  • Patent number: 10392902
    Abstract: A technique facilitates the anchoring and use of a downhole tool. The technique may be utilized with operations in which fluid is pumped or otherwise flowed through a tubular to the downhole tool. The operations are performed after the downhole tool has been fixed relative to the wellbore and while the tubular remains connected to the downhole tool. In some operations, the downhole tool is manipulated from the surface via the tubular to control placement of the fluid flowing down through the tubular.

  • Patent number: 9946530
    Abstract: Provided are a method and system for upgrading firmware. The method includes: an upgrading control single board receives a firmware upgrading request from a master control single board, wherein the firmware upgrading request carries firmware upgrading parameter information; the upgrading control single board determines, according to the firmware upgrading parameter information, a sublink to be upgraded corresponding to the firmware upgrading parameter information; and the upgrading control single board acquires, from the master control single board, firmware upgrading data corresponding to the sublink to be upgraded, and upgrades, by adopting the firmware upgrading data, one or more pieces of firmware on the sublink to be upgraded. According to the solution, under a power-on state of a bare single board to be upgraded, remote firmware upgrading can be performed for the single board, so that the risk of influence of firmware upgrading operation on normal running of the system is lowered.

  • Patent number: 9841959
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for inter-procedural optimization (IPO). A new IPO architecture (referred to as “ThinLTO”) is designed to address the weaknesses and limitations of existing IPO approaches, such as traditional Link Time Optimization (LTO) and Lightweight Inter-Procedural Optimization (LIPO), and become a new link-time-optimization standard. With ThinLTO, demand-driven and summary-based fine grain importing maximizes the potential of Cross-Module Optimization (CMO), which enables as much useful CMO as possible ThinLTO also provides for global indexing, which enables fast function importing; parallelizes some performance-critical but expensive inter-procedural analyses and transformations; utilizes demand-driven, lazy importing of debug information that minimizes memory consumption for the debug build; and allows easy integration of third-party distributed build systems. In addition, ThinLTO may also be implemented using an IPO server, thereby removing the need for the serial step.
