  • Patent number: 12007830
    Abstract: Automated, computer-implemented methods and systems for resolving performance problems with objects executing in a data center are described. The automated methods use machine learning to train a model that comprises rules defining relationships between probabilities of event types of in log messages and values of a key performance indictor (“KPI”) of the object over a historical time period. When a KPI violates a corresponding threshold, the rules are used to evaluate run time log messages that describe the probable root cause of the performance problem. An alert identifying the KPI threshold violation, and the log messages are displayed in a graphical user interface of an electronic display device.

  • Patent number: 11983080
    Abstract: Systems and methods that make use of cluster-level redundancy within a distributed storage management system to address various node-level error scenarios are provided. Rather than making use of a generalized one-size-fits-all approach in an effort to reduce complexity, an approach tailored to the node-level error scenario at issue may be performed to avoid doing more than necessary. According to one embodiment, responsive to identification of a failed RAID stripe by a node of a cluster of a distributed storage management system, for each block ID of multiple block IDs associated with the failed RAID stripe, a data block is restored corresponding to the block ID by reading the data block from another node of the cluster having a redundant copy of the data block; and writing the redundant copy of the data block to a storage area of the node that is unaffected by the failed RAID stripe.

  • Patent number: 11868637
    Abstract: In a storage system that implements RAID (D+P) protection groups a drive subset initially has (D+P) drives plus a spare drive with (D+P) splits. Spare splits are distributed with drive index and split index adjacency such that no single drive or split index contains multiple spare splits. When the drive subset is incremented by one drive a group of selected splits are relocated to the new drive based on drive index and split index adjacency such that no single drive or split index contains multiple members of a new protection group. If one of the drives is failing or fails, then an adjusted spare split index value is calculated for each protection group member on that drive so that the protection group members are rebuilt or relocated without placing more than one member of any protection group on a single drive. Adjusted spare split index values may be calculated in steps using the data split indices in ascending order and the largest drive indices in descending order.
