  • Publication number: 20160203338
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting device or carrier change conversions based on device information and carrier information that is received with requests to provide content to communication devices is provided. A system can receive requests to provide content including a device identifier, an account identifier identifying an account agnostic to the device, and a carrier identifier. The system can serve content items in response to the requests to provide content that are related to communication devices different from the device associated with the device identifier or carriers different from the carrier associated with the carrier identifier. The system can detect, from the contents of a subset of the requests to provide content, that the account identifier is associated with a different device identifier or carrier identifier and identify one or more content items corresponding to the different device identifier or carrier identifier.

  • Patent number: 9378276
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating navigation filters are provided. A target resource is parsed and occurrences of data entries representing archetypal headings and/or archetypal items for a navigation filter are identified in the content of the target resource. A path to each of the identified occurrences is determined and used to construct a query for additional navigation filter headings and/or navigation filter items that have the same path as an identified occurrence. Identified occurrences of archetypal data entries in the target resource and the additional content having the same path as an identified occurrence are used as potential navigation filter headings and/or potential navigation filter items. Navigation filters are generated by associating one or more of the potential navigation filter items with one of the potential navigation filter headings.

  • Publication number: 20160028587
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for identifying “free” compute nodes that have not been configured as a member of a secondary storage system. As disclosed, a node may automatically detect that it is a free node (i.e., one available to join a distributed computing cluster which provides the secondary storage system or to form a new cluster). When a node detects that it is not part of a cluster, the node may build an initial network configuration and begin advertising itself as a free node. Once the initial network state is available, the node may broadcast advertisements observed by a management tool and joined to the secondary storage system.

  • Patent number: 8949522
    Abstract: Systems, apparatusses, and methods are disclosed for improving performance of a stride-based prefetcher on an out-of-order central processing unit (CPU). The present disclosure teaches a processor system that employs out-of-order stride prefetch units. The out-of-order stride prefetch units are utilized for issuing prefetches for out-of-order stride access patterns. In one or more embodiments, the out-of-order stride prefetch units examine the offsets between past virtual address (VA) accesses and the directions of the past VA accesses in order to generate an estimate of the underlying VA access stride of the executed program code (PC). In at least one embodiment, the out-of-order stride prefetch units use the estimate of the VA access stride in order to generate a prediction of future VA accesses. In some embodiments, after the out-of-order stride prefetch units have generated the prediction of future VA accesses, the out-of-order stride prefetch units prefetch the predicted future VA accesses.
