  • Patent number: 11636028
    Abstract: A method for testing a system under test (SUT) in an active environment to identify cause of a soft failure includes recording a first difference vector by executing a set of test cases on a baseline system and monitoring performance parameters of the baseline system before and after executing the test cases. Each performance record represents differences in the performance parameters of the baseline system from before and after the execution of a corresponding test case. The method further includes, similarly, recording a second difference vector by executing the test cases on the SUT and monitoring performance parameters of the SUT before and after executing the test cases. The method further includes identifying an outlier performance record from the second difference vector by comparing the difference vectors and further, determining a root cause of the soft failure by analyzing a test case corresponding to the outlier.

  • Patent number: 11615015
    Abstract: A trace anomaly grouping and visualization technique logically groups traces with anomalies to cases to enable software developers to monitor, diagnose and visualize the anomalies, as well as to solve the anomalies during application development and production. A client library of an investigative platform collects signals from traces (trace signal information). The technique organizes (groups) related trace signals of methods with anomalies (e.g., exceptions, performance abnormalities such as slowness) into datasets (denominated as “cases”) based on common cause for an anomaly and correlates the signals to identify a case. The collected information may be used to differentiate between root causes of the anomalies using a comparative visualization of traces displayed on a standard user interface of the investigative platform.

  • Patent number: 11604720
    Abstract: Based on replay of a thread, one implementation observes an influx of a value of a memory cell comprising an interaction between the thread and the value of the memory cell at an execution time point in the replaying, and determines whether the value of the memory cell observed from the influx is inconsistent with a prior value of the memory cell as known by the thread at the execution time point. If so, this implementation initiates an indication of a data inconsistency. Based on replay of a plurality of threads, another implementation identifies a memory cell that was accessed by a first thread while a thread synchronization mechanism was active on the first thread. Then, if there was another access to the memory cell by a second thread without use of the thread synchronization mechanism, this implementation initiates an indication of a potential data contention.

  • Patent number: 11593103
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for anti-pattern detection in extraction and deployment of a microservice. A software modernization service is executed to analyze a computing application to identify various applications. When one or more of the application components are specified to be extracted as an independently deployable subunit, anti-patterns associated with deployment of the independently deployable subunit are determined prior to extraction. Anti-patterns may include increases in execution time, bandwidth, network latency, central processing unit (CPU) usage, and memory usage among other anti-patterns. The independently deployable subunit is selectively deployed separate from the computing application based on the identified anti-patterns.

  • Patent number: 11593073
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing object-oriented infrastructure-as-code platform (“OOIACP”) and its functionalities. In various embodiments, an OOIACP may receive a request to perform a function from a requesting device. The OOIACP includes a declarative configuration language (“DCL”)-based infrastructure-as-code (“IAC”) software tool that provides structure and data functionalities and a wrapper tool that provides algorithm and sequence functionalities to the IAC software tool to convert the IAC software tool into an object-oriented programming (“OOP”)-based IAC system. The OOIACP uses a run command to perform the requested function, by identifying classes within a class hierarchy associated with the requested function, and initiating a set of procedures in each identified class. Each class and subclass within the class hierarchy has one or more predefined class behaviors, and each subclass inherits class behaviors of classes to which it belongs and of any intermediate subclasses.

  • Patent number: 11593251
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for generating an execution plan for performing functional tests in a cloud-computing environment. Infrastructure resources and capabilities (e.g., system requirements) may be defined within an infrastructure object (e.g., a resource of a declarative infrastructure provisioner) that stores a code segment that implements the resource or capability. Metadata may be maintained that indicates what particular capabilities are applicable to each infrastructure resource. Using the metadata, the system can generate an execution plan by combining code segments for each resource with code segments defining each capability in accordance with the metadata. The execution plan may include programmatic instructions that, when executed, generate a set of test results. The system can execute instructions that cause the set of test results to be presented at a user device.

  • Patent number: 11586527
    Abstract: A model of an algorithm to be tested is created based on the steps that the algorithm uses to implement a particular function. The model is used by an algorithm verification process to control execution of the application under test. Stubs (small pieces of code) are inserted into the application under test which are used to control execution of the algorithm to determine the result of execution of the algorithm at various locations. The remote stubs enable the testing framework to control execution of the application, stop execution of the application, view data structures associated with the application, freeze system behavior, induce multi-layered dependent sequences, analyze logs, change system flow based on test requests, examine internal data structures as part of the tests, and verify that each method and the combined results of the methods are as expected, based on the original definition of the application algorithm.

  • Patent number: 11531613
    Abstract: Devices at different geolocations are configured to determine and share information regarding execution of an application under various conditions. Data determined by a user device includes private information, such as screen capture data, location data, or information about the user. The user device processes the data locally, such as by determining performance metrics or other characteristics of execution of the application, and sends this information to a server. The data sent to the server excludes the private information. The server determines additional data associated with execution of the application by devices other than the user device, which may include screen capture data or location data associated with those other devices. The additional data is used in conjunction with the data received from the user device to generate interfaces indicative of performance metrics of the application.
