  • Patent number: 10346421
    Abstract: A system provides data profile information describing attributes of a dataset. The system determines relative frequency of occurrences of attribute values with respect to a set of bins from a histogram of another attribute. The system presents a user interface that presents statistical information describing attributes of a dataset based on the relative frequency of occurrences of attribute values. The system generates a transformation script based on the user interactions for transforming records of the dataset. The transformation script is configured to preprocess data of the dataset for further analysis.

  • Patent number: 10303550
    Abstract: The illustrative storage management system uses snapshot technologies and performs block-level analysis thereof and to synthesize full backups of a database, regardless of the database management system (DBMS) and content of the database and without involving native DBMS utilities. Synthetic full copies are created efficiently and use network transport resources sparingly. Successive snapshots of the database may be hardware snapshots and/or software snapshots. The illustrative storage management system tracks which data blocks in the database change over time after a baseline full copy is saved to secondary storage. Only the changed blocks are subsequently moved to secondary storage as incremental backups and are indexed for future reference. A synthetic full backup of the database, at a given point in time, may be created by synthesizing the original full backup with changed blocks from any number of later incremental backups.

  • Patent number: 10289687
    Abstract: A system is described for backing-up a client device to a server using space-optimized snapshots. A snapshot is captured on the client device. The system determines which files of the snapshot are required to be uploaded to perform a backup. Thereafter, the system monitors the required files (and not other files) for write commands and directs write operations for the required files to be performed copy-on-write. After a required file is uploaded, the system stops monitoring the file and any copy-on-write data that may have been generated for the file is removed from the snapshot to conserve space. The process continues until all required files are uploaded.

  • Patent number: 10275839
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for improving use of a social network. During operation, the system obtains a set of member features associated with a member of a social network and a set of attribute features associated with a set of member attributes. Next, the system analyzes the member features and the attribute features to predict a propensity of the member to accept recommendations of the member attributes as profile edits to a member profile of the member. The system then uses the predicted propensity to output a subset of the member attributes as recommended profile edits to the member.

  • Patent number: 10268746
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for maintaining data persistently in one format, but making that data available to a database server in more than one format. For example, one of the formats in which the data is made available for query processing is based on the on-disk format, while another of the formats in which the data is made available for query processing is independent of the on-disk format. Data that is in the format that is independent of the disk format may be maintained exclusively in volatile memory to reduce the overhead associated with keeping the data in sync with the on-disk format copies of the data.

  • Patent number: 10223433
    Abstract: Systems, methods and tools for mapping data elements between a source data structure and a target data structure without the needing exactly matching values or a dictionary of synonyms. The embodiments of the present disclosure auto map data elements having similar phonetic sounds, even in the presence of one or more misspellings or alternative spellings. Embodiments of the present disclosure utilize Soundex algorithms to generate a key corresponding to each source and target data elements. Each Soundex key may be generated based on the phonetical sounds of the source and target data elements. By using phonetical sounds to generate the key, a Soundex algorithm allows for similarly sounding words, alternatively spelled words or misspelled words to generate the same Soundex key, creating equivalence between the naming of source and target data elements once the auto mapping function is implemented.

  • Patent number: 10204147
    Abstract: A system and method for the capture, storage and analysis of multidimensional time series data from sources with heterogeneous reporting profiles has been devised. Data from sets of sensors that send variable amounts of multidimensional data at irregular intervals is received by a data processing device which processes the raw data to extract the parameters of interest and held until a preset number of sensor events or amount of stream data is received. The data is then committed to a data store until time of analysis. Older data is written to archive storage. The system allows complex selection and transformation of data store data by robust query language.
