  • Patent number: 10644971
    Abstract: In one aspect, a system for performing graph searches in an SQL style query for monitored data includes a processor; a memory; and one or more modules stored in the memory and executable by a processor to perform operations including: receive, by a controller in communication with agents installed at machines connected over a network, monitored data regarding applications running over the machines; identify performance issues from the received monitored data; provide an interactive user interface to enable creation of a query for the monitored data and the identified performance issues; receive input associated with a new query including a SELECT clause, a FROM clause, and a WHEREIN clause; create the new query based on the received input; convert at least a portion of the new query to contain a graph traversal path entirely within the FROM clause; execute the new query; and return a result.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10419553
    Abstract: In one aspect, a system for dynamically recycling a pool of Docker containers is disclosed. The system includes a processor; a memory; and one or more modules stored in the memory and executable by a processor to perform operations. The operations include operations to manage for multiple accounts, monitored data received from agents installed at machines connected over a network, wherein the managed monitored data are associated with applications running over the machines for the multiple accounts; generate a model to estimates a Docker container pool capacity that can service the multiple accounts; receive performance alert action requests associated with the managed monitored data for at least a subset of the multiple accounts; based on the model, dynamically allocate a number of Docker containers in the pool that satisfies the estimated capacity; and update the model by performing simulations that uses additional data of Docker container usage.
