  • Publication number: 20160314162
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods and systems for optimizing database transactions based on replicable differential data store data structure are provided. A write operation request, having a key for a write operation on a replicable differential store data structure, is accessed. An intent write lock on a differential state and a write lock on the key are acquired. The differential state comprises a result set of currently committing transactions. A transaction instance, of the write operation, is generated for a write set, the transaction instance comprising a modification to the key. The write-set comprises an uncommitted set of writes for in-flight transactions. A determination is made that the write operation is committed. A result of the transaction instance is persisted when the write operation is committed. It is contemplated that the differential state and a consolidated state can be merged, the consolidated state comprises a result set of previously committed transactions.

  • Publication number: 20160316003
    Abstract: In various implementations, methods and systems resource balancing in a distributed computing environment are provided. A client defined resource metric is received that represents a resource of nodes of the cloud computing platform. A placement plan for job instances of service applications is generated. The placement plan includes one or more movements that are executable to achieve a target placement of the job instances on the nodes. It is determined that the placement plan complies with placement rules. Each placement rule dictates whether a given job instance of the job instances is suitable for placement on a given node of the nodes. The placement plan is executed based on determining that the target placement of the job instances improves balance of resources across the nodes of the cloud computing platform based on the resource represented by the client defined resource metric.

  • Patent number: 9146794
    Abstract: Arbitrating node failures. A method includes determining at a first node that communication to a second node has been lost. The method further includes sending an arbitration request to a plurality of arbitrators. The method further includes receiving from the plurality of arbitrators a sufficient number of arbitration reply grant messages to have arbitration reply grant messages from a quorum of the arbitrators. As a result of receiving a sufficient number of arbitration reply grant messages to have arbitration reply grant messages from a quorum of the arbitrators, the method further includes declaring the second node down.

  • Patent number: 7453875
    Abstract: A sending computer system can identify one or more available network resources at one or more network computers by sending a request for services using Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) over User Datagram Protocol (UDP). In particular, the sending computer system prepares a SOAP message that includes a request for available resources. The sending computer system then encapsulates the SOAP message into a user datagram, and sends the user datagram to one or more identifiable computer systems on the network. In one implementation, the sending computer system sends the user datagram to a multi-cast Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). The receiving computer system receives the message through UDP, unpacks the message, and responds to the SOAP message request. Accordingly, the sending computer system can query multiple computer systems in an efficient manner without necessarily incurring the overhead otherwise associated with connection-oriented communication.

  • Publication number: 20060277458
    Abstract: Here is described an implementation of an object persister, which serializes an object to preserve the object's data structure and its current data. The serialized object is encoded using XML and inserted within a message. That message is transmitted to an entity over a network. Such a transmission is performed using standard Internet protocols, such as HTML. Upon receiving the serialed object, the receiving entity deserializes the object to use it. Rather than include copies of referenced objects within the serialized object, the object persister includes references to those objects. This avoids redundant inclusion of the same object and potentially infinite inclusion of the object itself that is being serialized.

  • Publication number: 20060235983
    Abstract: Using a message exchanger (“message exchanger”), data messages are exchanged between entities in a decentralized, distributed, potentially heterogeneous, network environment. The message exchanger employs XML (extensible Markup Language). To accomplish this, the entities on both ends of the message exchange understand, identify, and parse the message format. The message exchanger defines such a mechanism. Data messages are broken down into two portions—one portion (the body) is intended from an ultimate destination and the other portion (the header) is intended for intermediate destination and/or the ultimate destination. The body may be defined so that it must be understood by the ultimate destination. The header may be defined so that it must be understood or changed. Regardless, the data in the body is delivered intact to the ultimate destination. The message exchanger defines a message envelope exchange format in XML over a transport protocol, such as HTTP (HyperText Transport Protocol).

  • Publication number: 20050234873
    Abstract: A system and methods for service discovery and publication are disclosed. Application programs write requests for service discovery, publication, and subscription to a service discovery application programming interface. The service discovery application programming interface invokes one or more lower-level protocols to satisfy the discovery, publication and/or subscription request. Service information retrieved from lower-layer protocols is formatted into a consistent data model and returned to the client application. In addition, service information may be stored in a persistent data store managed by a discovery persistence service communicatively connected to the service discovery API.
