  • Patent number: 10642719
    Abstract: Techniques for monitoring operating statuses of an application and its dependencies are provided. A monitoring application may collect and report the operating status of the monitored application and each dependency. Through use of existing monitoring interfaces, the monitoring application can collect operating status without requiring modification of the underlying monitored application or dependencies. The monitoring application may determine a problem service that is a root cause of an unhealthy state of the monitored application. Dependency analyzer and discovery crawler techniques may automatically configure and update the monitoring application. Machine learning techniques may be used to determine patterns of performance based on system state information associated with performance events and provide health reports relative to a baseline status of the monitored application. Also provided are techniques for testing a response of the monitored application through modifications to API calls.

  • Patent number: 10635437
    Abstract: Techniques are described to automate deployment of an application as a cloud computing service. Such deployment may be accomplished on any underlying host infrastructure. As mentioned above, a typical application may engage in a number of build and deployment processes in order to run on a host computer with an infrastructure type. The techniques described herein may leverage an artificial intelligence computation library to identify which build and deployment processes are required by the application. Once identified, the user may select a host infrastructure type and create a container package with a runtime machine and components configure to run these build and deployment processes for that host infrastructure type. The container package may be used to generate an image from which the host computer can run the application as the cloud computing service. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10635694
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for instrumentation and control of workloads in a massively parallel processing database. Deployment is in a cluster which mirrors the cluster of the database to be controlled. The system includes data publishing modules, action agents, rules processing modules, deployment managers, rule compilation and management tools. Together these provide a distributed, fault tolerant system for the automated rules-based control of work in a database cluster. For example, in deploying an update, a deployment manager pushes the update to one or more nodes and instructs each of the one or more nodes to restart in a bootstrap mode. The deployment manager generates a respective configuration package for each of the one or more nodes, and restarts each of the one or more nodes in a production mode.

  • Patent number: 10621067
    Abstract: An execution circuit is configured to input data units, perform unit operations on the data units, and register results of the unit operations in response to oscillations of a clock signal. A control circuit controls activation and deactivation of the unit operations. A debug circuit inputs, in parallel with input of the data units to the execution circuit, at least one of the data unit or one or more attributes associated with the data unit. The debug circuit evaluates, upon each input of the at least one of the data unit or the one or more attributes, a breakpoint condition based on the at least one of the data unit or the one or more attributes while the clock signal oscillates. In response to evaluation of the breakpoint condition indicating a break, the debug circuit stops oscillations of the clock signal to the execution circuit.
