    Abstract: A system and a method are disclosed that provides a data replication management technique for a distributed environment that eliminates a need to order members of a replica set. A node of a node cluster in the distributed system may be configured to send in parallel an IO request to each respective member of the replica set. Reponses are received from members of the replica set that indicate a completion status of the IO request at the replica set member sending the IO response. A request is sent to other nodes of the node cluster to remove a replica from the replica set based on an error response received from the replica. The replica that responded with the error response is removed from the replica set based on an agreement of nodes of the node cluster to remove the replica from the replica set.

  • Patent number: 11070504
    Abstract: Routing of communications to group member(s) where group membership is identified by physical status. A computing system detects a communication that identifies targets of the communication at least in part by physical status. The system responds by identifying at least partial membership in a group that is identified by the physical status identified in the communication, and then dispatching the communication to at least one member of the members of that group. The identity of the members of the group may change dynamically as the physical status of particular physical entities changes over time. Accordingly, a user may communicate to individuals based on physical status, rather than identify any particular individual or status group. The communication may be directed to all members of the group. Alternatively, the communication may be initially directed towards a subset of the group, with the communication being conditionally later broadened.

  • Patent number: 11068307
    Abstract: A set of computing nodes may receive a corresponding set of heartbeat messages that originated at the set of computing nodes. The set of heartbeat messages may relate to selecting, among the set of computing nodes, a leader computing node to process a set of jobs. State information included in the heartbeat messages may be provided to a leader election algorithm that outputs information indicating one or more computing nodes that are most qualified to process the set of jobs based on processing capabilities of the computing nodes and processing constraints associated with the set of jobs. The computing node may select itself as the leader computing node to process the set of jobs based on determining, from the information output by the leader election algorithm, that the computing node is most qualified to process the set of jobs and no other computing nodes are processing the set of jobs.

  • Patent number: 11071029
    Abstract: A communication device may establish a second wireless connection with an external device in a case where a first wireless connection is established with the external device, determine whether a predetermined signal is received from the external device, and determine a preservation time according to the determination. The preservation time may be a time for preserving a state of the communication device in a parent station state after the second wireless connection has been disconnected. In a case where it is determined that the predetermined signal is received, one of a first preservation time and a second preservation time which is longer than the first preservation time may be determined as the preservation time, and in a case where it is determined that the predetermined signal is not received, the other of the first preservation time and the second preservation time may be determined as the preservation time.

  • Patent number: 11061931
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, according to one embodiment, includes: receiving data replication operations from one or more compute nodes at a primary location, storing the received data replication operations in a queue, and dividing the queued data replication operations into a number of independent sub-groups. The number of independent sub-groups is equal to or less than a number of worker gateway nodes. Each of the independent sub-groups are further added to a respective one of the worker gateway nodes. One or more instructions are also sent to each of the worker gateway nodes to send the data replication operations included in the respective independent sub-group to a remote storage location. Other systems, methods, and computer program products are described in additional embodiments.

  • Patent number: 11063678
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a reception apparatus and a data processing method that ensure reliable reproduction of content. The reception apparatus receives content, and controls reproduction of the content on the basis of time correspondence information associating first time information provided from a transmission side of the content with second time information generated on a reception side of the content by a time axis according to the first time information corresponding to the second time information. The present technology can be applied to a television receiver compatible with ATSC 3.0, for example.
