  • Publication number: 20060069665
    Abstract: Disclosed is a file access service system including at least one client, a plurality of file servers each having a function for limiting amount of use of a respective storage resource, and a switch apparatus inserted between the client and the plurality of file servers. The switch apparatus, based upon a set value of amount of use of a storage resource that has been set in the switch apparatus, sets a set value that limits amount of use of each storage resource in a respective one of the file servers. The switch apparatus surveys amount of use of each storage resource periodically in each of the file servers and, based upon the result of the survey controls the set value of the amount of use of each storage resource in each of the file servers.

  • Patent number: 6699061
    Abstract: The base plate 31 of the connector housing is provided with the raised portion 50 that fits into one of the recessed portions 26 in the card 20 for the contact pads 27 when the card 20 is inserted. The raised portion 50 is made to function as a stopper to block the card from being inserted further when the card is wrongly inserted back to front, thereby preventing a possible deformation of the contact terminals on the connector side in the event that the card is wrongly inserted.

  • Publication number: 20030097454
    Abstract: A switch device has an object ID rewrite unit and a file access control unit. The object ID rewrite unit, when an original object ID is contained in a reply to be transferred, rewrites the original object ID to an information entraining object ID by inserting server identification information into the original object ID, while when the information entraining object ID is contained in a reply to be transferred, restores the information entraining object ID to the original object ID. The file access control unit includes a table for managing a combination of address information of a server and server identification information, estimating address information of a server corresponding to sever identification information contained in an information entraining object of a request to be transferred with reference to the table, and determines a destination of the request on the basis of the address information.

  • Patent number: 5646799
    Abstract: A cassette loading apparatus for a cassette tape recorder includes a solenoid unit for controlling various operating conditions of the cassette tape recorder. The solenoid unit is connected with an eject rod through a connecting member and is engageable with a cassette holder and a slide plate carried by the cassette holder. The position of the eject rod is controlled according to the position of the cassette holder between an open position (a cassette eject position) and a closed position (a tape play position) so that when the cassette holder is in the open position, an attracting operation of the solenoid unit is inhibited, but when the cassette holder is in the closed position the attracting operation of the solenoid is enabled.

  • Patent number: 4108777
    Abstract: A filter press having a plurality of filter plates so supported between fixed and movable heads of the machine framework that the filter plates can selectively be separated from each other and compressed together to a substantially watertight closure between the fixed and movable heads. A filter medium is provided for each filter plate and is composed of a pair of filter webs covering respectively the opposed filtering surfaces of the filter plate. The filter webs are connected at their one end to a winding device and at their other end to a tensioning and winding roll assembly after having turned around a pair of juxtaposed guide rolls. Each tensioning and winding roll assembly is composed of a cylindrical roll and a biasing element for biasing the cylindrical roll in one direction with the filter webs forced to be wound therearound.
