  • Patent number: 10877805
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer program products are provided. Metadata associated with an integration flow comprising a sequence of nodes are received. The metadata identifies data in one or more data objects used by the nodes of the integration flow. In response to initiation of the integration flow, an input data object is received. Initial context data for the integration flow are extracted, from the input data object, based on the metadata. The context data is processed at each of the nodes of the integration flow, wherein one or more of the nodes adds data from its output data object to the context data based on the metadata. Remaining data from the output data objects of one or more of the nodes which was not added to the context data based on the metadata is discarded.

  • Patent number: 10860373
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and software technology for governing resource utilization in a computing environment. In an implementation, a governance thread started by a job manager process identifies threads running within the job manager process and associates each of the threads with one of various jobs. The governance thread then tracks a resource utilization level of each of the jobs based on the resource utilization level of each of the threads associated with the job. When the resource utilization level of any of the jobs exceeds a threshold, the governance thread is able to shut down at least one of the threads associated with the job.

  • Patent number: 10810031
    Abstract: An example method of tracking memory modified by an assigned device includes allocating, by a hypervisor running a virtual machine, guest memory to a guest running on the virtual machine, where a device is assigned to the virtual machine. The method also includes reading, while the virtual machine is running on the hypervisor, a first input/output (I/O) state that indicates whether the device is currently processing one or more I/O requests, where the first I/O state is writable by the guest. The method further includes determining whether the first I/O state indicates that the device is currently processing one or more I/O requests. The method also includes determining to not transmit a memory page to a destination in response to determining that the first I/O state indicates that the device is currently processing one or more I/O requests. The memory page corresponds to the first I/O state.

  • Patent number: 10768997
    Abstract: A type of a request that is currently being processed at a system is determined. A distribution is selected from a set of processing time distributions, the distribution forming a model that is applicable to the type. A threshold point is computed for the model. A processing time that exceeds a threshold point processing time is regarded as exhibiting tail latency. Tail latency includes a delay in processing of the request due to a reason other than a utilization of a resource of the system exceeding a threshold utilization and a size of a queue in the system exceeding a threshold size. An evaluation is made that the request will experience tail latency during processing at the system and the processing of the request at the system is aborted. The request is offloaded for processing at a peer system in a load-balanced group of systems.

  • Patent number: 10725806
    Abstract: A volume rehost tool migrates a storage volume from a source virtual server within a distributed storage system to a destination storage server within the distributed storage system. The volume rehost tool can prevent client access to data on the volume through the source virtual server until the volume has been migrated to the destination virtual server. The tool identifies a set of storage objects associated with the volume, removes configuration information for the set of storage objects, and removes a volume record associated with the source virtual server for the volume. The tool can then create a new volume record associated with the destination virtual server, apply the configuration information for the set of storage objects to the destination virtual server, and allow client access to the data on the volume through the destination virtual server.

  • Patent number: 10691481
    Abstract: A system and method include determining underprovisioning of a guest physical memory of a virtual machine running on a computing node. The node includes hardware resources that are mapped the guest physical memory by a hypervisor. The hypervisor receives page fault information from the virtual machine based on page faults in the virtual machine. The hypervisor generates a table that includes virtual memory address-process indicator pair entries and corresponding page fault numbers. The hypervisor removes those entries that have a corresponding page fault number that is less than a first threshold value. The hypervisor determines a size of a revolving memory based on the number of remaining entries and a page size of the guest physical memory. If the revolving memory size is less than a second threshold value in relation to the allocated size of the guest physical memory, the hypervisor indicates underprovisioning of the guest physical memory.
