data structures in the virtual domains. Tasks can be submitted to a dispatcher, which can determine the appropriate virtual domain for the task and forward the task to the determined virtual domain. Tasks are received by virtual domains and assigned to worker threads, which can access a data structure specified for a given task.
