  • Publication number: 20230409384
    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a computer program for managing computer jobs in a queue is provided. This comprises extracting metadata from a new job received for processing and upon determining when a similar enriched metadata exists in a database. A job score and storage footprint may then be determined for the new job from the extracted metadata. It is then determined whether the new job can be grouped for processing with any other jobs already placed on a queue. The new job is then added to the queue based on the new job's score and footprint, and whether it can be grouped with other jobs. The queue is then updated and sent to a scheduler for further processing.

  • Patent number: 11630839
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for merging multiple point-in-time copies into a merged point-in-time copy. A repository maintains a full copy of the source data and point-in-time copies at point-in-times of the source data. Each of the point-in-time copies have change information indicating changed data in the source data that changed between the point-in-time of the point-in-time copy and a subsequent point-in-time and changed point-in-time data comprising data in the source data as of the point-in-time of the point-in-time copy indicated in the change information as changed. At least two selected of the point-in-time copies in the repository are merged into a merged point-in-time copy by: forming merged change information in the merged point-in-time copy indicating changed data indicated in change information for the selected point-in-time copies; and forming merged changed data in the merged point-in-time copy from the changed data in the selected point-in-time copies.

  • Patent number: 11429578
    Abstract: A method includes generating a table in a relational database, the table comprising an empty column reserved for a custom tag. The column has a default column name. The method also includes, in response to an instruction to create the custom tag, generating a column mapping that maps a name of the custom tag to the column name. The column mapping is stored outside the relational database and is used by a parser to translate between the name of the custom tag and the column name.

  • Patent number: 11429674
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, method, and system for determining data to redact in an object. Event messages for objects are received. Each event message includes at least one facet, each facet for an instance of data in an object resulting from deep data inspection of the object that is used to determine whether the instance of data should be redacted. The event messages are added to a message queue. Information is added to a database for each of the event messages include the at least one facet for an object in the event message. The database is queried to determine an object having a facet for an instance of data that indicates the instance of data is to be redacted. The instance of data is redacted in the determined object having the facet that indicates the instance of data is to be redacted data.

  • Publication number: 20220150065
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for determining an encryption technique for a modified data object to backup. Deep data inspection is performed on an object using a natural language processing module to determine facets for the object. The facets provide facet values for instances of sensitive information in the object. The facet values for the object are processed to determine a cumulative facet value. A determination is made of an encryption technique comprising one of a plurality of different encryption techniques to use on the object based on the cumulative facet value. The determined encryption technique is used to encrypt the object to transfer to a backup storage.

  • Patent number: 11150994
    Abstract: Provided are a computer program product, system, and method for creating a restore copy from a copy of source data in a repository having source data at different point-in-times. All the source data as of an initial point-in-time is copied to a repository. In response to completing point-in-time copies following the initial point-in-time, change information is transmitted to the repository indicating changed data in the source data that changed between the point-in-time of the point-in-time copy and a subsequent point-in-time. For each point-in-time copy, copying changed source data comprising source data indicated in the change information for the point-in-time copy as changed to the repository. A restore request is received to restore the source data as of a restore point-in-time. The source data in the repository as of the restore point-in-time is copied from the repository to a restore copy.
