  • Patent number: 10275281
    Abstract: Disclosed are some examples of systems, methods, apparatus and computer program products for scheduling jobs to process log files. In some implementations, a scheduler can be configured to identify a final state of a previously scheduled first job as a failure in execution by one or more processors. For instance, the first job may have been defined to process a first input log file saved to a database during a first timeframe of a sequence of timeframes of a designated interval. The scheduler can detect a second input log file saved to the database. The scheduler can then define a second job to process the first input log file and the second input log file and schedule the second job in association with a second timeframe of the sequence.

  • Publication number: 20190095260
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods and systems are provided for writing events to a data store. An application server generates events, the data store that stores the events, and a temporary events file storage system (TEFSS) temporarily stores groups of events as events files. When events are unable to be written directly to the data store, an indirect events writer is invoked that includes event capture threads each being configured to generate a particular events file, and write it to the TEFSS. Each events file includes a plurality of events flushed from an in-memory buffer service. An events file uploader service reads the events file(s) from the TEFSS, and then writes the events from each of the events files to the data store.

  • Patent number: 10185603
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods and systems are provided. The system includes a data store that is configured to store events in an event table, a temporary events file storage system (TEFSS), and a cluster of application servers. The cluster includes a first application server that generates events, and a second application server that includes an events file uploader service. When the first application server is unable to directly write events to the data store, an indirect events writer generates events file(s), and writes the events file(s) to the TEFSS. Each events file includes a plurality of events flushed from an in-memory buffer service at the first application server. When the events file uploader service determines that the first application server is inactive, it reads the events file(s) from the TEFSS, and writes the events from each of the events files to the data store.

  • Patent number: 10178156
    Abstract: A database system captures custom information of a header section associated with a logged interaction of a user. The database system may receive a hypertext transfer protocol (http) message including the header section and determine whether the header section includes a predetermined data pattern associated with the custom information added by a second application that is different than a first application which initiated the http message. The database system may extract the custom information from the header section in response to determining that the header section includes the predetermined data pattern. The custom information and event data extracted from the logged interaction of the user may be stored on the database system as a storage element.

  • Patent number: 10049131
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer-readable storage media for determining user access to custom metadata. In some implementations, a server receives a request by or on behalf of a first user of a computing environment for a first custom metadata entity. A custom metadata entity may be a metadata component customized for use in the computing environment and having an entity type specifying a class or a category of the metadata component. The server may identify an association record indicating that the first user has permission to access the requested custom metadata entity. In some implementations, the association records are stored in an association database accessible by the server, wherein each association record identifies a user and a custom metadata entity. The server may also provide data including the requested custom metadata entity to a computing device.

  • Publication number: 20170293632
    Abstract: A database system may determine that a database is unavailable to generate an identifier for an event or that events may not be written to the database. As a result, the database system may write the event to a low-latency, supplementary file system. The database system may determine that the database is available at a later time, and read the event from the supplementary file system, store the event in a memory component, and then delete the event from the supplementary file system. The database system may then access the database to generate an identifier for the event, write the event to the database, and then delete the event from the memory component.
