  • Publication number: 20200210252
    Abstract: A bipartite workflow graph, representing an understanding of an overall service, comprises two different graph elements: entities and processes and each individual microservice defines their logical constructs as either an entity or a process in accordance with a universal schema. Notifications from such microservices conform to the universal schema, thereby enabling microservices to individually change how they operate internally, without affecting an understanding of the overall system as represented by the workflow graph. Each graph element has its state maintained by a separately addressable execution unit executing a state machine, which can be individually updated based on information received from the microservices. Changes to the workflow graph are logged and an insight engine monitors such a log to insert insight markers in accordance with predefined events, thereby enabling the collection of metrics on a service wide basis and across multiple microservices.

  • Patent number: 10633949
    Abstract: A diverter assembly includes a tubing segment and one or more sleeve members disposed therein. The tubing segment includes apertures that are selectively alignable with apertures of an inner sleeve disposed within the tubing segment. The tubing segment includes a series of stops (e.g., shear pins) to arrest movement of the first sleeve within the bore of the tubing segment. A first one or more ball seats are included in the first sleeve such that deployment of a first ball and pressurization of the well above the first ball causes a first set of shear pins to fail, thereby allowing the first sleeve to slide downhole to cause apertures of the sleeve to align with apertures of the tubing segment, thereby causing fluid to flow to an annulus between the tubing segment and wellbore wall.

  • Patent number: 10604988
    Abstract: Adaptable fenestration frame members, fenestration units using the frame members, and methods of adapting the fenestration frame members. The adaptable fenestration frame members provide a construction that is adaptable for use in both pocket and non-pocket installations by including an adaptation channel forming an outside corner along one edge of the fenestration frame member. Removal of the outside corner converts that portion of the frame member from an outside corner to an inside corner, thus adapting the frame member for use in a pocket installation.
