  • Patent number: 9804942
    Abstract: In safety-critical computer systems, fault tolerance is an important design requirement. Data buses for on-chip interconnection in these processor-based systems are exposed to risk arising from faults in the interconnect itself or in any of the connected peripherals. To provide sufficient fault tolerance, a safety node is inserted between an upstream master section and a downstream slave section of an on-chip bus hierarchy or network. The safety node provides a programmable timeout monitor for detecting a timeout condition for a transaction. If timeout has occurred, the safety node transmits a dummy response back to the master, assumes the role of a master, and waits for the slave device to respond. Furthermore, the safety node rejects any subsequent requests by any of the masters on the upstream section by transmitting a dummy response to those subsequent requests, thus enabling these masters to avoid deadlock or stall.

  • Patent number: 9769250
    Abstract: A server system receives messages from client computing devices. Each of the messages corresponds to a transaction. The server system assigns each respective transaction to a respective fresh virtual machine. Furthermore, the server system performs, as part of a respective virtual machine processing a respective transaction, a modification associated with the respective transaction to a shared database. The shared database is persisted independently of the plurality of virtual machines. In response to determining that processing of the respective transaction is complete, the server system discards the respective virtual machine. In response to a trigger, such as determining that the respective transaction is associated with a cyber-attack, the server system uses checkpoint data associated with the respective transaction to roll back the modifications associated with the respective transaction to the shared database.

  • Patent number: 9767464
    Abstract: In general, webpage or other resource accesses by client systems may be recorded, and those accesses may be analyzed to develop audience measurement reports. At times, it may be desirable to segment those reports according to classes of client systems (e.g., work vs. home client systems). A given client system can be classed into one of the reporting classes based on one or more classes of network service providers that provide the client with access to a network. The recorded resource accesses and classes of the client systems can then be used to generate audience measurement reports that are segmented according to one or more of the client system classes.

  • Patent number: 9766989
    Abstract: The data storage system according to certain aspects can manage the archiving of virtual machines to (and restoring of virtual machines from) secondary storage. The system may archive virtual machines (VMs) that are determined to have a low level of utilization. The system may create a virtual machine placeholder for an archived VM, which may be a “light” or minimal version of the VM that acts like the actual VM. By using a VM placeholder, a VM may appear to be active and selectable by the user. When the user selects the VM, the VM placeholder can interact with the user in similar manner as the VM. Accessing the VM placeholder may trigger restore of the archived VM from secondary storage. The restore of the archived VM may be “seamless” to the user since the VM remains available while it is being restored.
