  • Patent number: 11632304
    Abstract: An assessment of computing system performance may include evaluating, within a time window, the average latency of operations of a certain type and size with respect to a peer performance model constructed for operations of the same type and size. Such evaluation may result in the determination of a peer performance score. The peer performance score may be used to label performance characteristics of the computing system that are measured within the same time window. A library of such performance characteristics labeled with respective peer performance scores may be constructed by examining multiple computing systems, and such library may be used to construct one or more symptom models. Each symptom model may map a performance characteristic to a symptom severity score, which indicates the severity of a symptom of the computing system.

  • Patent number: 11500581
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to efficient transfer layer packet (TLP) fragmentation in a data storage device. For an unaligned read from host flow, an amount of data sufficient to be aligned is transferred to the memory device from the host while the remainder of the data is stored in cache of the data storage device to be delivered to memory device at a later time. For an unaligned write to host flow, the unaligned data is written to cache and at a later time the cache will be flushed to the host device. In both cases, while the total data would be unaligned, a portion of the data is placed in cache so that the data not placed in cache is aligned. The data in cache is delivered at a later point in time.

  • Patent number: 11269629
    Abstract: Many signal processing, machine learning and scientific computing applications require a large number of multiply-accumulate (MAC) operations. This type of operation is demanding in both computation and memory. Process in memory has been proposed as a new technique that computes directly on a large array of data in place, to eliminate expensive data movement overhead. To enable parallel multi-bit MAC operations, both width- and level-modulating memory word lines are applied. To improve performance and provide tolerance against process-voltage-temperature variations, a delay-locked loop is used to generate fine unit pulses for driving memory word lines and a dual-ramp Single-slope ADC is used to convert bit line outputs. The concept is prototyped in a 180 nm CMOS test chip made of four 320×64 compute-SRAMs, each supporting 128× parallel 5 b×5 b MACs with 32 5 b output ADCs and consuming 16.6 mW at 200 MHz.

  • Patent number: 11232037
    Abstract: A cache management mechanism is provided having a size that is independent of an overall storage capacity of a non-volatile memory (NVM). The cache management mechanism includes a first level map data structure arranged as a first-in-first-out (FIFO) buffer to list a plurality of host access commands sequentially received from a host device. Each command has an associated host tag value. A cache memory stores user data blocks associated with the commands. A second level map of the cache management mechanism correlates cache addresses with the host tag values. A processing core searches the FIFO buffer in an effort to match a logical address of an existing command to the logical address for a new command. If a match is found, the host tag value is used to locate the cache address for the requested data. If a cache miss occurs, the new command is forwarded to the NVM.

  • Patent number: 11184824
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for upgrading wireless network devices, such as access points (APs). When a first AP needs an upgrade, a network controller of the first AP may identify and select a neighbor AP. The radio(s) of the neighbor AP can be split into multiple logical radios, at least one of which includes a backup virtual AP (VAP). The backup VAP can support client devices originally supported by the first AP, allowing those client devices to roam to the neighbor AP while the first AP is upgrading, and without needing to re-associate with the neighbor AP. From the client device perspective, it appears as though they are still being supported by the first AP. Upon upgrading the first AP, the client devices can roam back to the first AP (without needing to re-associate with the first AP). No downtime is experienced, and no RF holes are generated.

  • Patent number: 11113194
    Abstract: The embodiments herein creates DCT mechanisms that initiate a DCT at the time the updated data is being evicted from the producer cache. These DCT mechanisms are applied when the producer is replacing the updated contents in its cache because the producer has either moved on to working on a different data set (e.g., a different task) or moved on to working on a different function, or when the producer-consumer task manager (e.g., a management unit) enforces software coherency by sending Cache Maintenance Operations (CMO). One advantage of the DCT mechanism is that because the direct cache transfer takes place at the time the updated data is being evicted, by the time the consumer begins its task, the updated contents have already been placed in its own cache or another cache within the cache hierarchy.

  • Patent number: 11113806
    Abstract: A non-destructive testing (NDT) system can provide a tree model of an inspection on a display of an NDT device and on a web page configured in a web browser on a computing device coupled to the NDT device. Inspection data acquired using the NDT device can be provided in real-time as the inspection data is associated with a node configured in the tree model. The NDT system can generate an inspection tree model based on an inspection template including a template tree model. Defect properties, inspection instructions, and/or image transforms can be applied to nodes of the template tree model such that the generated inspection tree model includes the applied defect properties, inspection instructions, and/or image transforms, which can then be applied to the inspection data acquired at the inspection point location corresponding to each node.

  • Patent number: 11074184
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer program products for monitoring delivered packages are provided. Aspects include receiving, by a co-processor, a data stream and performing processing on the data stream. Aspects also include writing, by the co-processor, a data record into the output buffer. Based on a determination that the data record should replace a most recently stored data record in a cache, aspects include providing, by the co-processor to the cache controller, an instruction for the cache controller to write the data record to a location in the cache obtained from a most recently used address register. Based on a determination that the data record should not replace the most recently stored data record in the cache, aspects include writing, by the cache controller, the data record to an available location in the cache.

  • Patent number: 11019133
    Abstract: In some examples, a system comprises a memory device for storing instructions and a processor which executes instructions causing the system to perform operations comprising receiving an instruction to transfer a state of a first device to a second device, and packaging information relating to the state of the first device in a file. The packaging of the information relating to the state of the first device includes recording each application executing on the first device in a list maintained in the file, and transferring the file containing information relating to the state of the first device to the second device, either directly or indirectly based on an availability of connections between the first device and the second device. The file, when processed by the second device, causes the second device to reproduce the state of the first device. In some example, reproducing the state of the first device includes the second device downloading, from one or more of the locations, one or more of the applications.

  • Patent number: 10999139
    Abstract: In a method, identifiers are obtained of N to-be-upgraded nodes. An upgrade sequence of the N to-be-upgraded nodes is set according to the identifiers of the N to-be-upgraded nodes. A backup node of each to-be-upgraded node is determined according to the upgrade sequence of the N to-be-upgraded nodes, to obtain node backup information. A backup node of the Xth to-be-upgraded node is at least one node in a set that includes a to-be-upgraded node prior to the Xth to-be-upgraded node and a to-be-upgraded node following the (X+[Z+1])th to-be-upgraded node. Z is a ratio of a time required by the Xth to-be-upgraded node for migrating back service data to an online upgrade time of the Xth to-be-upgraded node. The node backup information is sent to the N to-be-upgraded nodes.
