  • Patent number: 11314714
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for implementing a unified partitioning scheme within distributed database systems to allow a table to be horizontally partitioned and those partitions stored on and serviced by a storage group. A storage group is a subset of storage manager (SM) nodes, and each SM node is configured to persist database data in durable storage. The distributed database system assigns each storage group to a subset of SM nodes. The distributed database system can address each storage group using a symbolic mapping that allows transactions to identify a particular storage group, and to direct read and write operations to a subset of SM nodes servicing that storage group. An administrator can update this mapping on-the-fly to cause the distributed database system to dynamically adjust an implemented partitioning scheme without necessarily interrupting on-going database operations.

    Abstract: Data is obtained from a data stream managed by a data stream service prior to expiration of a data retention time. The data is archived to a data store distinct from the data stream service (e.g., in a full or compacted mode). Access to the archived data is provided via a proxy that intercepts requests directed to the streaming service. For example, the proxy or a redirect utility for the proxy may intercept a query, and for data specified in the query that is past the retention expiration time, the data is retrieved from the data store. For data specified in the query that has not yet expired, the data is retrieved from the data stream service. In either case, the system responds to the query with the retrieved data according to the access interface of the data stream service (e.g., injecting the retrieved data into a data stream).

  • Patent number: 11281648
    Abstract: Technologies for flexible tree-based lookups include an network device that receives a network packet. The network device classifies the network packet to determine a packet type and extracts multiple fields from the network packet to generate a field vector. The fields are selected based on the packet type. The field vector includes words that are associated with the fields. The network device builds a tree representation of the field vector. The tree representation includes a leaf node corresponding to each word of the field vector and one or more root nodes. The network device executes an iterative lookup over the tree representation and, if matching, may perform an action associated with the iterative lookup. To execute the lookup, the network device may determine whether a search key for each node exactly matches a search rule, up to a root node. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11282067
    Abstract: A radio frequency identification (RFID) switch tag is disclosed. This RFID switch tag includes a base component having an ultra-high frequency (UHF) booster, and a detachable component having at least one UHF RFID module and a high frequency (HF) RFID module. In some embodiments, the detachable component is positioned in close proximity to the base component in a first configuration of the RFID switch tag such that the at least one UHF RFID module is sufficiently coupled to the UHF booster in the base component to form an UHF RFID system having a desired performance. The detachable component can also be separated from the base component to obtain a second configuration of the RFID switch tag, and the HF RFID module remains functional within the detached detachable component so that the detachable component can be used as a standalone HF RFID tag.

  • Patent number: 11283650
    Abstract: A method for sending a VxLAN packet, a computer device, and a computer readable medium, to resolve a problem that a network adapter cannot forward a VxLAN packet in the prior art. By means of the method for forwarding a VxLAN packet provided in the embodiments of the present disclosure, after receiving a first packet, a network adapter determines whether the network adapter stores encapsulation information required for performing VxLAN encapsulation on the first packet; if the network adapter stores the encapsulation information, performs VxLAN encapsulation on the first packet and sends the first packet; or if the network adapter does not store the encapsulation information, requests the encapsulation information from a central processing unit and stores the encapsulation information; and sends a packet obtained after the VxLAN encapsulation is performed on the first packet.

  • Patent number: 11281656
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for migrating data between systems without downtime. User requests may be handled adaptively during migration of data records from a first record system to a second record system, to maintain access to the data during the migration. The handling may include receiving a user request; determining at least one data record associated with the received user request; determining if a copy of the data record in the first record system is still active; and if the copy of the data record in the first record system is still active, forwarding the user request to the first record system. The user request may be forwarded to the second record system if the copy of the data record in the first record system is not active, and a retry mechanism may be used if the user request is not handled by the second record system.

  • Patent number: 11276201
    Abstract: Determining the position and orientation (or “pose”) of an augmented reality device includes capturing an image of a scene having a number of features and extracting descriptors of features of the scene represented in the image. The descriptors are matched to landmarks in a 3D model of the scene to generate sets of matches between the descriptors and the landmarks. Estimated poses are determined from at least some of the sets of matches between the descriptors and the landmarks. Estimated poses having deviations from an observed location measurement that are greater than a threshold value may be eliminated. Features used in the determination of estimated poses may also be weighted by the inverse of the distance between the feature and the device, so that closer features are accorded more weight.
