  • Patent number: 11200083
    Abstract: Reconstituting a machine image separates constituent parts of a machine image, and for each part, determines whether an exact version of the part is available on the target machine. If an exact version of the part is not available on the target machine, an inexact part is looked for on the target machine. Whether an inexact part is found may be determined based on attribute policy specification and similarity computation. For the inexact part found on the target machine, any dependencies may be identified and processed as a part to be reconstituted for the machine image. If no exact part and no inexact part are found on the target machine, the part is transferred from a source machine to the target machine. A machine image is created based on parts.

  • Patent number: 10467036
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for dynamic metering adjustment for service management of a computing platform. For example, a plurality of virtual machines are provisioned across a plurality of computing nodes of a computing platform. Data samples are collected for a metric that is monitored with regard to resource utilization in the computing platform by the virtual machines. The data samples are initially collected at a predefined sampling frequency. The data samples collected over time for the metric are analyzed to determine an amount of deviation in values of the collected data samples. A new sampling frequency is determined for collecting data samples for the metric based on the determined amount of deviation. The new sampling frequency is applied to collect data samples for the metric, wherein the new sampling frequency is less than the predefined sampling frequency.

  • Patent number: 10372127
    Abstract: A drone-based system determines a user cohort for one or more users to assemble an object. The drone-based system assesses a task for the one or more users to assemble the object. Based on the determined user cohort and the assessed task, a drone of the drone-based system provides help to the one or more users as the one or more users assemble the object. The drone-based system may comprise a drone and one or more memories and computer readable code and one or more processors. The one or more processors, in response to execution of the computer readable code, cause the drone-based system to perform operations. The drone-based system may be only the drone or the drone and one or more servers.

  • Patent number: 10341467
    Abstract: Methods and systems for data transfer include adding a data chunks to a priority queue in an order based on utilization priority. A reducibility score for the data chunks is determined. A data reduction operation is performed on a data chunk having a highest reducibility in the priority queue using a processor if sufficient resources are available. The data chunk having the lowest reducibility score is moved from the priority queue to a transfer queue for transmission if the transfer queue is not full.

  • Patent number: 9921952
    Abstract: A computer executes a first version of a code module in a first test environment, collects a first set of execution measurements, and creates a first profile based on the first set of execution measurements. The computer executes the first version of the code module in a second test environment, collects a second set of execution measurements, and creates a second profile based on the second set of execution measurements. In response to a difference between the first profile and the second profile exceeding a threshold, the computer provides diagnostic data characterizing the difference, analyzes an impact of the difference on the execution of the code module, calculates a risk of code module failure value based on analyzing the impact of the difference, and provides a recommended action based on analyzing the impact of the difference and the calculated risk of code module failure value.

  • Publication number: 20180054352
    Abstract: A service catalog may be stored on a storage device and represent systems management tools with types, managed component types the systems management tools can manage, and dependencies associated with the systems management tools. A portal comprises a user interface receiving a request for a systems management tool from the service catalog. A configuration management database stores registered state of the systems management tools and the managed components managed by the systems management tools. An orchestration component is capable of coupling a computer-executable plugin to activate, deactivate, and run the systems management tool on a managed component.
