  • Patent number: 11126602
    Abstract: A key-value storage device includes a nonvolatile memory device and a memory controller. The nonvolatile memory device stores a value, a key which is referenced to identify the value, and key age data which are changed based on an erase operation of the value, and the memory controller that receives an erase command directing erasing of the value corresponding to the key from a host, generates hash data, a size of which is smaller than a size of the key, in response to the erase command, and transmits a complete message to the host. The memory controller accesses the key and the key age data stored in the nonvolatile memory device based on the hash data and erases the value based on the accessed key and the accessed key age data during an idle time after the transmission of the complete message.

  • Patent number: 11113266
    Abstract: This disclosure relates generally to detection of inconsistencies in Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) rules, and, more particularly, to detecting inconsistencies in SBVR using Many-Sorted Logic. Traditional systems and methods implementing graphical and other related techniques are not sufficient to detect anomalies in semantic rules, thereby leading to a different verification approach to detect logical anomalies and errors due to quantification. Embodiment of the present disclosure overcome the limitations faced by the traditional systems and methods by translating a set of SBVR rules into a SBVR eXtensible Markup Language Metadata Interchange (XMI); transforming the SBVR XMI into one or more Satisfiability Modulo Theories Library (SMT-LIB) formulas using at least one logical structure and semantic of Many-Sorted Logic; and detecting, from the one or more SMT-LIB formulas, one or more inconsistencies in semantics of SBVR by using a SMT solver invocation.

  • Patent number: 11109085
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to training a recommendation model to generate trait recommendations using one permutation hashing and populated-value-slot-based densification. In particular, the disclosed systems can train the recommendation model by computing sketch vectors corresponding to traits using one permutation hashing. The disclosed systems can then fill in unpopulated value slots of the sketch vectors using populated-value-slot-based densification. The disclosed systems can combine the resulting densified sketches to generate the trained recommendation model. For example, in some embodiments, the disclosed systems can combine the sketches by generating a plurality of locality sensitive hashing tables based on the sketches. In some embodiments, the disclosed systems generate a count sketch matrix based on the sketches and generate trait embeddings based on the count sketch matrix using spectral embedding.

  • Patent number: 11106442
    Abstract: Data intake and query system (DIQS) instances supporting applications including lower-tier, focused, work group oriented applications may be tailored to meet the specific needs of the users. Rather than offer pre-configured options, the DIQS-based application offers the user the ability to customize data collection before deploying the collectors for specified host entities within an IT environment. Once the user selects the metrics and/or log sources for data collection at a custom interface, the lower-tier DIQS generates custom script operable to establish collection of the source data having the selected metrics and events associated with selected log sources from the specified host entities. The user can display and analyze the collected data.

  • Patent number: 11093518
    Abstract: Data intake and query system (DIQS) instances supporting applications including lower-tier, focused, work group oriented applications, are tailored to display the metrics for the needs of the user. An interface caused by operation of an entity monitoring system (EMS) operating in conjunction with the lower-tier DIQS displays the monitored entities as individual representations. The user selects a metric and a metric threshold. The EMS causes a display of an interface having a representation for each monitored entity. Each representation includes a metric value and indicates an entity status based on the metric value and the threshold. The user can dynamically change the threshold on the interface for easy visualization of aggregation of monitored entities to determine the performance of the infrastructure. The interface also provides the user with the ability to select an entity and click through to the entity analysis workspace for more detailed information.

  • Patent number: 11095376
    Abstract: Residual noise of a frequency mixer is detected. A reference clock is used to generate a first radio frequency (RF) signal, a second RF signal and a third RF signal. The first RF signal and the second RF signal serve as input to the frequency mixer. The reference clock is used to generate a third RF signal. The reference clock is also used to control timing in a detector device. A second frequency mixer mixes an output of the DUT with the third RF signal to produce an input signal for a detector device. Mixing the output of the DUT with the third RF signal cancels at least some of the phase noise within the output signal of the DUT that results from phase noise in the first RF signal and from phase noise in the second RF signal. The detector device detects residual phase noise existing within the input signal for the detector device.

  • Patent number: 11074137
    Abstract: Techniques are described for exchanging files between users via a server environment that maintains copies of file system data from user computing devices. For example, the server environment can maintain a copy of file system data from the file system of a first computing device associated with a first user. The server environment can receive a file request from a second user that requests a file (e.g., by describing the file) from the first user whose files are backed up at the server environment. The server environment can send a request to the first user to approve the file request. After receiving approval, the server environment can send the file to the second user (e.g., as an automatic download to a computing device associated with the second user).
