  • Patent number: 11163631
    Abstract: A method, a computer system, and a computer program product for clustering operational parameter values in a micro-service architecture used in a computing infrastructure. The computer system measures a plurality of operational parameter values of elements of the computing infrastructure and logs identifiers for elements having caused a problem situation and related problem resolution times. The computer system clusters the operational parameter values of the elements having caused the problem situation, according to a correlation function. The computer system orders the operational parameter values within a cluster and the elements having caused the problem situation. The computer system periodically performs the clustering and the ordering such that a sequence of the operational parameter values and the elements having caused the problem situation is indicative of a resolution time required for a new problem situation.

  • Patent number: 11153166
    Abstract: A method for connecting graph processing cut endpoints is disclosed. The method comprises determining a first capability matrix comprising capability values, applying weights to the capability values of the first capability matrix resulting in a first weighted capability matrix, and determining a second capability matrix comprising, for each pairing of another side of the cut endpoint, capability values. For both, the first capability matrix and second capability matrix, the capability values relate at least to a platform, a runtime framework, a connection technology, a protocol for a connection of a node of the stream processing system. The method comprises further determining a joint weighted capability matrix for two corresponding cut endpoints of a cut by multiplying corresponding capability matrix values of the first weighted capability matrix and the second capability matrix, and selecting a preferred connection for the cut endpoints.

  • Patent number: 11093836
    Abstract: A method for detecting a bottleneck in a system includes receiving a graph, wherein a node represents a software module and an edge represents a communication channel between software modules, monitoring selected resources for each software module in comparison to available resources, monitoring a ratio of a bandwidth consumed on a communication channel versus available bandwidth, traversing the graph for identifying a source software module whose produced amount of output is below the amount of output needed by the software module that is in idle mode, and analyzing a resource consumption of the identified source software module to identify a lacking amount of resource for the identified source software module. A computer system and computer program product corresponding to the above method are also disclosed herein.

  • Patent number: 10740095
    Abstract: Assigning a given computer to a computer group of a set of computer groups. Software components installed on the given computer are scanned, resulting in a list of discovered software components of the given computer. In addition, for each computer group of the set of computer groups, a list of software components most frequently installed on the computers of the computer group is obtained. For each computer group, the list is compared with the list of discovered software components and, based on the comparison, a likelihood that the given computer belongs to the computer group is computed. In case only one of the likelihoods exceeds a threshold, the given computer is assigned to the respective computer group for which the likelihood exceeds the threshold.

  • Patent number: 10282699
    Abstract: An approach for updating of a repetition frequency of a system scan operation. The approach calculates values of asset management factors based on results of the asset management factors from a current and a previously performed system scan operation. Groups of the computer systems are treated as node equivalents, and the asset management factors are treated as synapse equivalents of the node equivalents. The approach also feeds values of the factors and weighing values as input for determining an update value for the repetition frequency as output. The weighing value is adaptable via the learning capability of the neural network equivalent. Finally, the repetition frequency is updated using the update value by an activation function.
