  • Patent number: 11144309
    Abstract: In example embodiments, techniques are provided to implement changeset conflict rebasing when performing conflict-detection and merging in an infrastructure modeling software architecture that uses an optimistic concurrency policy. Changeset conflict rebasing involves adjusting the pre-change values in a local changeset so they match post-change values of a remote version, rather an original base version, or removing changes from the local changeset entirely.

  • Patent number: 11140045
    Abstract: Technologies are described herein for changelog transformation and correlation in a multi-tenant cloud service. Components within the multi-tenant cloud service generate changelogs that describe changes made to hardware or software components within the multi-tenant cloud service. The changelogs are received and transformed from different schemas into a common schema. A central change management service (“CCMS”) exposes a network service application programming interface (“API”), or other type of interface, through which other network services can obtain the changelogs that have been transformed into the common schema. For example, services can obtain changelogs in order to correlate changes to anomalies or other events taking place in the multi-tenant cloud service, to identify upstream or downstream components that might be impacted by a change, to provide a user interface for viewing the changelogs, the correlation, or the potential impact of a change, and/or to perform other types of functions.

  • Patent number: 11010196
    Abstract: A capacity-analysis tool (CAT) provides a model framework for creating a model of a capacity-planning-target (CPT) system, e.g., a data center. The tool includes a model framework that, in turn, includes a closed-system template for creating CSMs, i.e., models of capacity-limited systems. A user uses the CAT to create CPT models using the CSMs as building blocks. A machine-learning engine is used to train the CPT model, converting parameter time-series data to functions of time. The trained CPT models are then used to make capacity-planning estimates, e.g., time remaining on a system before usage matches capacity. The CAT makes it easy to extend a model, e.g., by adding new dimensions (new factors of interest) in the form of new CSMs to which the new dimensions have been assigned.

  • Patent number: 10887416
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions which are executed by the at least one processor and configure the processor to implement a proxy server for hybrid geo-dispersed erasure coding (EC). Responsive to receiving from an application server a request to write an object, the proxy server in a first storage site splits the object into a plurality of EC slices. The proxy server stores a first EC slice in a first storage device via a storage server local to the proxy server. The proxy server stores a plurality of remaining EC slices in a cache storage local to the proxy server. Responsive to determining that network access is available to disperse the plurality of slices among a plurality of geographically distributed storage sites, the proxy server copies the plurality of remaining EC slices to the plurality of geographically distributed storage sites using geo-dispersed erasure coding.

  • Patent number: 10853223
    Abstract: Simulation processing is performed on a host apparatus in respective time periods to simulate operation of simulated agents of a target apparatus. During each time period, the simulation processing exclusively simulates operation of a single simulated agent. When the target program code processed in a current time period allocated for simulation of a given simulated agent includes a transaction start instruction representing a start of a transaction comprising instructions executed between the transaction start instruction and a transaction end instruction for which effects of the instructions of the transaction are to be committed when the transaction end instruction is reached in the absence of the transaction being aborted, it is detected whether the current time period ends before the transaction end instruction of the transaction is reached, and if so the transaction is aborted. This enables a correct transaction behaviour to be simulated without requiring memory conflict checking.

  • Patent number: 10803107
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods for synthesis of concept definitions and concept relationships from a domain of data, utilizing different semantic processing protocols such as formal concept analysis and faceted classification synthesis from existing domain concepts that have a confidence gradient built into them. A cognitive or an input agent provides an input of an active concept which is matched against existing domain concepts. The resultant pool of relevant domain concepts is then used to derive virtual concept definitions using a semantic processing protocol. The derivation is then overlaid with a concept of relative proximity of an attribute from another within an attribute set. An additional layer of coherence is given by the relative proximity measure. The end result is a pool of related virtual concept definitions in a tree structure.
