  • Publication number: 20130138903
    Abstract: In an aspect of the invention, a primary storage system (P system) manages write times of write data of one or more primary volumes (P volumes). The P system sequentially sends journals including write data of the P volumes and values indicating order of writing the write data of the P volumes to the secondary storage system (S system). The S system sequentially stores the write data in the journals from the P system to one or more secondary volumes (S volumes) according to the values. The S system sends identification information on the latest write data of the S volumes to the P system. The P system sends a management system information to indicate the latency between the write time of the data identified with the identification information and the write time of the latest data of the P volumes at the time of receipt of the identification information.

  • Patent number: 5748894
    Abstract: A cooperative information processing system in which a cooperative execution application program can utilize an auxiliary application program that is being executed locally. The communication control program has the request conversion unit, the input conversion unit and the server-dependent information table. The communication control program utilizes the server-dependent information table to interpret the format of an inter-application message between the sites and carries out a proper conversion. Thus, communication between the cooperative execution application program and the auxiliary application program locally executed at a specific site, such as for example, the Japanese inputting front end program, is made possible.

  • Patent number: 5353398
    Abstract: A group working system includes a plurality of work stations interconnected through a network and each having a multi-window function. Each work station is provided with a group working user interface program executed under the control of a control program for transferring control information for a group work with the other work stations. When input operation is performed for a window of a group working mode in any one of the work stations, indication information for identifying an operator or work station performing the input operation is output to an additional window which is paired with the above-mentioned window. By making reference to the indication information, each user can avoid conflict in the input operation to the same window of the group working mode with other users.
