  • Patent number: 10146885
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for ordering scripting language source code. A request for a first scripting language resource may be received. The first scripting language resource may provide one or more functionalities for a web application. A second scripting language resource may be identified based on dependency information. In some implementations, the dependency information identifies a dependency between the first scripting language resource and the second scripting language resource. A response including the first and second scripting language resources may be generated. In some implementations, the first and second scripting language resources may be ordered based on the dependency information. In various implementations, the response may be capable of being transmitted to a web browser.

  • Patent number: 10146837
    Abstract: SQL queries are optimized to operate directly on compressed data (and obtain the correct result) rather than requiring that the data be first decompressed prior to processing a query. Certain characteristic pattern trees are mapped against a logical input query plan that includes certain logical operators such as a DECOMPRESS that precedes a JOIN or a GROUPBY in association with a COUNT to identify instances in the plan that match a characteristic pattern. Upon locating a match, the input query plan is transformed into a logically equivalent plan that operates correctly on compressed data, by analyzing the interplay of the semantics of logical query operations with the compressed data and substituting less costly structures and operations. DECOMPRESS operations are moved to operate subsequent to a JOIN or eliminated altogether, and COUNT operations are replaced by a different operation, such as SUM, that is logically equivalent for compressed data.

  • Patent number: 10146854
    Abstract: In a method for table statistics update, in response to a request to modify a row in a target table, a database management system inspects a log record for the modified row in the target table, determines that the target table is configured for continuous statistics evaluation, and determines whether a mini-bin related to the modified row exists. When the mini-bin related to the modified row does not exist, the database management system creates the mini-bin. When the mini-bin related to the modified row exists, the database management system aggregates the modified row into the mini-bin, and when the mini-bin is determined to have reached a threshold size, stores the mini-bin to a disk. The database management system then consolidates a plurality of mini-bins stored in the disk and corresponding to the target table into a set of bins.

  • Patent number: 10108931
    Abstract: Mechanisms can be provided for locking a component and extending the lock to one or more additional component(s) in a visual analyzer application. Embodiments can receive a request for a first component of a document for a first thread where the document is displayed by a graphical user interface (GUI) and has components including the first component and a second component. A lock manager may lock the first component. An action handler can determine, based on code associated with an event pertaining to the request, that the second component also needs to be locked. The lock manager may lock the second component for a same thread, if the first and second components are not currently locked. Additional user actions directed to other components of the application not currently locked may still proceed, permitting asynchronous calls to be processed without interference with a previous action that has already started.

  • Patent number: 10067941
    Abstract: In response to a request to a file system to perform a requested update, a lock of a first node in a file system can be acquired, and an update of the first node can be performed while the lock of the first node is held. Also in response to the request, a lock of a second node can be acquired, and an update of the second node, which reflects the update of the first node, can be performed while the lock of the second node is held. A file system can allow a pair of update operations to be performed in parallel where both operations include updating the same container node. Additionally, while a file system is running, new namespace types can be defined, and the file system can be extended to manage nodes within the new namespace types.

  • Patent number: 10068019
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to a system for gathering and processing web data. The system provides an expression-based social media monitoring (SMM) tool that pulls from a world wide web an initial data universe that includes web data relevant to a targeted index that has been identified by an entity as being of importance to said entity. An initial set of themes relevant to the targeted index is pulled from the initial data universe, and an expression-based, cognitive data analysis tool codes the initial data universe under the initial set of relevant themes to filter portions of the initial data universe that fall under the initial set of relevant themes and portions of the initial data universe that do not fall under the initial set of relevant themes.

  • Patent number: 10025797
    Abstract: A non-conventional method and system used with computerized ledgers provides advantages of computing efficiencies, data security, and universal use. The system, method, and computer readable storage medium for storing, creating, monitoring, managing, and modifying measurement, descriptive differences, and parameters of the records of distributed computerized ledgers works through a separation and linkage of stacked modular data storage and processing. Electronic transaction records reside on distributed ledgers and modifying measurement and descriptive differences reside in decentralized or centralized storage, where computers and related networks are improved with increased functionality through increased transaction speeds, decreased data transmissions, increased security, and improved modifiable functionality. The separation of parallel layered storage and modularity of design enable the system to perform a wide range of functionality while maintaining homogeneity with the distributed computerized ledger.

  • Patent number: 10019480
    Abstract: Tuning a production database system through the use of a remote mimic. In response to receipt of a query tuning request against a database system, information about that system is obtained and a mimic of the system is set up in a remote system environment. The mimic aims to imitate the database system in all relevant ways with respect to the tuning request. A tuning analysis is then performed on this mimic system such that there is substantially no impact to operations of the original database system. Tuning results are then applied to the original database system. The entire process takes place with little or no human intervention.
