  • Patent number: 10990380
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to using a single firmware slot in a slower boot media while temporarily leveraging high speed media and dual boot designs to allow booting into a cached copy of firmware to guarantee power safety while writing the single firmware slot on the slower boot media. The device boots up with original firmware stored in a first non-volatile memory device when powered on. The device then checks a second non-volatile memory device for new firmware. If there is new firmware stored in the second non-volatile memory device, the device loads the new firmware into a volatile memory device and reboots with the new firmware. The device then writes the new firmware to the firmware slot of the first non-volatile memory device. If the device experiences a power cycle while writing the new firmware, the device can reboot with a cached copy of the new firmware.

  • Patent number: 10949178
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for generating application programming interface (API) code for an application. The method generally includes receiving information indicating a set of queries invoked within an application. A set of nodes in a graph projection of the API accessed by queries in the set of queries is identified by traversing the graph projection of the API for each query in the set of queries. A subgraph projection of the API including the identified set of nodes is identified, and code implementing operations associated with the identified set of nodes is generated from the generated subgraph projection of the API. The generated code is deployed for use with the application.

  • Patent number: 10936293
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and computer system for constructing, by a computing device, a dependency graph using dependency links provided between layers of an image. Versions of the image may be inspected. Update frequencies of the layers of the image may be identified. A rank to the layers of the image may be assigned based upon, at least in part, the update frequencies of the layers of the image. A new layer arrangement for the image may be generated by ordering the new layer arrangement between a lowest ranked layer and a highest ranked layer based upon, at least in part, the dependency graph.

  • Patent number: 10929271
    Abstract: A method for finding the cause of an error or unexpected behavior of a software application includes providing a list of steps to be executed in order to achieve a certain behavior of the application in a usage scenario and providing a decision tree corresponding with the usage scenario. The decision tree comprises decision nodes that correspond with the steps in the sequence of steps to be executed and leaf nodes indicating one or more possible solutions. The method includes scanning log files to determine whether a step in the list of steps to be executed has not been executed and traversing the decision tree when a step in the list of steps has not been executed. A leaf node of the decision tree that corresponds to a non-executed step is determined and a solution is extracted from the determined leaf node.
