  • Patent number: 11914978
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for code optimization. The methods include generating, based on a first macro of a user code, an assembly code corresponding to the user code. The first macro includes one or more parameters relating to one or more branch codes, and the assembly code includes assembly branch codes corresponding to the branch codes and jump codes corresponding to the assembly branch codes. The methods further include obtaining, based on a second macro of the user code, target information for identifying an execution condition of the one or more branch codes, and determining, based on the assembly code and the target information, a compiled user code. When being executed, the compiled user code may call, based on the target information, a procedure to determine a value of the execution condition. The procedure is configured to modify an execution flow of the compiled user code.

  • Patent number: 11914979
    Abstract: Software systems and methods convert algorithms and software codes into time affecting linear pathways (TALPs) via decomposition and convert paired Input/Output (I/O) datasets into TALPs via Value Complexity polynomials. Generated TALPs can be enhanced through merging with other TALPs. TALPs can be grouped by matching the outputs of the TALP-associated prediction polynomials with some set of given criteria into families and cross-families that are useful in a new type of software optimization that allows for output values of grouped TALPs to be modeled, pooled, discretized and optimized to enhance goals or meet user goals.

  • Patent number: 11907106
    Abstract: Software code is tested to determine relative performance of the software code. Successfully executing a test may be used to flag problems in a code repository to be corrected or criteria for accepting code for acceptance to the repository. To further evaluate test results, the test may be run several times on the same code version to determine a test result stability score describing how the test results may vary in different executions, such as a frequency that the code passes the test. Based on the score, additional tests may be run to further refine test result stability score. To evaluate time-variance of testing, when a code version fails a test, a previous version of the code may be run with the same test and the results compared to determine if a new regression was introduced.

  • Patent number: 11900102
    Abstract: Systems and methods for data storage device firmware updates in a composable infrastructure are described. Recomposition of a system in a composable infrastructure may include downloading a firmware update to a data storage device, activating the firmware update in the data storage device, and receiving a reset command at the data storage device. The reset command may include a step to flush a virtual-to-physical (V2P) mapping table from a volatile memory in the data storage device to non-volatile memory devices in the data storage device. Responsive to a flag that is set and the received reset command, the data storage device may forgo the step of flushing the V2P mapping table.

  • Patent number: 11899567
    Abstract: A system includes a memory programmed with multiple firmware images each having a distinct entry point, a processor, a writable hardware register initially seeded with an initial firmware image entry point address. A controller external to the processor, prior to an initial processor reset, reads the hardware register and causes the processor to begin fetching instructions at the initial firmware image entry point read from the hardware register. Prior to a subsequent reset, the external controller facilitates at least one transition to at least one of the multiple firmware images other than the initial firmware image by reading the entry point of the other firmware images from the hardware register and causing the processor to begin fetching instructions at the entry point of the other firmware images read from the hardware register.

  • Patent number: 11900089
    Abstract: A software operator can be automatically configured and deployed in a distributed computing environment from a package. For example, a system can receive a command specifying a package for deploying a target operator. In response to receiving the command, the system can automatically configure and deploy the target operator in a computing cluster. This may involve the system extracting a name for the target operator from the corresponding package and assigning an operator group to the target operator. The system can then subscribe the target operator to an operator management system by indicating the name and a namespace of the operator group to one or more application programming interfaces of the computing cluster. The system can also deploy an instance of the target operator in the namespace on the computing cluster.
