  • Publication number: 20210223977
    Abstract: A storage-based migration is performed in a VVOL environment. A migration processing unit generates a migration group in which a virtual volume to be migrated, a protocol endpoint related to the virtual volume, and a storage container that cuts out the virtual volume are grouped, and migrates the migration group to a storage node; and a configuration changing unit configures, based on information of the migration group transmitted from the storage node, a protocol endpoint, a virtual volume, and a storage container on a storage node which are the same as the protocol endpoint, the virtual volume, and the storage container configured on the storage node.

  • Patent number: 11012843
    Abstract: A communication device may include a first type of interface and a second type of interface. The communication device may execute the communication of object data with a mobile device using the second type of interface after executing a specific process for causing the communication device to shift to a communication-enabled state, in a case where it is determined that the communication device is not currently in the communication-enabled state. Also, the communication device may execute the communication of the object data with the mobile device using the second type of interface without executing the specific process, in a case where it is determined that the communication device is currently in the communication-enabled state.

  • Patent number: 10990468
    Abstract: A computing system that can maintain reliability required of a storage program while causing the storage program to operate on an operating system (OS) is provided. A processor of the computing system executes an OS controlling a hardware device and a storage program operating on the OS and using the hardware device via the OS. The OS identifies an error status of the hardware device when receiving a notification of an error that has occurred to the hardware device, and notifies the storage program that operates on the OS of the error status when the error status satisfies a predetermined condition. The storage program determines error handling on the hardware device on the basis of the error status, and requests the OS to perform the determined error handling. The OS performs the determined error handling on the hardware device.

After receiving the first target data, the MFP disconnects the first communication link. The MFP establishes a second communication link by receiving the activation command and sending the OK command. The MFP sends the second target data to the portable device by using the second communication link.

  • Publication number: 20210072939
    Abstract: A function executing device is configured to send a wireless identifier to a communication device via a first type of wireless communication interface for setting up a wireless connection. The function executing device is configured to determine whether the function executing device is in an error state and, if not, to establish the wireless connection via a second type of wireless communication interface. The function executing device operates in a parent state in the wireless connection. Additionally, print data may be received from the communication device. However, if the function executing device is in an error state the wireless connection is not established via the second type of wireless communication interface.

  • Patent number: 10884924
    Abstract: A storage system receives a write request which specifies a logical volume address associated with a RAID group, and makes a first determination whether write target data in accordance with the write request exists in a cache memory. When the first determination result is negative, the storage system makes a second determination whether at least one of one or more conditions is met, the condition being that random write throughput performance is expected to increase by asynchronous de-staging processing of storing the write target data in the RAID group asynchronously to write processing performed in response to the write request. When the second determination result is negative, the storage system selects, for the write request, synchronous storage processing, which is processing of storing the write target data in the RAID group in the write processing and for which a load on a processor is lower than the asynchronous de-staging processing.

  • Patent number: 10740088
    Abstract: The computer system executes environment classification of classifying a plurality of subsystems, each being a physical or virtual computer system, into one or more environment groups being one or more groups. The computer system stores classification result data which is data representing a relationship between the environment group and the subsystems belonging to the environment group. The computer system selects, from the classification result data, the environment group to which the subsystem having undergone a problem belongs. The computer system generates a reproduction subsystem which is a virtual subsystem virtually reproducing the subsystem for each of the subsystems belonging to the selected classification result group. The computer system applies the countermeasure to at least one reproduction subsystem for the purpose of verifying the countermeasure for the problem.

  • Patent number: 10740040
    Abstract: The computer system executes a storage program that operates on an OS to provide a logical volume to a host. The computer system includes volume management information including information on a storage function to be applied to the logical volume provided by the storage program. Upon receiving an I/O request for the logical volume from the host, the OS determines whether it is necessary for the storage program to perform an I/O process on the basis of the information on the storage function to be applied to the logical volume by referring to the volume management information. When it is determined that the I/O process is necessary, the OS communicates with the storage program and the storage program executes the I/O process. When it is determined that it is not necessary for the storage program to perform the I/O process, the OS outputs an I/O response to the host.
