  • Publication number: 20200205733
    Abstract: A personal impact monitoring system is described herein comprising a monitoring station that receives impact events sent from personal impact monitors using a monitoring station receiver. The impact events which specify impact parameters associated with the impact events are stored in a data storage location associated with the monitoring station. Software operating on the operating station is configured to receive the impact events from the data storage location and to perform calculations based on the impact events to identify notable impact events.

  • Patent number: 5721917
    Abstract: An interactive, information logging and processing tool that provides information regarding a process's data structure utilization to reduce the working set of a process's dynamically allocated memory. The actual working set (AWS) determinant determines which portions of the dynamically-allocated pages, referred to as the process's virtual memory (VM) working set (VWS) are actually used. It then determines the actual working set of a dynamically allocated memory for a given benchmark. The basic approach of the AWS determinator is to observe which data structures cause page faults when the targeted process is severely thrashing. AWS determinator includes a data logger and a data analyzer.
