  • Patent number: 11573621
    Abstract: A set of read operations and a set of write operations for a set of drives in a storage system during a first time window is monitored. A write intensity of a first drive in the set is calculated based on the monitoring. The first drive is classified as a candidate for power reduction based on the write intensity. A write-intensive extent is identified on the first drive based on the monitoring. The write extensive extent is migrated to a second drive in the set of drives, and power to the first drive is reduced.

  • Patent number: 11550788
    Abstract: Data investigations are performed by querying a plurality of data sources. A system receives an investigation input and queries a plurality of data sources in accordance with the received input. The system receives, in response to the querying, response data from the plurality of data sources, and generates and stores a data structure representing relationships between the first investigation input and the first response data. The data structure may be in the form of a knowledge graph. The system may generate and display a visualization of the data structure. The system may generate and store a record of investigation steps used to generate the data structure, such that the investigation steps may be applied in future instances, for example using different inputs, to generate new data structures.

  • Patent number: 11372723
    Abstract: An apparatus for dynamically adjusting a journal snapshot window is disclosed. A computer-implemented method and computer program product also perform the functions of the apparatus. According to an embodiment of the present invention, a failure detection module detects a potential failure of at least a portion of a non-volatile storage device. The non-volatile storage device includes a journal for tracking metadata changes for data that is stored on the non-volatile storage device prior to committing the metadata changes to metadata for the non-volatile storage device. A notification receiving module receives an indication of the potential failure of the non-volatile storage device. A snapshot module adjusts a snapshot window for the journal in response to the indication of the potential failure. The snapshot window includes a set of metadata changes in the journal that have not been committed to the metadata of the non-volatile storage device.

  • Publication number: 20210349705
    Abstract: A processor may identify a storage system having a cluster of multiple nodes with redundancy for sharing a load of host input/output (IO) operations. The processor may upgrade one or more nodes at a time making use of redundancy. The processor may collect performance statistics of the storage system with the upgraded nodes during active use of the host IO operations. The processor may compare the collected performance statistics with historical performance statistics for the storage system. If the upgraded nodes show a negative performance impact, the processor may take remedial action. Otherwise, the processor may continue to upgrade the remaining nodes.
