  • Publication number: 20190303234
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the invention disclosed herein provide techniques for performing distributed anti-entropy repair procedures across a plurality of nodes in a distributed database network. A node included in a plurality of nodes within the distributed database network determines, before all other nodes included in the plurality of nodes, that a first anti-entropy repair procedure has ended. The node determines that a second anti-entropy repair procedure is ready to begin. The node generates a schedule for executing one or more operations associated with the second anti-entropy repair procedure. The node writes the schedule to a shared repair schedule data structure to initiate the second anti-entropy repair procedure across multiple nodes included in the plurality of nodes. Each of the nodes included in the plurality of nodes then performs a node repair based on the schedule.

  • Patent number: 10412469
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture are disclosed for determining media access sessions. In an example, an apparatus to determine media access sessions includes a record locator to access, in a data store, a first media impression record indicative of a first media access segment, and a second media impression record indicative of a second media access segment and a view counter. The view counter is to update at least one of the first or second media impression records in the data store, when the second media access segment occurs within a threshold time after the first media access segment, to indicate that the first and second media access segments are associated with a same first media access session.

  • Patent number: 10402216
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to live support integration in a virtual machine based development environment. According to one embodiment, a method generally includes obtaining, by a virtual machine in the virtual machine based development environment, a token from a secure location. In some embodiments, upon determining, that the token is authentic, the virtual machine determines system configuration information relating to the virtual machine. In certain embodiments, the virtual machine establishes a communication channel with a remote support device using the token. The establishing may comprise transmitting, by the virtual machine, the system configuration information to the remote support device and enabling two-way communication between the virtual machine and the remote support device.

  • Publication number: 20190266281
    Abstract: A system, computer program product, and method are provided to leverage a taxonomy service to format ground truth data. An artificial intelligence platform processes ground truth data, including identification of one or more applicable taxonomy tags. The identified tags are filtered and applied to the ground truth data, thereby constructing an output string that incorporates the ground truth data together with one or more of the identified tags, effectively transforming the ground truth data. Application of the transformed ground truth data is employed to accurately identify the source and/or meaning of the natural language, and in one embodiment, to product a physical action or transformation of a physical hardware device.

  • Patent number: 10379922
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to error recovery in a virtual machine-based development environment. An example method generally includes monitoring for an error event in a virtual machine managed within a development environment. The development environment attempts to recover the virtual machine from the error event by performing a first error remediation procedure on the virtual machine. Upon determining that the first error remediation procedure failed to recover the virtual machine from the error event, the development environment attempts to recover the virtual machine from the error event by performing a second error remediation procedure on the virtual machine. The second remediation procedure may be a procedure that is more severe than the first error remediation procedure.

  • Patent number: 10353729
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to managing service dependencies in a virtual machine-based development environment. An example method generally includes retrieving information identifying one or more service dependencies for a first service hosted by a virtual machine being instantiated in a development environment. For each service dependency of the one or more service dependencies, a service dependency manager identifies whether the service dependency is accessible by the first service in the development environment. Upon determining that the service dependency is not accessible by the first service in the development environment, the service dependency manager spawns an instance of the service dependency and connects the service dependency to the virtual machine hosting the first service. If the service dependency is accessible by the first service in the development environment, the service dependency manager connects the service dependency to the virtual machine hosting the first service.
