  • Patent number: 10387069
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing more efficient handling of I/O requests for clustered file system data subject to data migration or the like. For instance, exemplary systems can more quickly determine if certain files on primary storage represent actual file data or stub data for recalling file data from secondary storage. Certain embodiments utilize a driver cache on each cluster node to maintain a record of recently accessed files that represent regular files (as opposed to stubs). A dual-locking process, using both strict locking and relaxed locking, maintains consistency between driver caches on different nodes and the data of the underlying clustered file system, while providing improved access to the data by the different nodes. Moreover, a signaling process can be used, such as with zero-length files, for alerting drivers on different nodes that data migration is to be performed and/or that the driver caches should be flushed.

The data transformation system can also enhance older versions of data stored in the system or exclude portions of data from reports. The data transformation system can purge older versions of data so that older data that is less frequently requested is maintained at a lower frequency than recent data.

  • Patent number: 9032326
    Abstract: An enterprise management software system that provides a methodology for transient data storage, user action handling and dependent object creation process. When a dependent object is required to be added, the software system may remember the action without creating the dependent object. When a command is received to cancel the dependent object creation, the software system may work only on the transient data at a frontend and will not interact with backend. The dependent object may be instantiated when receiving a user command to save any entered data. Responsive to the user command, the software system may collect user input and trigger dependent object instantiation process at the backend.

  • Publication number: 20150120645
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided to provide a distributed transaction manager supporting repeatable read isolation level in Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) database systems without a centralized component. Before starting a transaction, a first node identifies a second node involved in the transaction, and requests from the second node a snapshot of current transactions at the second node. After receiving the snapshot from the second node, the first node combines into a reconciled snapshot the snapshot of transactions from the second node with current transactions at the first node. The first node then transmits the reconciled snapshot to the second node and starts the transaction using the reconciled snapshot. A branch transaction is then started at the second node in accordance with the reconciled snapshot. Upon ending the transaction and the branch transaction, the first node and the second node perform a two phase commit (2PC) protocol.

  • Patent number: 8996453
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to systems and methods for the distribution of data in a lattice-based database via placeholder nodes. A data store can store data in a lattice-based database or other three-dimensional hierarchical format. Higher-level data, such as yearly profit, may be desired to be spread from parent nodes at different levels or points in the lattice structure to lower nodes or locations, such as quarters. Parent nodes can be associated with a set of programmatic placeholder nodes. A spreading tool can insert child nodes representing quarters, months, or other insertion point(s) represented or encoded by a set of placeholder nodes, dividing, combining, or otherwise distributing quantities appropriately. In aspects, data can be spread from multiple parents and/or multiple target child nodes, at once. In aspects, the spreading tool can access or host sequence logic to ensure data spreading in an order that takes dependencies, formatting, or other factors into account.

  • Publication number: 20150088811
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for maintaining data persistently in one format, but making that data available to a database server in more than one format. For example, one of the formats in which the data is made available for query processing is based on the on-disk format, while another of the formats in which the data is made available for query processing is independent of the on-disk format. Data that is in the format that is independent of the disk format may be maintained exclusively in volatile memory to reduce the overhead associated with keeping the data in sync with the on-disk format copies of the data.

  • Publication number: 20150081623
    Abstract: Embodiments include an evaluator that can receive a query containing a predicate from an application executing on a client device. The evaluator can process the predicate using a tree structure containing nodes representing objects and edges representing relationships thereof. The processing can include applying filters to attributes of the relationships to identify a first set of objects relevant to the predicate and navigating along each incoming role of a relationship and from there via an outgoing role to other objects to identify a second set of objects relevant to the predicate. An object is relevant to the predicate if at least a value of a field of the object is equal or similar to a value of the predicate. Responsive to the query, the evaluator can return identifiers associated with a united set of the first set of objects and the second set of objects to the application.

  • Publication number: 20150081622
    Abstract: An item is determined to exist in a dataset by arranging the dataset into a plurality of subsets, each bounded by the minimum amount of memory that may be transferred between levels of memory in a memory configuration. The item and the subsets have attributes that allow for a determination of which subset the item would exist in if the item were in the dataset. A singular subset is transferred between levels of memory to determine whether the item exists in the transferred subset. If the item does not exist in the transferred subset, it is determined that the item does not exist in the dataset.
