  • Patent number: 10747913
    Abstract: A centralized design engine receives a problem specification from an end-user and classifies that problem specification in a large database of previously received problem specifications. Upon identifying similar problem specifications in the large database, the design engine selects design strategies associated with those similar problem specifications. A given design strategy includes one or more optimization algorithms, one or more geometry kernels, and one or more analysis tools. The design engine executes an optimization algorithm to generate a set of parameters that reflect geometry. The design engine then executes a geometry kernel to generate geometry that reflects those parameters, and generates analysis results for each geometry. The optimization algorithms may then improve the generated geometries based on the analysis results in an iterative fashion. When suitable geometries are discovered, the design engine displays the geometries to the end-user, along with the analysis results.

  • Patent number: 10725528
    Abstract: Integrated circuits may include registers that store register states. Only a subset of the registers may store critical register states. The subset of registers may be specially demarcated, such as using synthesis directions in the hardware description, and may be coupled to dedicated extraction/loading circuitry. The extraction/loading circuitry may be implemented using soft or hard logic or can leverage existing programming or debugging circuitry on a programmable integrated circuit. The extraction/loading mechanism may also be implemented using multiplexers and associated control circuitry, scan chain circuitry, a memory-mapped interface, a tool-instantiated or user-instantiated finite state machine, or external memory interface logic. Accessing critical register states in this way can help improve efficiency with live migration events, debugging, retiming, and other integrated circuit operations.

    Abstract: A memory stores a first and second cache. A processor stores a first query in a transaction log. The processor selects information from the transaction log, uses it to determine that a user will likely access a first portion of the database at a future date, and copies that portion into the first cache prior to the date. The processor further copies a second, frequently accessed portion of the database into the second cache. The processor additionally determines that a portion of data is in both caches and deletes it from the second cache. The processor receives a second query from the user, determines that it is directed at data in the first cache and accesses that cache. The processor also determines that the second query is not directed at data in the first cache but is directed at data in the second cache, and accesses that cache.

  • Patent number: 10521028
    Abstract: Various implementations provide for a three-dimensional trackpad in which sensors and a three-dimensional physical region may be used to interact with a three-dimensional virtual environment. The methods, systems, techniques, and components described herein may facilitate interactions with virtual objects in a three-dimensional virtual environment in response to sensor input into a control device having one or more sensors implemented thereon. The control device may be coupled to a display that may be configured to display the three-dimensional virtual environment. In various implementations, the sensor(s) capture physical movement of a user interaction element (a hand, a stylus, a physical object, etc.) within a specified three-dimensional physical region. The physical movement may be translated into a virtual interaction with the three-dimensional virtual environment. A virtual action in the three-dimensional virtual environment may be identified and displayed.

  • Patent number: 10505866
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and other embodiments associated with recommending hosting platforms for user workload execution are described. In one embodiment, a method includes replicating a user workload to generate a test workload. The example method may also include collecting execution statistics of the user workload executing on a first hosting platform and the test workload executing on a second hosting platform. The example method may also include comparing the execution statistics with first features of the first hosting platform and second features of the second hosting platform. In response to the execution statistics matching the second features to a greater degree than the first features, a recommendation is generated to execute the user workload on the second hosting platform. The example method may also include transmitting the recommendation over a computer network to a remote computer for display to a user on a display of the remote computer.

  • Patent number: 10474381
    Abstract: A system includes a network interface, a processing device, and a memory device. The memory device stores instructions for accessing a first log file of a first format type from a first server and converting the first log file to a first record in a shared data-interchange format. A second log file of a second format type is accessed from a second server. The second log file is converted to a second record in the shared data-interchange format, and instances of the first and second record are collected over a period of time. A resource allocation of the first server and the second server is analyzed based on the instances of the first record and the second record. A resource allocation adjustment request is transmitted to one or more of the server systems based on a predicted trend of the resource allocation of the first and second server.

    Abstract: A first resource and a second resource are identified from configuration data of a computing environment. A model that represents the first resource associated with a first weight, the second resource associated with a second weight, and a communication path between the first resource and the second resource is generated. As a result of receiving a command to perform against the first resource, a determination that the second resource would be impacted by performance of the command is made based at least in part on the communication path, a score that represents an impact of the command in the computing environment is calculated based at least in part on the first weight and the second weight, and an action determined based at least in part on the score is performed.

  • Patent number: 10430312
    Abstract: A method and a device for determining a program performance interference model is described. The method includes: selecting programs from a determined sample program set to form multiple subsets; acquiring a value of performance interference imposed on each program in each subset and a total occupancy rate of a shared resource occupied by all the programs in each subset; dividing all the subsets into multiple analytical units; performing a regression analysis on the value of performance interference on each sample program included in each analytical unit and a total occupancy rate corresponding to a subset in which the sample program is loaded, and acquiring a target function model; acquiring a performance interference model corresponding to a target program according to the target function model. The performance interference model may be used for preventing another program whose mutual interference is relatively strong from running together with the target program.
