  • Patent number: 11004170
    Abstract: Systems and methods for converting FLASH content to HTML content is described herein. A transcoder module can receive a FLASH-based content item including instructions to cause a computing device to generate or access a display list comprising display objects. The transcoder module can traverse the display list to identify a class type for each display object. The transcoder module can generate a set of HTML-based instructions based on the class type for each display object. The transcoder module can insert the generated set of HTML-based instructions into an instruction list. The transcoder module can store the instruction list in a data structure. An policy generator module can generate an execution policy. The execution policy can specify an application of a client device to execute the sets of HTML-based instructions in the instructions list based on a trigger condition.

  • Patent number: 11003428
    Abstract: A profile guided optimization compiler utilizes sample profile data including a control flow representation of a program having block counts associated with each basic block of the program, and edge counts associated with each control flow edge estimated from the block counts. The sample profile data utilizes correlation data to map the address of a sampled instruction from a fully optimized binary directly into a corresponding basic block of source code control flow of the program using a relative virtual address (RVA) that is associated with each source code basic block and the sampled instruction. The correlation data is able to differentiate multiple blocks on the same source code line and handle inlining and optimizations with greater precision and efficiency. The block counts are then used to guide the optimization of the program.

  • Patent number: 10997315
    Abstract: In various embodiments, before a data subject request can be processed, the data subject's identity may need to be verified. In various embodiments, the system provides a mechanism to automatically detect the type of authentication required for a particular data subject based on the type of Data Subject Access Request being made and automatically issues a request to the data subject to verify their identity against that form of identification. For example, a subject rights request might only require two types of authentication, but a deletion request may require four types of data to verify authentication. The system may automatically detect which is type of authentication is required based on the DSAR and send an appropriate request to the data subject to verify their identity.

  • Patent number: 10990515
    Abstract: An automated system is presented for unit testing an application in a mainframe execution environment. The system includes a test configurator, a stub setup routine and an interceptor routine. The test configurator is configured to receive and parse a test input file, where the test input file includes a record for a particular file accessed by the application using the given type of file system. Upon reading the record, the test configurator calls the stub setup routine. The stub setup routine is associated with the given type of file system and creates an object for the particular file in the mainframe execution environment, such that the object is instantiated from a class representing the given type of file system. The interceptor routine is accessible by the application. In response to a given command issued by the application for the given type of file system, the interceptor routine operates to interact with methods provided by the object.

  • Patent number: 10990427
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to computer-implemented methods, software, and systems for providing extension application mechanisms. Memory is allocated for a virtual environment to run in an address space of an application that is to be extended with extension logic in a secure manner. The virtual environment is configured for execution of commands related to an extension functionality of the application. A virtual processor for an execution of a command of the commands is initialized at the virtual environment. The virtual processor is operable to manage one or more guest operating systems (OS). A first guest OS is loaded at the allocated memory and application logic of the extension functionality is copied into the allocated memory. The virtual environment is started to execute the first guest OS and the application logic of the extension functionality in relation to associated data of the application in the allocated memory.

  • Patent number: 10990435
    Abstract: Virtual redundancy for active-standby cloud applications is disclosed herein. A virtual machine (“VM”) placement scheduling system is disclosed herein. The system can compute, for each standby VM of a plurality of available standby VMs, a minimum required placement overlap delta to meet an entitlement assurance rate (“EAR”) threshold. The system can compute a minimum number of available VM slots for activating each standby VM to meet the EAR threshold. For each standby VM of a given application, the system can filter out any server of a plurality of servers that does not meet criteria. If a given server meets the criteria, the system can add the given server to a candidate list; sort, in descending order, the candidate list by the minimum required placement overlap delta and the number of available virtual machine slots; and select, from the candidate list of servers, a candidate server from atop the candidate list.

  • Patent number: 10956212
    Abstract: A scheduler is provided for tall algorithms that include control flow statements that are dependent on tall computations. Thunks may be defined for the tall algorithms and the boundaries or limits of the thunks may be determined by places where tall variables are required to be gathered. The scheduler executes the tall algorithms by calling individually the thunks from the tall algorithms and pausing when a gather operation is required. The scheduler collectively gathers the tall variables from different tall algorithms by using an optimizer to combine I/O operations for the tall algorithms. The scheduler may put back the gathered variables into the context of each tall algorithm, and the scheduler may resume with the next thunk for each tall algorithm. This process may be repeated until all tall algorithms are finished.

  • Patent number: 10956203
    Abstract: A two-phase commit online transaction processing system injects a set of test cases into a logical unit of work (LUW) associated with a transaction. Performance of the test cases, by respective transaction process monitors (TPMs), serves to predict the outcome of the LUW processes, before the TPMs vote with respect to committing or rolling back the transaction. The system contributes to improved transaction process quality assurance by detecting potential problems before the LUW is committed.

  • Patent number: 10915373
    Abstract: MapReduce processing is carried out in a disaggregated compute environment comprising a set of resource pools that comprise a processor pool, and a memory pool. Upon receipt of a MapReduce job, a task scheduler allocates resources from the set of resource pools, the resources including one or more processors drawn from the processor pool, and one or more memory modules drawn from the memory pool. The task scheduler then schedules a set of tasks required by the MapReduce job. At least one particular task in the set is scheduled irrespective of a location of data required for the particular task. In association with a shuffle phase of the MapReduce job, and in connection with the particular task, at least one connection between a processor and at least one memory module is dynamically rewired based on the location of the data required for the particular task, thereby obviating network transfer of that data.

  • Patent number: 10901788
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for forecasting container-based resource usage. During operation, the system obtains time-series data containing resource allocations for applications deployed in one or more containers within a set of hosts. Next, the system applies one or more machine learning models to the time-series data to estimate a growth rate associated with use of a resource by an application. The system then determines an increase in allocation of the resource to the application that supports the estimated growth rate. Finally, the system outputs the increase in allocation for use in managing use of resources within the set of hosts.
