  • Publication number: 20210293658
    Abstract: A set of load responses of an asset for a sample of traffic loading events caused by objects of unknown weight is measured. At least one statistical parameter is determined from the set of load responses. A corresponding statistical parameter of known object weights loading the asset is determined. An object weight is assigned to a load response of the set of load responses based on correlation of the extracted statistical parameter to the corresponding statistical parameter.

  • Patent number: 11113247
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, methods, and computer readable mediums for implementing an I/O router to route requests based on characteristics of the requests. The I/O router may receive requests targeting a single file, and the I/O router may route requests to multiple extent maps based on characteristics of the requests. For example, requests of a first size may be mapped to a first extent map, requests of a second size may be mapped to a second extent map, requests of a third size may be mapped to a third extent map, and so on. Additionally, the system may utilize different deduplication policies for the different types of requests which are mapped to different extent maps.
