  • Patent number: 10635548
    Abstract: A storage appliance can be designed to facilitate efficient restore of multiple backed up files in a system that allows files to share data blocks. A data management application or storage OS names data blocks and communicates those names to the storage appliance when backing up to or through the storage appliance. The storage appliance can leverage the data block names when restoring a group of files by restoring at data block granularity instead of file granularity. Restoring at the granularity of the data blocks by their names allows the storage appliance to avoid repeatedly sending a same data block to the restore requestor (e.g., a storage OS or data management application) while still instructing the restore requestor how to reconstruct the corresponding file(s) with mappings between valid data ranges and the named data blocks.

  • Patent number: 10474383
    Abstract: Improved techniques for applying performance controls in a data storage system based on overload correlations between units of managed storage objects (UMOs). When a performance indicator (e.g. response time) for a target UMO is outside an acceptable range, a competing UMO that potentially shares at least one potentially shared hardware component with the target UMO is identified. An overload correlation between the target UMO and the competing UMO is generated that indicates an amount of correlation between the performance indicator for the target UMO and a performance indicator for the competing UMO. A performance control is then applied to the throughput of the competing UMO that reduces the throughput of the competing UMO. The amount that the throughput of the competing UMO is reduced is based on the amount of overload correlation between the target UMO and the competing UMO.

  • Patent number: 10073698
    Abstract: A processor has an execution pipeline that executes microinstructions and an instruction translator that translates architectural instructions into the microinstructions. The instruction translator has a memory that holds microcode instructions and provides a fetch quantum of a plurality of microcode instructions per clock cycle, a queue that holds microcode instructions provided by the memory, and a branch decoder that decodes the fetch quantum to detect local branch instructions, causes microcode instructions of the fetch quantum up to but not including a first-in-program-order local branch instruction to be written to the queue, and prevents the first-in-program-order local branch instruction and following microcode instructions of the fetch quantum from being written to the queue. Local branch instructions are resolved by the instruction translator rather than the execution pipeline.

  • Patent number: 10069915
    Abstract: A method begins with a set of storage units receiving a plurality of sets of non-locking write requests from a plurality of computing devices. The method continues with each storage unit storing an encoded data slice of a respective one of the non-locking write requests of each set and sending a write response regarding the respective one of the non-locking write requests. The method continues with a computing device determining whether a threshold number of write responses regarding a corresponding one of the plurality of sets of non-locking write requests has an expected ordering indication. When the threshold number of write responses has the expected ordering indication, the method continues with the computing device sending a set of write finalize requests to the set of storage units to facilitate finalizing storing the set of encoded data slices of the corresponding one of the plurality of sets of non-locking write requests.
