  • Patent number: 11442798
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a software reliability simulation analysis method based on virtual reality and a complex network, which realizes a two-layer network displaying the coupling of a task network and a function complex network in a virtual reality environment and is convenient for technicians to observe the operation of the network from multiple perspectives. On the basis of a technology of virtual reality, the present invention determines the task simulation based on an operation section, observes the flow of codes and the number of passing through function nodes in real time during the execution of a task, and calculates and assesses the importance degree of the nodes. The task simulation method based on the operation section is more convincing for the assessment of the importance of the nodes.

  • Patent number: 11422903
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for maintaining and recomputing reference counts in a persistent memory file system of a node. Primary reference counts are maintained for pages within persistent memory of the node. In response to receiving a first operation to link a page into a persistent memory file system of the persistent memory, a primary reference count of the page is incremented before linking the page into the persistent memory file system. In response to receiving a second operation to unlink the page from the persistent memory file system, the page is unlinked from the persistent memory file system before the primary reference count is decremented. Upon the node recovering from a crash, the persistent memory file system is traversed in order to update shadow reference counts for the pages with correct reference count values, which are used to overwrite the primary reference counts with the correct reference count values.

  • Patent number: 11334470
    Abstract: Embodiments provide systems and methods for performing automated browser testing on different native file types by receiving files of different types. A preview version of each file can be generated and rendered in an output file type. Generating the preview version can be performed by a preview application executed by the testing system and rendering the preview version of the first file can be performed by a browser application executed by the testing system. The output file type can be different from the received file type. For example, the received file type can be a native file type of a first application different from the browser and the output file type comprises an HyperText Markup Language (HTML) file type. A test can be executed on the rendered preview version based on one or more assertions on the first file.
