  • Patent number: 10986014
    Abstract: A monitoring system detects a deviation in a monitoring metric of a system component of a remote management system that remotely manages image forming apparatuses. When the monitoring system detects a deviation in online device count greater than or equal to a deviation threshold and makes a determination that there is a correlation between the deviations in monitoring metrics of multiple system components as detected, the monitoring system sends a failure report indicating that a failure is in the remote management system.

  • Publication number: 20200387428
    Abstract: A remote management system includes a device management service having multiple instances that performs parallel distributed processing through the instances and a worker service having multiple instances that performs parallel distributed processing through the instances. Each instance of the device management service acquires the status of processing related to the recovery of the relevant instance from counter information, and stores the status of the processing related to the recovery of the relevant instance in the counter information when having performed the processing. Each instance of the worker service acquires the status of processing related to the recovery of an instance of the device management service from the counter information, and stores the status of the processing related to the recovery of the instance of the device management service in the counter information when having performed the processing.

  • Publication number: 20170267124
    Abstract: A vehicle seat apparatus is configured to be mounted on a vehicle capable of traveling on a road. The vehicle seat apparatus includes a seat, an automatic driving unit, a seat drive, and a controller. The automatic driving unit performs automatic driving of the vehicle. The seat drive is configured to drive the seat to transition a position and attitude of the seat between a first mode and a second mode. The controller gives to the seat drive an instruction to transition the position and attitude of the seat from the first mode to the second mode when the controller recognizes that the vehicle travels in a particular section of the road, on a condition that the automatic driving unit performs the automatic driving.

  • Patent number: 9619395
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a main control circuit including a central arithmetic processor that executes first processing through a first program, a sub-control circuit that executes second processing independently of the first processing, a primary storage circuit, and a secondary storage circuit. The secondary storage circuit has a slower access speed than the primary storage circuit. The secondary storage circuit stores a second program used for third processing executed once the first processing and the second processing are both complete. The main control circuit further includes a cache memory having a faster access speed than the secondary storage circuit and a cache controller. In a situation in which the second processing is not yet complete at a completion time of the first processing, the cache controller executes pre-reading of the second program from the secondary storage circuit and stores the second program into the cache memory.

  • Patent number: 9361252
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first CPU, a second CPU, an auxiliary storage unit, and a controller. The auxiliary storage unit includes a first starting program for the first CPU and a second starting program for the second CPU. The first CPU loads the first starting program via the controller, and causes the controller to load the second starting program in DMA transfer. The controller, if the controller is caused by the first CPU to transfer part of the first starting program while the controller is loading the second starting program, stops loading the second starting program. When completing the transfer of the part of the first starting program, the controller restarts loading the second starting program.

  • Publication number: 20150212946
    Abstract: An information processor includes a CPU, a primary storage unit, a secondary storage unit, a cache memory, and a cache controller. The primary storage unit stores the at least one program and data. The data is used by at least one process generated by execution of the at least one program in the CPU. The secondary storage unit stores the at least one programs and the data. The secondary storage unit has a lower access speed than an access speed of the primary storage unit. The cache memory caches the data. The at least one process exchanges the data between the primary storage unit and the secondary storage unit. The cache controller controls the caching of the data based on caching necessity information, the caching necessity information being determined for each of the processes and indicating whether the caching of the data is necessary or not.
