  • Patent number: 10606665
    Abstract: Job execution can be scheduled and monitored. Execution of a job results in generation of one or more data slices, which can be consumed as input by one or more related jobs. Data slices can be presented in an interactive view. Selection of a data slice in the view can trigger automatic identification of related data slices based on dependencies between data slices. Each data slice can also include and be presented with a status indicating the availability of corresponding data, such as pending, ready, or failed. Furthermore, selection of a data slice that failed to generate successfully can trigger identification of related data slices that failed or are predicted to fail to generate successfully.

  • Patent number: 10540159
    Abstract: Model-based virtual system provisioning includes accessing a model of a workload to be installed on a virtual machine of a system as well as a model of the system. A workload refers to some computing that is to be performed, and includes an application to be executed to perform the computing, and optionally includes the operating system on which the application is to be installed. The workload model identifies a source of the application and operating system of the workload, as well as constraints of the workload, such as resources and/or other capabilities that the virtual machine(s) on which the workload is to be installed must have. An installation specification for the application is also generated, the installation specification being derived at least in part from the model of the workload and the model of the virtual system.

  • Patent number: 9684546
    Abstract: A view of data transformation jobs can be presented by way of a user interface. Related jobs can subsequently be identified automatically after a job is selected based on data dependencies between jobs. Execution status can also be determined and presented such that successful and failed execution of jobs, for example, can be differentiated. Furthermore, selection of a job run that failed to execute successfully can trigger identification of related jobs runs that failed or are predicted to fail to execute successfully.

  • Publication number: 20160117087
    Abstract: Jobs can be created within a visual authoring environment. A new job of a selected type can be added to a diagrammatic workspace. Subsequently, a mechanism configured to enable selection of a saved job that implements all or a portion of the job can be presented. After selection, a saved job can be acquired and the workspace updated based thereon. Furthermore, data sources associated with the saved job can be can be added to a data source designated portion of the environment.

  • Publication number: 20160117371
    Abstract: Jobs can be authored in conjunction with a visual workspace. Upon selection of representation of a data source in the workspace, a preview of the data source can be generated within context of the visual workspace. Further, representations of one or more data transformation operations can be provided with the preview. Selection of a transformation operation results in an updated preview reflecting application of the operation as well as generation of backend code to perform the operation. Furthermore, a job comprising one or more transformation operations can be added to the workspace automatically.

  • Patent number: 8489728
    Abstract: Model-based system monitoring includes accessing a model of a system that includes multiple components and executing a monitoring policy to monitor performance of the system. A notification of a problem is received from a first component. A determination is made regarding the cause of the problem. The determination is made, at least in part, based on the model of the system. At least one component associated with the cause of the problem is then identified.
