  • Patent number: 11510105
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for UPF control with coexistence of policy control and packet filters dynamically generated at the SMF. For example, if the SMF obtains an event subscription with traffic descriptors from another entity, and if there is no installed PDR with the same traffic descriptor, the SMF may construct a PDR with an action according to the subscribed event. The SMF may configure the UPF with the constructed PDR. In certain embodiments, to construct the PDR, the SMF may copy the PDR that would have previously matched the incoming traffic described by the traffic descriptor in the notification subscription, and associates the PDR with a higher priority, the traffic descriptor and a notification action according to the subscribed event. To configure the UPF, the SMF may provide the PDR with the higher priority, the received traffic descriptor, and the notification action, according to some embodiments.

  • Patent number: 10891267
    Abstract: System and methods for managing versions of partition maps in a distributed data store are disclosed. A relational database may use partition maps to indicate the location of data in a particular partition, or in a replica thereof. These partition maps may be versioned using a two-stage mechanism in which partition map updates are communicated to all nodes, or to affected nodes only, and in which operation may continue without waiting for acknowledgment of their application to each node. The system may handle minor partition changes differently than major partition changes. For example, if a replica of a partition is promoted to be a primary copy due to hardware or network failures, partition map changes may only be propagated to nodes in the same replica group. For major partition changes (e.g., splits, moves, mergers, added partitions, or size change), a new partition map may be made available to all nodes.

  • Patent number: 10782972
    Abstract: An apparatus comprises processing circuitry (4) and an instruction decoder (6) which supports vector instructions for which multiple lanes of processing are performed on respective data elements of a vector value. In response to a vector predication instruction, the instruction decoder (6) controls the processing circuitry (4) to set control information based on the outcome of a number of element comparison operations each for determining whether a corresponding element passes or fails a test condition. The control information controls processing of a predetermined number of subsequent vector instructions after the vector predication instruction. The predetermined number is hard-wired or identified by the vector predication instruction. For one of the subsequent vector instructions, an operation for a given portion of a given lane of vector processing is masked based on the outcome indicated by the control information for a corresponding data element.

  • Patent number: 10713276
    Abstract: A massively parallel database management system includes an index store and a payload store including a set of storage systems of different temperatures. Both the stores each include a list of clusters. Each cluster includes a set of nodes with storage devices forming a group of segments. Nodes and clusters are connected over high speed links. The list of clusters within the payload store includes clusters of different temperatures. The payload store transitions data of a segment group from a higher temperature to a segment group in a lower temperature cluster in parallel. A node moves data of a segment in the higher temperature cluster to a corresponding node's segment in the lower temperature cluster. Once the data is written in the destination segment in the lower temperature cluster, the source segment is freed to store other data. The temperatures include blazing, hot, warm and cold.

  • Patent number: 10628056
    Abstract: A permission setting register stores therein information indicating whether or not access is to be permitted to each node, per segment of a shared memory. When an abnormality occurs in a node, a permission canceling unit sets, for a segment that the abnormal node has been using, information in the permission setting register, the information corresponding to the abnormal node, to not permit access. When there is an access request from a remote node to a shared memory segment, a checking unit determines, with hardware, whether or not the access is permitted, based on the permission setting register, an access token included in the access request, and a memory token register.
