  • Patent number: 11809414
    Abstract: A distributed database system can implement a column-based database system and a row-based database system for processing data. The row-based database system can store data organized into key value pairs, and data to be processed by the row-based database system is converted to a key-value format compressing keys that correspond to values. The distributed database system can perform serialization and compression in converting the data to the key-value format for efficient data storage performance. The distributed database system can unpack portions of the converted serialized compressed data in response to queries that process a portion of serialized compressed data without unpacking the entire converted dataset.

  • Patent number: 11809386
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed in which a computer system implements schema changes for existing database objects by maintaining a logical name and a current physical name corresponding to an existing database object, where the logical name points to the current physical name. The system receives a schema change request specifying the logical name and format changes for the existing object. The system performs a schema change operation in response to the request, including: creating a new database object having a new physical name, copying and transforming data from the existing object to the new object according to the format changes, mirroring new writes directed to the logical name to both the existing and new objects, and causing the logical name to point to the new physical name instead of the current physical name after completing the copying. The system responds to subsequent queries, specifying the logical name, from the new object.

  • Patent number: 11797515
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods, systems, and non-transitory computer-readable media for determining causal contributions of dimension values to anomalous data based on causal effects of such dimension values on the occurrence of other dimension values from interventions performed in a causal graph. For example, the disclosed systems can identify an anomalous dimension value that reflects a threshold change in value between an anomalous time period and a reference time period. The disclosed systems can determine causal effects by traversing a causal network representing dependencies between different dimensions associated with the dimension values. Based on the causal effects, the disclosed systems can determine causal contributions of particular dimension values on the anomalous dimension value. Further, the disclosed systems can generate a causal-contribution ranking of the particular dimension values based on the determined causal contributions.

  • Patent number: 11797526
    Abstract: It may be desired to query a large record of events to retrieve certain segments of the data that provide information of interest. However, the data might not be structured such that it is conducive to generate/execute queries that inquire about net changes of events over time. Query language may also be interpreted differently by different analysts. In some embodiments data related to events is assembled into a data structure having a format logically equivalent to a double entry transition table. Each event may have two entries in the table: a first entry representing the event as a transition from a previous state to a current state, and a second entry representing the reverse transition of the first entry. In some embodiments, a query executor tool may be provided as a graphical user interface for entering information of interest to be queried.

  • Patent number: 11755605
    Abstract: A control module is adapted to control technical equipment by processing batch-run data from the technical equipment. The control module operates according to parameters that are obtained by a parameter module. The module receives a reference plurality of multi-variate reference time series with data values from sources that are related to the equipment. There are time series with measurement values and time series with data that describes particular manufacturing operations during a batch-run time interval. The module splits the time interval into phases by determining transitions between the particular manufacturing operations, and divides the time series into particular phase-specific partial series. For each phase separately, and for the phase-specific partial series in combination, the module differentiates phase-specific time series into relevant partial time series or non-relevant partial time series and set the parameters accordingly.

  • Patent number: 11755535
    Abstract: Techniques described herein relate to systems and methods of data storage, and more particularly to providing layering of file system functionality on an object interface. In certain embodiments, file system functionality may be layered on cloud object interfaces to provide cloud-based storage while allowing for functionality expected from a legacy applications. For instance, POSIX interfaces and semantics may be layered on cloud-based storage, while providing access to data in a manner consistent with file-based access with data organization in name hierarchies. Various embodiments also may provide for memory mapping of data so that memory map changes are reflected in persistent storage while ensuring consistency between memory map changes and writes. For example, by transforming a ZFS file system disk-based storage into ZFS cloud-based storage, the ZFS file system gains the elastic nature of cloud storage.

  • Patent number: 11734372
    Abstract: An online system receives a trip request including a location of the user requesting the trip. The online system identifies buildings or geographies based on the received location and determines location boundaries associated with the identified buildings or geographies. The online system identifies a set of hotspots representing locations that are frequently used for pickup or drop off. The online system additionally identifies a set of points of interest. The points of interest are, for example, businesses, landmarks, building names, or other visible information related to the location. The online system scores the set of points of interest based on a relative value of displaying the point of interest for orientation or navigation purposes. The online system modifies a user interface to display a map of the area including the identified location boundaries, hotspots, and one or more points of interest based on the scoring.
