  • Publication number: 20210073161
    Abstract: Technologies for providing I/O channel abstraction for accelerator device kernels include an accelerator device comprising circuitry to obtain availability data indicative of an availability of one or more accelerator device kernels in a system, including one or more physical communication paths to each accelerator device kernel. The circuitry is also configured to determine whether to establish a logical communication path between a kernel of the present accelerator device and another accelerator device kernel and establish, in response to a determination to establish the logical communication path as a function of the obtained availability data, the logical communication path between the kernel of the present accelerator device and the other accelerator device kernel.

  • Patent number: 10678737
    Abstract: Technologies for providing dynamic communication path modification for accelerator device kernels include an accelerator device comprising circuitry to obtain initial availability data indicative of an availability of one or more accelerator device kernels in a system, including one or more physical communication paths to each accelerator device kernel. The circuitry is also to produce, as a function of the initial availability data, a connectivity matrix indicative of the physical communication paths and a logical communication path defined by one or more of the physical communication paths between a kernel of the present accelerator device and a target accelerator device kernel. Additionally, the circuitry is to obtain updated availability data indicative of a subsequent availability of each accelerator device kernel and update, as a function of the updated availability data, the connectivity matrix to modify the logical communication path.

  • Patent number: 5719919
    Abstract: A method of allowing independent call processing resources to work together in a call processing system by specifying conditions/action pairs. The technique arms specified resources to issue particular commands upon detection of the particular conditions. When the condition occurs, the armed resource issues the command and an acting resource acts upon the command. The application program no longer need be involved in mediating between resources.

  • Patent number: 5608791
    Abstract: A Group Exchange Port (GXP) is disclosed which provides an organized technique for passing control of live objects (e.g.; a telephone call, a robotic arm, flying aircraft, etc.) from a first application operating on and processing the object to a second such application. In accordance with the invention, a Group Exchange Port is provided where buyer applications register there willingness to accept control of the system and sellers may "advertise" an object for sale. When a suitable buyer (i.e.; one that has the proper resources for servicing and controlling the active system) is found, control of the object is passed from the seller to the buyer. Importantly, the GXP requires that control of the object always be maintained by one and only one application, that control not be passed to an application which cannot properly service and/or control the system, and that an application presently controlling the system does not relinquish such control until a new application accepts such control.
