  • Patent number: 10983868
    Abstract: Epoch-based management of file system data is disclosed. In various embodiments, for each of a plurality of snapshots, data that associates with the snapshot a corresponding last chunk identifier assigned as of a time at which the snapshot is or was created is stored a in a first data structure. For each of a plurality of chunks of file system data no longer referenced by any live file system object, an epoch identifier associated with an epoch in which the chunk became no longer referenced by any live file system object is stored in a second data structure. A chunk identifier and associated epoch comprising an entry in the second data structure are compared with one or more entries in the first data structure to determine whether a chunk associated with the chunk identifier is associated with a snapshot that continues to be retained.

  • Patent number: 10983951
    Abstract: Processing for a file system may include determining an inconsistency between a data log and inodes (index nodes) of the file system. Responsive to determining the inconsistency, recovery processing may be performed including first processing of the data log, second processing of the inodes of the file system, and third processing of the data log after said second processing. First processing may, for each entry of the data log that records a create snapshot operation to create a snapshot of a file having an associated inode of the file system that is a dirty snapshot inode, marking the associated inode as “snap validated”. Second processing may include freeing each dirty snapshot inode not marked as “snap validated”. Third processing may include freeing any entry of the data log where the entry references dirty snapshot inode freed by the second processing.

  • Patent number: 10977266
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for performing ad-hoc analytical queries of graph data. An embodiment operates by receiving a graph pattern for a subgraph of interest. The facts of interest are then selected from graph data based on the received graph pattern. Dimensions are then defined based on a dimension seed pattern and a set of level expressions, and measures are defined based on a computation function and an aggregation function. A graph cube is formed based on the selected facts and the defined dimensions and measures. Because the facts, dimensions, and measures of interest are defined at the time of an analytical query, a user does not have to define such facts, dimensions, and measures, or know which analytical queries will be of interest, at the time of data collection.

  • Patent number: 10942974
    Abstract: A system, method and the like for synchronous document captures into an asynchronous archive and document-level reconciliation of the archive process. Once a document requiring archiving has been captured and validated, the client is immediately notified that the document has been accepted into the archiving system and that archiving will ensue. Once the batch mode archiving process has been completed, the client is notified, at the document/individual request-level of the completion of the archive process. Additionally, the archiving system is transparent to the clients in terms of system changes, capable of mitigating system errors and/or notifying clients of system errors, adaptable to allow for any format of web service call requesting document archiving, allows for different types of documents having different index/metadata to be processed without a database schema change and allows users to configure archive process attributes on a per document, or per document-type basis.

  • Patent number: 10885089
    Abstract: A method enables identification of a similarity level between a user-provided data item and a data item within a set of data documents. The method includes a representation generator determining, for each term in an enumeration of terms, occurrence information. The representation generator generates, for each term, a sparse distributed representation (SDR) using the occurrence information. The method includes receiving, by a filtering module, a filtering criterion. The method includes generating, by the representation generator, for the filtering criterion, at least one SDR. The method includes generating, by the representation generator, for a first of a plurality of streamed documents received from a data source, a compound SDR. The method includes determining, by a similarity engine executing on the second computing device, a distance between the filtering criterion SDR and the generated compound SDR.
