  • Patent number: 12001430
    Abstract: A data engine request is received on a local data system. The data engine request includes a portion of the request that is to be processed on an external data engine system. The portion is forwarded to the external data engine system and statistics for accessing external objects of the external data engine system is acquired. The statistics are evaluated for compliance with a Service Level Goal (SLG) associated with the request. Rules-based processing permits optimization and planning of the request on the local data engine system to be modified in view of the statistics received from the external data engine system to comply with the SLG. In an embodiment, actual resource utilization metrics noted during execution of the portion on the external data engine system is provided as feedback to the local data engine system for re-planning and re-optimizing the request with a modified execution plan.

  • Patent number: 11932900
    Abstract: An example of an array includes a support, a cross-linked epoxy polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) resin film on a surface of the support, and a patterned hydrophobic polymer layer on the cross-linked epoxy POSS resin film. The patterned hydrophobic polymer layer defines exposed discrete areas of the cross-linked epoxy POSS resin film, and a polymer coating is attached to the exposed discrete areas. Another example of an array includes a support, a modified epoxy POSS resin film on a surface of the support, and a patterned hydrophobic polymer layer on the modified epoxy POSS resin film. The modified epoxy POSS resin film includes a polymer growth initiation site, and the patterned hydrophobic polymer layer defines exposed discrete areas of the modified epoxy POSS resin film. A polymer brush is attached to the polymer growth initiation site in the exposed discrete areas.

  • Patent number: 11677665
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and a transport manager system operate to reduce network congestion by detecting one or more data flows in a network, determining, using a candidate flow detection threshold, whether a data flow of the one or more data flows is a candidate flow, the candidate flow detection threshold being based on one or more characteristics of the one or more data flows, and in response to determining that the data flow is the candidate flow, managing the data flow. A consumption rate, a duration, a number of bytes communicated, a throughput, or aggregated characteristics of the one or more data flows may be used to determine the candidate flow detection threshold.

  • Patent number: 11665071
    Abstract: A Metrics Parser Coordinator (MPC) coordinates data sharing between components of a network. A process performed by the MPC may include receiving data from a plurality of input interfaces, parsing the data, filtering the parsed data, storing the filtered data in a metric storage, mapping the filtered data according to the input interfaces, and providing the filtered data stored in the metric storage to the first registered application. Each interface may be defined differently from each other interface, and the filtered data including information requested by a first registered application. The interfaces may include 3rd Generation Partnership Project interfaces, Long Term Evolution interfaces, and custom interfaces. The MPC may further allow applications to register to publish data, subscribe to data, or both.

  • Publication number: 20220356912
    Abstract: An improved pressure plate and clutch assembly allowing for use of a Bellevue (or diaphragm) spring and/or a series of coil springs in the clutch assembly. A Bellevue spring alone can be utilized with the pressure plate; a series of coil springs alone can be utilized with the pressure plate; or alternatively both a Bellevue spring and a series of coil springs can be utilized. The pressure plate has features that allow for either or both of the spring types to be utilized to bias the pressure plate. This allows for the selection of either spring type or both spring types. The pressure plate further preferably has features to allow for a spring or similar biasing mechanism to exert an opposing force to the Bellevue and/or series of coil springs.

  • Publication number: 20220169280
    Abstract: A method estimates a course of a roadway in a vicinity of a vehicle based on a state function describing the course of the roadway, wherein the state function includes a clothoid spline. The method includes providing ambient measured data describing the course of the roadway at a current position of the vehicle, where the ambient measured data includes a polynomial function. The method also includes transforming the state function and the ambient measured data into a common coordinate system, and checking the ambient measured data for an error. If no error is detected, then the state function is adapted based on the ambient measured data in the common coordinate system. If an error is detected, then the error is stored.
