  • Patent number: 11449496
    Abstract: An example embodiment may involve a software application executable on computing devices of a remote network management platform and a computation instance associated with a managed network. The computational instance may contain a database storing data of the managed network. The software application may receive, from a client device of the managed network, a natural language query (NLQ), and retrieve Backus-Naur form (BNF) rules and a set of metadata associated with the BNF rules. The metadata may include a text-based description of a schema of the database and abbreviations associated with the BNF rules. The NLQ may be parsed using the BNF rules together with the metadata by applying the metadata during parsing to extend the BNF rules. A query object based on the parsed query may be generated, and the database searched using the query object. A result of the search may be transmitted to the client device.

  • Patent number: 11436500
    Abstract: A schema matching system processes training event data received from multiple sources to determine correspondence rules associating fields in the schemas of each source. To generate the correspondence rules, the schema matching system can use training event data from multiple sources comprising events associated with multiple schemas. Then, based on one or more similarity metrics between data entries of the training event data, the system matches individual events using a machine learning algorithm and, based on the pairs of matching events, corresponding schema fields across the multiple schemas. Based on the matching events and/or user feedback, the schema matching system can generate one or more correspondence rules based on the normalization rules and the corresponding fields of the schemas for later use by one or more transaction monitoring systems on incoming event data.

  • Patent number: 11423110
    Abstract: A computer implemented system for an intelligent timeline includes computer readable instructions to operate a timeline engine, a calendar engine, a performance evaluation engine, and a social networking engine that are interconnected to one another. The system may additionally include an advertisement placement engine. The timeline engine creates a timeline of events containing external events and/or an owner's actions. Each event has a timestamp such that the events may be arranged in the order of timestamps. In some embodiments, events may be automatically created if certain conditions are met. The calendar engine creates a calendar containing the events and other reminders. The performance evaluation engine creates performance evaluation results of an owner's actions based on the events. The timeline of an owner may be sold or shared on the owner's social networking channel to subscribers. Advertisement placement engine facilitates advertisement transactions related to the timelines.

  • Patent number: 11423081
    Abstract: A file access system for user defined functions (UDFs) can be implemented on a distributed database system. The system can store UDF signatures and interfaces (e.g., classes, sub-classes) that can be called by other users. Upon a UDF being called, one or more interface objects (e.g., InputStream) can be created and requests transferred to a execution node via a network channel. The execution node can implement multiple threads that are authorized and download file data from a staging location (e.g., internal stage, external stage) concurrently.

  • Patent number: 11409831
    Abstract: Logs representative of interactions by users or services with interfaces, such as clickstream logs, are generated by combining logs associated with cached data with logs associated with data generated in response to a request. When a first response to a request is generated and a portion of the response data is cached, a first log representative of interactions with the cached data is stored in association with a log identifier. When a second request is received at a subsequent time and the cached data is used to generate a second response, a second log representative of interactions with the response data will include the log identifier for the first log. In response to the log identifier, the first log is accessed and combined with the second log to form a third log representative of interactions with both the cached data and response data for the second response.

  • Patent number: 11386047
    Abstract: A technique for validating metadata includes creating log entries for virtualization structures pointed to by mapping pointers in a mapping tree and processing the log entries in multiple passes. A current pass validates a current level of redirection and creates new log entries to be processed during a next pass. The new log entries represent a next level of redirection, and as many next passes are processed in sequence as there are next levels of redirection.

  • Patent number: 11327999
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for reorganizing a partition-by-growth database with LOB columns. An example method includes creating a partition assignment table by performing a logical reorganization of the partition-by-growth database, wherein an assignment of at least one base table row and its corresponding LOB in the partition assignment table differs from a current assignment of the at least one base table row. The method also includes performing a base table reorganization based on the partition assignment table in parallel with a LOB auxiliary table reorganization based on the partition assignment table and a LOB dataset assignment table. The method may also include applying changes to the reorganized base tables and the reorganized LOB auxiliary tables using the partition assignment table.
