  • Publication number: 20200387436
    Abstract: A failure detection system detects a failure in a remote management system that performs remote management of image forming apparatuses. The failure detection system automatically executes a UI test that is a test for normality of the remote management system with respect to an operation through a web application serving as a user interface of the remote management system, and reports a failure in the remote management system depending on the result of the executed UI test.

  • Publication number: 20200387428
    Abstract: A remote management system includes a device management service having multiple instances that performs parallel distributed processing through the instances and a worker service having multiple instances that performs parallel distributed processing through the instances. Each instance of the device management service acquires the status of processing related to the recovery of the relevant instance from counter information, and stores the status of the processing related to the recovery of the relevant instance in the counter information when having performed the processing. Each instance of the worker service acquires the status of processing related to the recovery of an instance of the device management service from the counter information, and stores the status of the processing related to the recovery of the instance of the device management service in the counter information when having performed the processing.

  • Publication number: 20200389362
    Abstract: A monitoring system detects a deviation in a monitoring metric of a system component of a remote management system that remotely manages image forming apparatuses. When the monitoring system detects a deviation in online device count greater than or equal to a deviation threshold and makes a determination that there is a correlation between the deviations in monitoring metrics of multiple system components as detected, the monitoring system sends a failure report indicating that a failure is in the remote management system.

  • Publication number: 20200239749
    Abstract: A solvent-free acrylic resin composition includes an acrylic resin (A), wherein the acrylic resin (A) contains 5 wt. % to 60 wt. % of a structural moiety derived from a hydroxy group-containing monomer (a1), and an acid value in the resin composition is from 0.001 mgKOH/g to 0.3 mgKOH/g. The solvent-free acrylic resin composition is suppressed in viscosity rise due to heating, and is hence excellent in thermal stability; the composition can be thickly applied when used as an adhesive; and the composition can provide an adhesive excellent in step followability, corrosion resistance, and moist-heat haze resistance.

  • Patent number: 8326028
    Abstract: It is possible to compatibly set multiple “dropout” color ranges and “non-dropout” color ranges and uniquely determine a dropout boundary. An object of the present invention is to greatly conserve maintenance cost of adding a new dropout form after apparatus operations. A conventional technology aims at assuring relation to a predetermined color region, determining the presence or absence of contention, or uniquely settling a dropout boundary. The present invention provides a means for supplying levels to a “dropout” color range and a “non-dropout” color range. A registered color range histogram can be quasi-three-dimensionally visualized so that an operator can make adjustment by viewing a contention determination result and an image.

  • Patent number: 5717794
    Abstract: A document recognition system includes various recognitive steps for document recognition, and various correctional steps corresponding to the recognitive steps. The operation modes of the system are a "sequential mode" (sequential recognition operation) in which the respective recognitive steps are executed in "step by step" fashion, an "auto mode" (batch recognition operation) in which all the recognitive steps are collectively executed, and a "retry mode" (re-recognition operation) in which the execution of any of the correctional steps is automatically followed by the execution of a necessary one of the recognitive steps. In the "sequential mode", any of the recognitive steps having been executed can be shifted, not only to the correctional step corresponding to the executed recognitive step, but also to the correctional step preceding the execution.
