  • Patent number: 9875142
    Abstract: A system and method schedules jobs in a cluster of compute nodes. A job with an unknown resource requirement profile is received. The job includes a plurality of tasks. Execution of some of the plurality of tasks is scheduled on compute nodes of the cluster with differing capability profiles. Timing information regarding execution time of the scheduled tasks is received. A resource requirement profile for the job is inferred based on the received timing information and the differing capability profiles. Execution of remaining tasks of the job is scheduled on the compute nodes of the cluster using the resource requirement profile.

  • Patent number: 9846881
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a system for providing assistance to a user of a product in diagnosing faults in the product. During operation, the system receives, at a help server, data associated with current and/or past operation of the product; performs an optimization to determine a sequence of diagnostic actions that is expected to maximize a net benefit to the user. The sequence of diagnostic actions includes one or more actions that require the user to perform at least one task, and performing the optimization involves accounting for costs to the user for performing the at least one task and savings to the user for correcting the faults. The system then interacts with the user, which involves presenting the sequence of diagnostic actions to the user.
