  • Publication number: 20210067584
    Abstract: A system and method for offloading service cloud tasks to multifunction peripherals includes a service cloud that transmits an application to a multifunction peripheral. The multifunction peripheral receives the application into memory and executes the application. The application performs a management task associated with the multifunction peripheral similarly to how the service cloud would perform the management task. Once the management task has been performed, the application transmits synchronization data with the service cloud. Offloading the management task to the multifunctional peripheral substantially reduces the computational load on the service cloud.

  • Patent number: 10888920
    Abstract: A monitoring and control system is for a strand guide roll assembly of a continuous casting machine which includes a plurality of rolls spaced apart generally along a path of travel of a strand from an input end located adjacent to a mold to an output end. The system includes a plurality of sensors each coupled with a separate one of the rolls so as to be spaced apart generally along the travel path, each sensor senses magnitude of a load on the coupled roll. A logic circuit is coupled with each sensor so as to receive input from the sensors corresponding to load magnitude. The logic circuit is configured to determine from the sensor input a general position on the travel path at which the strand substantially solidifies, preferably by calculating a difference between loads on adjacent rolls and determining when the difference is less than a predetermined value.

  • Publication number: 20200379565
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to providing time feedback on an electronic device, and in particular to providing non-visual time feedback on the electronic device. Techniques for providing non-visual time feedback include detecting an input and, in response to detecting the input, initiating output of a first type of non-visual indication of a current time or a second type of non-visual indication of the current time based on the set of non-visual time output criteria met by the input. Techniques for providing non-visual time feedback also include, in response to detecting that a current time has reached a first predetermined time of a set of one or more predetermined times, outputting a first non-visual alert or a second non-visual alert based on a type of watch face that the electronic device is configured to display.

  • Patent number: 10785188
    Abstract: Disclosed is a domain filter capable of determining an n-gram distance between a seed domain and each of a plurality of candidate domains. The domain filter loads a seed domain n-gram for the seed domain and a candidate domain n-gram for each candidate domain in memory, compares the seed domain n-gram and the candidate domain n-gram to identify any identical grams, removes any identical grams from the seed domain n-gram, and determines how many grams are left in the seed domain n-gram, representing the n-gram distance between the seed domain and the candidate domain. The domain filter then compares n-gram distances thus determined with a predetermined threshold, eliminates any candidate domain having an n-gram distance from the seed domain that exceeds the predetermined threshold, and provides remaining candidate domains to a downstream computing facility such as a user interface or an analytical module operating in an enterprise computing environment.

  • Patent number: 10740270
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to a self-tune controller. For example, the self-tune controller may poll, via an out-of-band data stream, low-level operation information about a processor or a bus of a computing system under a present workload. At least some of the low-level operation information may be descriptive of a nature of traffic on the bus. The self-tune controller may program, via an out-of-band control signal, a setting of the computing system for the present workload based on the low-level operation information.

    Abstract: There is provided a signaling method for use in an advanced wireless communication network (100) that supports a first duplex mode, a second duplex mode different to the first duplex mode, and carrier aggregation of the first second duplex modes. This method includes configuring a UE (104-106) for data communication with the network (100) through a first access node (101) as a PCell, on the first duplex mode and with a first transmission mode (TM) including one or more transport blocks (TBs). This method also includes configuring the UE (104-106) for data communication with the network (100) through a second access node (103) as a SCell, on the second duplex mode and with a second TM including one or more TBs. The second TM associated with the second access node (103) is configured independently of the first TM associated with the first access node (101).

  • Patent number: 10691549
    Abstract: A storage controller receives a command to delete a dataset stored in a first set of storage volumes controlled by the storage controller. In response to receiving the command, a determination is made as to whether an indicator has been enabled to protect the dataset against an accidental deletion. In response to determining that the indicator has been enabled, the dataset is copied from the first set of storage volumes to a second set of storage volumes controlled by the storage controller. In response to completion of the copying of the dataset from the first set of storage volumes to the second set of storage volumes, the command to delete the dataset stored in the first set of storage volumes is executed.

  • Patent number: 10691700
    Abstract: A replicated storage system allocates tables to storage clusters to balance the usage of resources in the replicated storage system. The replicated storage system determines the query load of the stored tables and generates candidate table allocations based on the query loads. The candidate table allocations are generated based on table allocation criteria based on the popularity of the tables or whether the tables are related to other tables. The replicated storage system determines resource parameters for each candidate table allocation and generates a resource usage score for each candidate table allocation based on a utility function that is weighted based on priorities of the resources used by the replicated storage system. The replicated storage system selects a table allocation from the candidate table allocations based on the resource usage scores of the candidate table allocations and allocates table replicas to the storage clusters.
