  • Patent number: 10762086
    Abstract: Query execution status may be tracked to selectively route queries to resources for execution. The completion of queries executing at computing resources obtained from a pool of computing resources configured to execute queries may be detected. Instead of returning the computing resources to the pool, the computing resources may be identified as available in resource management data. When another query is received, the resource management data may be evaluated to select an available computing resource. The query may then be routed to the selected computing resource for execution.

  • Publication number: 20200233869
    Abstract: The configuration of computing resources for executing queries may be selected. A comparison of the configuration of computing resources that executed previous queries may be made to select the configuration of computing resources for a received query. A historical query execution model maybe applied, in some embodiments, to determine a resource configuration for computing resources to execute a query. The computing resources may be selected from available computing resources according to the determined resource configuration.

  • Publication number: 20200204623
    Abstract: A service provider may apply customer-selected or customer-defined auto-scaling policies to a cluster of resources (e.g., virtualized computing resource instances or storage resource instances in a MapReduce cluster). Different policies may be applied to different subsets of cluster resources (e.g., different instance groups containing nodes of different types or having different roles). Each policy may define an expression to be evaluated during execution of a distributed application, a scaling action to take if the expression evaluates true, and an amount by which capacity should be increased or decreased. The expression may be dependent on metrics emitted by the application, cluster, or resource instances by default, metrics defined by the client and emitted by the application, or metrics created through aggregation. Metric collection, aggregation and rules evaluation may be performed by a separate service or by cluster components. An API may support auto-scaling policy definition.

  • Publication number: 20180060132
    Abstract: Stateful resource pool management may be implemented for executing jobs. Metrics for pools of computing resources that are configured to execute jobs on behalf of network-based services may be collected. The metrics may be evaluated to detect a modification event for a pool of computing resources. The pool of computing resources may then be modified according to the detected modification event for the pool. Evaluation of metrics may be performed automatically as part of monitoring a resource pool, in some embodiments.

  • Publication number: 20180060133
    Abstract: Event-driven management may be implemented for resource pools. Pool management events may be detected at computing resources in a resource pool. Operations based on the pool management events may then be performed at the computing resources. In some embodiments, pool management events may trigger operations to a recycle a computing resource for reuse in a resource pool or perform other resource lifecycle operations.

  • Publication number: 20180060393
    Abstract: Queries may be received and executed by a managed query service. A query directed to data sets that are separately stored in a remote data store may be received. Computing resources to execute the query may be provisioned from a pool of computing resources that are configured to execute queries. The query may be routed to the provisioned computing resources to execute the query. Results may be obtained from the computing resource and provided to a submitter of the query.

  • Patent number: 9836841
    Abstract: A unit-dose medicament inspection system and method provide for the obtainment of an image of a receptacle after a corresponding filling operation in which a predetermined unit-dose medicament was to have been located in the receptacle. The image may be processed to extract image data that may be compared with stored data corresponding with a predetermined unit-dose medicament. Size, configuration and other features of objects located within a receptacle may be included with the extracted image data and compared with corresponding stored data to determine whether a given receptacle includes the intended medicament and/or whether the medicament located within the receptacle is an acceptable condition. Receptacle attributes may also be inspected for compliance with predetermined configuration parameters.
