  • Publication number: 20190146800
    Abstract: One embodiment provides for a general-purpose graphics processing unit comprising a streaming multiprocessor having a single instruction, multiple thread (SIMT) architecture including hardware multithreading. The streaming multiprocessor comprises multiple processing blocks including multiple processing cores. The processing cores include independent integer and floating-point data paths that are configurable to concurrently execute multiple independent instructions. A memory is coupled with the multiple processing blocks.

  • Patent number: 9064126
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for delegating authority over licenses to use computer products in a disconnected network. In one example, a collector device receives a delegation of authority from a license manager device to manage entitlements for a plurality of computer products installed in a network infrastructure. The collector device receives an identifier from each computer product. The collector device receives a configuration state of each computer product, wherein each configuration state includes a set of features that are enabled on the first computer product. The collector device sends to the license manager device a report that includes each identifier and each configuration state.

  • Publication number: 20140379596
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for auditing and managing licenses for use of computer products. A license manager of a vendor receives an identifier of a computer product and a report of a set of licensed features enabled on the computer product. The license manager identifies a customer account associated with the identifier. The customer account includes a pool of entitlements acquired by the customer. The license manager compares the report with the entitlements in the pool, and with the customer's use of other computer products which draw entitlements from that pool, to generate a comparison result. An authorization decision of “in compliance” or “out of compliance” may be returned to the requesting computer product.
