  • Patent number: 11836095
    Abstract: Techniques for intelligently routing IO to a storage class memory (SCM) namespace are disclosed. A configuration for a namespace is determined, where the configuration indicates a type of IO that the namespace is structured to handle. Details about the configuration of the namespace are stored in a repository. A forwarding rule is generated based on the namespace's stored configuration. When incoming IO having attributes similar to that type is received, implementation of the forwarding rule causes the incoming IO to be directed to the namespace. Attributes of a particular incoming IO are determined. As a result of the attributes satisfying a similarity threshold relative to the type, the forwarding rule is implemented such that the particular incoming IO is directed to the namespace.

    Abstract: A communication system includes a central, zone ECUs capable of communicating with the central ECU via a communication bus, and zone ECUs capable of communicating with the central ECU via a communication bus. The central ECU periodically transmits, to the communication buses, a count signal including a count value counted up every time the count signal is transmitted, transmits a control signal including a start count value and control content to the communication buses, and sets a transmission priority of the count signal to be higher than a transmission priority of the control signal. The zone ECUs receive the count signal and the control signal, after the control signal is received, when the count value included in the received count signal becomes equal to the start count value included in the control signal, an operation corresponding to the control content included in the control signal is started.

  • Patent number: 11757607
    Abstract: During the development of Low Power Mode (LPM) (also known as L2 Mode) for DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) systems, it has become apparent that one of the most important issues is the impact on deployed legacy DSL systems. Legacy DSL systems are not capable of operating in the presence of large changes in crosstalk noise from neighbouring lines entering and exiting LPMs. For example, prior LPM methods at least do not assure that legacy lines will be protected to guarantee that no retrains will occur. These and other issues are addressed herein.

  • Patent number: 11748293
    Abstract: A method of automatic identification of PCIe configuration of a server and preventing operation if each slimline connector connected with a PCIe device is found connected to an incorrect slot of a mother board utilizes a combination of first and second signals of two null interfaces of the first connector as that ID signal and a combination of third and fourth signals of the two interfaces of a second connector as that ID signal. The CPLD receiving the ID signals detects whether the first and second slimline connectors are in their specified and correct slots. Powering on of computer is not permitted if incorrect connection is found, and a warning prompt is generated. A PCIe channel width for each slimline is automatically configured if no incorrect connection is found. A server applying the method is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11734037
    Abstract: An interrupt signal is provided to a guest operating system. A bus connected module is operationally connected with a plurality of processors via a bus attachment device. The bus attachment device receives an interrupt signal from the bus connected module with an interrupt target ID identifying one of the processors assigned for use by the guest operating system as a target processor for handling the interrupt signal. The bus attachment device checks whether the target processor is running using a running indicator provided by an interrupt table entry stored in a memory operationally connected with the bus attachment device. If the target processor is running, the bus attachment device forwards the interrupt signal to the target processor for handling. A translation of the interrupt target ID to a logical processor ID of the target processor is used to address the target processor directly.

  • Patent number: 11734204
    Abstract: Examples herein relate to polling for input/output transactions of a network interface or a storage device, or any peripheral device. Some examples monitor clock cycles spent checking for a presence of input/output (I/O) events and processing I/O events and monitor clock cycles spent checking for presence of I/O events without completing an I/O event. Central processing unit (CPU) core utilization can be based on clock cycles spent checking for a presence of I/O events and processing I/O events and clock cycles spent checking for presence of I/O events without completion of an I/O event. For example, if core utilization is below a threshold, frequency of the core can be reduced for performing polling of I/O events. If core utilization is at or above the threshold, frequency of the core can be increased used to performing polling of I/O events.
