  • Patent number: 11681595
    Abstract: Disclosed are hardware and techniques for testing computer processes in a network system by simulating computer process faults and identifying risk associated with correcting the simulated fault and identifying computer processes that may depend on the corrected computer process. The interdependent computer processes in a network may be determined by evaluating a risk matrix having a risk score and non-functional requirement score. An analysis of the risk score and non-functional requirement score accounts for interdependencies between computer processes and identified corrective actions that may be used to determine an optimal network environment. The optimal network environment may be updated dynamically based on changing computer process interdependencies and the determined risk and robustness scores.

  • Patent number: 11681574
    Abstract: A system and method for the distributed analysis of high frequency transaction trace data to constantly categorize incoming transaction data, identify relevant transaction categories, create per-category statistical reference and current data and perform statistical tests to identify transaction categories showing overall statistically relevant performance anomalies. The relevant transaction category detection considers both the relative transaction frequency of categories compared to the overall transaction frequency and the temporal stability of a transaction category over an observation duration. The statistical data generated for the anomaly tests contains next to data describing the overall performance of transactions of a category also data describing the transaction execution context, like the number of concurrently executed transactions or transaction load during an observation period.

  • Patent number: 11675664
    Abstract: A storage controller has an operating system (OS) and power control firmware configured to manage use of battery power during a power outage event. The OS specifies to the power control firmware first and second sets of physical components that should be shed by power control firmware during a two-phase vault process. Upon a power failure, the power control firmware turns off power to the first set of physical components and notifies the OS of the power failure. The OS determines whether to abort or continue the vault process. If the OS aborts the vault process, the power control firmware restores power to the first set of physical components. If the OS continues the vault process, the power control firmware turns off power to the second set of physical components, the OS saves application state, and moves all data from volatile memory to persistent memory.

  • Patent number: 11650880
    Abstract: A write hole protection method and system for a RAID, and a storage medium. The method comprises: presetting a log area, and after a RAID is degraded, setting the log area to be in an enabled state; when the log area is in the enabled state, determining, before each stripe write operation, whether a data block of a failed member disk of the RAID in a stripe is a check data block; if the data block is not the check data block, determining whether data blocks to be written of the stripe comprise a data block to be written into the failed member disk; if yes, backing up the data block to be written into the failed member disk in the log area; if not, calculating the data block of the failed member disk and backing up the data block in the log area, or backing up the data blocks to be written in the log area; and when the degraded RAID is started after a failure, performing data recovery using the log area. By using the present solution, the write hole issue of the RAID is avoided.

  • Patent number: 11593270
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for providing rapid access to data objects stored in a cache. Rather than storing data objects directly, each object can be broken into a number of parts via erasure coding, which enables the object to be generated from less than all parts. When servicing a request for the data object, a device can attempt to retrieve all parts, but begin to generate the data object as soon as a sufficient number of parts is retrieved, even if requests for other parts are outstanding. In this way, the data object can be retrieved without delay due to the slowest requests. For example, where one or more requests timeout, such as due to failure of cache devices, this timeout may have no effect on time required to retrieve the data object from the cache.
