  • Patent number: 11403525
    Abstract: Reinforcement learning is used to dynamically tune cache policy parameters. The current state of a workload on a cache is provided to a reinforcement learning process. The reinforcement learning process uses the cache workload characterization to select an action to be taken to adjust a value of one of multiple parameterized cache policies used to control operation of a cache. The adjusted value is applied to the cache for an upcoming time interval. At the end of the time interval, a reward associated with the action is determined, which may be computed by comparing the cache hit rate during the interval with a baseline hit rate. The process iterates until the end of an episode, at which point the parameters of the cache control policies are reset. The episode is used to train the reinforcement learning policy so that the reinforcement learning process converges to a trained state.

  • Patent number: 11379717
    Abstract: Traditional systems and methods have implemented hand-crafted feature extraction from varying length time series that results in complexity and requires domain knowledge. Building classification models requires large labeled data and is computationally expensive. Embodiments of the present disclosure implement learning models for classification tasks in multi-dimensional time series by performing feature extraction from entity's parameters via unsupervised encoder and build a non-temporal linear classifier model. A fixed-dimensional feature vector is outputted using a pre-trained unsupervised encoder, which acts as off-the shelf feature extractor. Extracted features are concatenated to learn a non-temporal linear classification model and weight is assigned to each extracted feature during learning which helps to determine relevant parameters for each class. Mapping from parameters to target class is considered while constraining the linear model to use only subset of large number of features.

  • Patent number: 11349906
    Abstract: A streaming data storage system facilitates appending of large events (e.g., up to one gigabyte) to a data segment of a streaming data storage system in a multipart upload operation. A micro-transaction data structure is created for a multipart upload of a large event, to which subparts of the multipart upload are appended during write operations. Order of the subparts is preserved, including when not appended in order, to provide for reading of the subparts in order. An event reference to the micro-transaction data structure is maintained in a data segment corresponding to the large event, and when the event reference encountered during reading, results in reading from the micro-transaction data structure when the multipart upload is complete. The reading from the micro-transaction data structure maintains the order of the large event's subparts, such that raw data is returned to an upstream reader application as the large event.
