  • Patent number: 11385822
    Abstract: Techniques for processing data involve: receiving a request for moving data from a first slice group in a first logical unit to a second logical unit; determining, based on the request, a second slice group from the second logical unit, the size of the second slice group being larger than or equal to the size of the first slice group; and moving data in the first slice group into the second slice group. Such techniques enable moving data into slices in a specified address range in a specified logical unit, moving data into appropriate slices in a target logical unit when data cannot be moved to slices in a specific address range because an address range is not specified or a specified address range is unavailable can be achieved, and moving disk extents (DEs) by a Redundant Array of Multi-Core Disks (MCR) and redistributing IOs between disk extents.

  • Patent number: 11321183
    Abstract: Certain embodiments disclosed herein reduce or eliminate a communication bottleneck at the storage manager by reducing communication with the storage manager while maintaining functionality of an information management system. In some implementations, a client obtains information for enabling a secondary storage job (e.g., a backup or restore) from a storage manager and stores the information (which may be referred to as job metadata) in a local cache. The client may then reuse the job metadata for multiple storage jobs reducing the frequency of communication with the storage manager. When a configuration of the information management system changes, or the availability of resources changes, the storage manager can push updates to the job metadata to the clients. Further, a client can periodically request updated job metadata from the storage manager ensuring that the client does not rely on out-of-date job metadata.

  • Patent number: 11263173
    Abstract: Certain embodiments disclosed herein reduce or eliminate a communication bottleneck at the storage manager by reducing communication with the storage manager while maintaining functionality of an information management system. In some implementations, operations performed as part of a backup process may be stored in transaction logs. These transaction logs may include information about a transaction performed between the client computing system and the network storage that hosts the backup of the client computing system. The transaction logs may be provided to a secondary storage system that can be used to form a backup index. The backup index may be used to facilitate accessing the data stored at the network storage. Advantageously, generating the transaction logs and separating the generation of the backup index from the backup process can reduce resource usage during performance of the backup and speed up the backup process while further reducing interaction with the storage manager.

  • Patent number: 11210253
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for tracking memory page accesses in a unified virtual memory system. An access tracking unit detects a memory page access generated by a first processor for accessing a memory page in a memory system of a second processor. The access tracking unit determines whether a cache memory includes an entry for the memory page. If so, then the access tracking unit increments an associated access counter. Otherwise, the access tracking unit attempts to find an unused entry in the cache memory that is available for allocation. If so, then the access tracking unit associates the second entry with the memory page, and sets an access counter associated with the second entry to an initial value. Otherwise, the access tracking unit selects a valid entry in the cache memory; clears an associated valid bit; associates the entry with the memory page; and initializes an associated access counter.

  • Patent number: 10901824
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to determining whether to take a resource distribution unit (RDU) of a datacenter offline when the RDU becomes faulty. RDUs in a cloud or datacenter supply a resource such as power, network connectivity, and the like to respective sets of hosts that provide computing resources to tenant units such as virtual machines (VMs). When an RDU becomes faulty some of the hosts that it supplies may continue to function and others may become unavailable for various reasons. This can make a decision of whether to take the RDU offline for repair difficult, since in some situations countervailing requirements of the datacenter may be at odds. To decide whether to take an RDU offline, the potential impact on availability of tenant VMs, unused capacity of the datacenter, a number or ratio of unavailable hosts on the RDU, and other factors may be considered to make a balanced decision.

  • Patent number: 10831561
    Abstract: A technique of operating a system is provided that processes data with one or more data processing modules provided in parallel. A synchronization token is input into at least one data processing module that is in an operational state from the one or more data processing modules provided in parallel, in response to a request to change allocation of the data. The allocation of the data is changed to the one or more data processing modules provided in parallel, after the synchronization token is input. In response to the synchronization token having arrived at a data processing module at a later stage, the at least one data processing module, that stopped the processing, starts processing data after the synchronization token is input to the at least one data processing module.

  • Patent number: 10802695
    Abstract: An augmented reality (AR) platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) is disclosed. The AR platform enables a user to associate AR objects with IoT devices. These associations may further enable a user to direct a control input to a particular IoT device and receive outputs such as sensor measurements or state information from the IoT device via interaction with an associated AR object. These AR objects may be perceived by the user via a client device, such as via an AR viewer or other human interface. The AR platform further enables users to create shareable objects that define an association among or between multiple AR objects and their IoT devices that can be shared with and modified by other users.
