  • Publication number: 20220221811
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: a main casing; a photosensitive drum rotatable about an axis extending in a first direction; a developing cartridge; a transfer unit; a solvent cartridge accommodating solvent for dissolving toner; an applicator applying the solvent to the toner on a sheet; and a cover movable between an open position and a closed position. The developing cartridge and the solvent cartridge are detachably attachable to the main casing independently of each other. The developing cartridge and the solvent cartridge are positioned between the applicator and the cover in a second direction crossing the first direction, and the solvent cartridge is positioned closer to the applicator than the developing cartridge is to the applicator in a state where the developing cartridge and the solvent cartridge are attached to the main casing and the cover is at the closed position.

  • Patent number: 10248450
    Abstract: A virtual machine control device includes a processor configured to acquire usage information including an actual usage value of respective virtual machines operating on each of information processing apparatuses during each of past periods, and create, for each of the information processing apparatuses, prediction information including a prediction usage value of the respective virtual machines during each of periods. The processor is configured to determine, upon detecting a first virtual machine whose actual usage value is not included in the usage information, whether a first period exists, in which a sum of the actual usage value of the first virtual machine and prediction usage values of virtual machines operating on a first apparatus exceeds a criterion. The processor is configured to issue, upon determining that the first period exists, an instruction to move one of virtual machines operating on the first apparatus to a second apparatus before the first period.

  • Patent number: 9542217
    Abstract: A system that compares first information corresponding to an amount of a first type of resource used when a first virtual machine is executed in an idle state with second information corresponding to an amount of the first type of resource used when a second virtual machine is executed, and determines whether the second virtual machine is in the idle state based on the comparison.

  • Publication number: 20160350147
    Abstract: A control method includes acquiring result information including first timings and second timings, the first timings indicating time when each of a plurality of virtual machines started on an information processing device, and the second timings indicating time when each of the plurality of virtual machines ended, executing predictions regarding each of the plurality of virtual machines running on the information processing device, for each of periods, based on the result information, when a start of a new virtual machine on the information processing device is requested, determining for each of the periods whether the start of the new virtual machine is permitted based on a result of the predictions, by a processor, and when it is determined that the start is permitted, starting the new virtual machine on the information processing device.

  • Patent number: 9492842
    Abstract: Provided is: a cell culture membrane, which is free from materials derived from living organisms, can easily be industrially mass-produced, exhibits superior long-term storage properties and chemical resistance, has excellent cell adhesion properties and long-term culture properties and is capable of replicating a cell adhesion morphology that is similar to that of collagen derived from living organisms and being used for conventional cell cultivation. Also provided are a cell culture substrate, and a method for manufacturing the cell culture substrate. In the present invention, as a cell adhesion layer, a polymer membrane represented by formula (I) is formed on the base of a cell culture substrate so as to have a membrane thickness equal to or greater than 0.2 ?m (in the formula, R1 and R2 represent a —(CH2)n—NH2 moiety (n is an integer of 1-10 inclusive.) or H, with at least one of R1 and R2 being a —(CH2)n—NH2 moiety. Moreover, l and m are positive integers expressing polymerization degree).

  • Publication number: 20150370587
    Abstract: A computer is caused to execute a process including acquiring operating information relating to an operation situation within a predetermined period of a virtual machine operating on an information processing apparatus from a management machine that performs acquisition of the operating information and activation control of the virtual machine, and outputting, where a first period within which operating information of the virtual machine is not acquired is included in the predetermined period, operation actual results of the virtual machine within the first period based on operating information of the management machine within the first period and operating information of the virtual machine acquired at least at one of preceding and succeeding timings to the first period.

  • Patent number: 5862409
    Abstract: During monitoring of a buffer configured so that expansion of an extent c of a buffer capacity takes place when the size of an unused region is reduced to a required expansion threshold value b, execution of a required calculation using an expansion threshold value b and buffer capacity extent c and c' (where c' is an initial value) for each point of time occurs. The reference values s1 and s2 corresponding to buffer capacities c and c' for each time point are determined and those reference values are used as the basis for screen display of expansion changes to the extent of the buffer capacity, thereby ensuring that a content of a display occurs corresponding to expansion for the extent of a buffer capacity. In addition, the use of the calculation formula for reference value s1 or s2 can be selected, while it is also possible to use a reference value (a fixed value ) which has been defined by the user.
