  • Patent number: 10783134
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to implement a polling process for monitoring a system of interdependent hardware components. A shared aggregate state data structure comprising information of an aggregate state of the interdependent hardware components is maintained in a system memory. A poller loop process generates and utilizes two local instances in system memory of the shared aggregate state data structure, including a current state data structure and a previous state data structure. The current state data structure is utilized during a lock-free polling routine to store current aggregate state data of the interdependent hardware components, while other executing threads outside the poller loop process can access the shared aggregate state data structure. The shared aggregate state data structure is updated by performing a merge of state information contained in the shared aggregate state, current aggregate state, and previous aggregate state data structures.

  • Patent number: 10747626
    Abstract: In a high insert throughput in a database system, the database management system (DBMS) caches, asynchronously from data insert transactions, a list of storage location identifiers for storage locations in a table space in the database system. When a request for an insert transaction with an insert size is received from an agent, the DBMS identifies a storage location on the list with an amount of free space meeting the insert size. The DBMS removes the storage location identifier from the list and returns the storage location identifier for the storage location. When the insert transaction completes, the DBMS determines a remaining free space at the storage location and adds the storage location identifier to the list according to the remaining free space. By removing storage location identifiers from the list, another agent cannot receive the same storage location identifier for a parallel task. Thus, space contention is avoided.

  • Patent number: 10572506
    Abstract: A system may be configured to implement two or more different types of data stores for data storage. For example, the system may include a small object data store and a large object data store. The system may compare the size of a data file to a predetermined threshold size. If the data file is smaller than the predetermined threshold size, the system may write the data to the small object data store. If the data is larger than the predetermined threshold size, the system may write an intent message to the small object data store referencing the data in the large object data store, and may write the data to the large object data store. The system may update the intent message in the small object data store to indicate that the data was successfully written.

  • Patent number: 10496844
    Abstract: A record management system stores records for an organization having a plurality of members and a plurality of groups, and manages accessibility of the records for the organization according to a specified record access policy. The record management system generates an accessibility database that indicates, for each member, records that are explicitly or implicitly accessible by each member such that the records accessible for each member can be quickly determined if needed. A member has explicit access to a record if there is an explicit indication of accessibility between the member and the record. A member has implicit access to a record through membership associations to other members or groups that have access to the record. The record management system also receives search queries from members and returns records that are relevant and accessible to the members based on the accessibility database.

  • Patent number: 10489425
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for user clustering on a cloud platform are described. A user associated with a client may implement a search function to query objects in a database system, and may select an entity (i.e., the clicked entity) from the search results. Each client may utilize the cloud platform in a specific manner, where users associated with the client may frequently search for certain types of objects. In some cases, one or more clients may share similar search histories or clicked entities. A clustering server may group clients with similar search histories or click distributions into common clusters. For future searches, the clustering server may utilize a machine learning model to predict the type of object being searched for based on the clustering. For example, user devices associated with a particular cluster may display similar groups and orders of object types in response to similar queries.
