  • Patent number: 10599636
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and a computer system, to store information related to changed data in response to a transaction with a first database of the on-line system requested during a planned period and data in the first database changed by the transaction. In response to a planned event a back-up system with a second database is switched to set up a new connection and a new transaction with the second database, wherein the second database is backup of the first database. The on-line system prevents setting up a new connection to the on-line system and prevents conducting a new transaction with the first database, sends information related to the changed data from the on-line system to the back-up system, and switches to the back-up system for a new connection and for a new transaction. The on-line system synchronizes data between the first database and the second database.

  • Patent number: 10514983
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for memory repair for a memory device are described. An example apparatus includes: a data input/output circuit that provides data via a plurality of data signal lines; memory cell arrays; an ECC/Parity redundancy array; and a redundancy circuit coupled to the plurality of data signal lines. The redundancy circuit includes an error correction block that generates error correction information based on the data and provides the error correction information to the ECC/Parity redundancy array. If during test it is determined that a failure is not repairable by standard redundancy including error correction code, the error correction parity array is not needed and can be redirected by a block repair circuit. The error correction circuit can now have its functionality changed to allow the error correction array to become a block repair.

  • Patent number: 10514972
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods, systems, and processes to embed forensic and triage data in memory dumps. Memory dump data being written to kernel memory of a computing system by a firmware interface is detected. An operating mode of an operating system executing on the computing system is activated. Hardware forensic data is generated by reading local computer bus data, firmware event log data, and memory mapped input/output (I/O) data associated with the computing system. The hardware forensic data is then stored in a memory location of the kernel memory, causing the hardware forensic data to be included in the memory dump data being written to kernel memory.

  • Patent number: 10503600
    Abstract: A memory device receiving a host instruction generated by a host includes a flash memory array and a controller. The controller translates the host instruction into operation instructions, queues the operation instructions in a major command queue, and performs an operation on the flash memory array according to the operation instructions. When an error occurs during execution of the operation commands, the controller performs an error-handling process, queues operation commands related to the error-handling process in an auxiliary command queue, sequentially executes the operation commands in the auxiliary command queue, and stops executing the major command queue.

  • Patent number: 10496503
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed to migrating affected services away from a faulted cloud node and to handling faults during an upgrade. In one scenario, a computer system determines that virtual machines running on a first cloud node are in a faulted state. The computer system determines which cloud resources on the first cloud node were allocated to the faulted virtual machine, allocates the determined cloud resources of the first cloud node to a second, different cloud node and re-instantiates the faulted virtual machine on the second, different cloud node using the allocated cloud resources.

  • Patent number: 10496084
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments relate to a system that removes quantization effects from a set of time-series signals to produce highly accurate approximations of a set of original unquantized signals. During operation, for each time-series signal in the set of time-series signals, the system determines a number of quantization levels (NQL) in the time-series signal. Next, the system performs a fast Fourier transform (FFT) on the time-series signal to produce a set of Fourier modes for the time-series signal. The system then determines an optimal number of Fourier modes (Nmode) to reconstruct the time-series signal based on the determined NQL for the time-series signal. Next, the system selects Nmode largest-amplitude Fourier modes from the set of Fourier modes for the time-series signal. The system then performs an inverse FFT operation using the Nmode largest-amplitude Fourier modes to produce a dequantized time-series signal to be used in place of the time-series signal.
