  • Publication number: 20220086060
    Abstract: Operational metrics of a distributed collection of servers in a cloud environment are analyzed by a service to intelligently machine learn which operational metric is highly correlated to incidents or failures in the cloud environment. To do so, metric values of the operational metrics are analyzed over time by the service to check whether the operation metrics exceed a particular metric threshold. If so, the service also checks whether such spikes in the operation metric above the metric thresholds occurred during known cloud incidents. Statistics are calculated reflecting the number of times the operational metrics spiked during times of cloud incidents and spiked during times without cloud incidents. Correlation scores based on these statistics are calculated and used to select the correlated operational metrics that are most correlated to cloud failures.

  • Publication number: 20210406029
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed to a programming language trigger mechanism. The trigger mechanism is a small piece of code that a software developer utilizes in a computer program. The trigger mechanism enables computing operations or tasks to be performed asynchronously and in a parallel fashion. In particular, logic (e.g., operations or tasks) associated with the trigger mechanism are provided to a plurality of resources for processing in parallel. Each resource asynchronously processes the task provided thereto and asynchronously provides the result. The results are asynchronously returned as an enumeration. The enumeration enables the software developer to enumerate through the returned elements as a simple stream of results as they are calculated.

  • Publication number: 20200264871
    Abstract: Methods for intelligent automatic merging of source control queue items are performed by systems and apparatuses. Project changes are submitted in build requests to a gated check-in build queue requiring successful builds to commit changes to a code repository according to source control. Multiple pending build requests in the build queue are intelligently and automatically merged into a single, pending merged request based on risk factor values associated with the build requests. For merged requests successfully built, files in the build requests are committed and the build requests are removed from the queue. Merged requests unsuccessfully built are divided into equal subsets based on updated risk factor values using information from the unsuccessful build. Successful builds of subsets allow for committing of files and removal from the build queue, while unsuccessful builds are further divided and processed until single build requests are processed to identify root cause errors.

  • Patent number: 10670373
    Abstract: A system trains usage of a firearm and includes an end unit, a processing subsystem, and a control subsystem remotely located from the end unit. The end unit includes an image sensor that is positioned against a target that has a bar code. The image sensor defines a field of view of a scene that includes the target, and the bar code stores encoded information that defines a target coverage zone. The system selectively operates in a first mode and a second mode according to input from the control subsystem. In the first mode the end unit scans the bar code to extract the target coverage zone. In the second mode the image sensor captures a series of images of the target coverage zone, and the processing subsystem analyzes regions of the captured series of images to determine a strike, by a projectile of the firearm, on the target.

  • Patent number: 10536482
    Abstract: Described technologies automatically detect computing system security attacks. Departure of occurrence distributions, which are based on leading digit(s) of digital item occurrence data, from model distributions that correspond to particular data sources, indicates a presence likelihood for particular attack types. Some model distributions exhibit Benford's Phenomenon. Described mechanisms detect security attack types such as ransomware, bitcoin mining, and others, using particular corresponding data sources such as file extensions, processor statistics, etc. Mechanisms detect security attacks without a captured baseline of healthy normal behavior, and without relying on malware code signatures. When an item occurrence distribution departs from a model distribution by at least a predefined degree, the technology electronically raises a security attack alert. Then countermeasures may be asserted for a possible type X security attack on the computing system.
