  • Patent number: 9405785
    Abstract: Various embodiments include a system for online propagation of data updates. The system can include: a computer system for storing a plurality of records; and a record update utility configured to: initiate a record update process for any of the records responsive to a modification of a trigger data item, wherein the process is performed while the system is online; create an update process timestamp indicating a time at which the record update process is begun; and determine if a last-modified timestamp associated with any of the records indicates an earlier time than the update process timestamp, and, if so: update the record to reflect the modification to the trigger data item, and modify the last-modified timestamp to reflect a time that is later than the update process timestamp.
