  • Patent number: 11748074
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments relate to techniques for use with mainframe computing systems that include both general-purpose processors (e.g., CPs) and special-purpose processors that can be used to perform only certain limited operations (e.g., zIIPs). Certain example embodiments automatically help these special-purpose processors perform user exits and other routines thereon, rather than requiring those operations to be performed on general-purpose processors. This approach advantageously can improve system performance when executing programs including these user exits and other routines, and in a preferred embodiment, it can be accomplished in connection with a suitably-configured user exit daemon. In a preferred embodiment, the daemon and its clients can use a user exit property table or the like to communicate with one another about the state of each user exit or other routine that has been analyzed, classified, and possibly modified.

    Abstract: A power management algorithm framework proposes: 1) a Quality-of-Service (QoS) metric for throughput-based workloads; 2) heuristics to differentiate between throughput and latency sensitive workloads; and 3) an algorithm that combines the heuristic and QoS metric to determine target frequency for minimizing idle time and improving power efficiency without any performance degradation. A management algorithm framework enables optimizing power efficiency in server-class throughput-based workloads while still providing desired performance for latency sensitive workloads. The power savings are achieved by identifying workloads in which one or more cores can be run at a lower frequency (and consequently lower power) without a significant negative performance impact.

  • Patent number: 10732985
    Abstract: An information and entertainment system of a vehicle providing a number of functions that can be used by a user of the vehicle. In the method, an order of priority of the multiple functions is set by the user, wherein the order of priority states a time availability of the functions desired by the user after an activation of the information and entertainment system. In accordance with the set order of priority, the multiple functions are carried out after a starting of the information and entertainment system, and sub-functions of the multiple functions can be immediately made available.

  • Patent number: 10613619
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatuses are described that provide an ultra-low power mode for a low-cost force-sensing device. These techniques extend battery life of the device by minimizing power consumption for potential wake-up events. To do this, a high-pass filter (e.g., differentiator) is used to evaluate sensor signals in a time domain to provide an estimate of a rate of change of the signal. When the rate of change of the signal deviates from a baseline value by a threshold amount, then a microcontroller is woken to evaluate a large number of historical samples, such as 200 or more milliseconds worth of historical data. If a human gesture is not recognized, then the microcontroller returns to an idle state, but if a human gesture is recognized, then a high-power application processor is woken to execute an application configured to perform an operation mapped to the human gesture.

  • Patent number: 10564633
    Abstract: A cloud-based virtualization generation service collects industrial data from multiple industrial automation systems of multiple industrial customers for storage and analysis on a cloud platform. A virtualization management component (VMC) generates a virtualized industrial automation system of an industrial automation system based on data analysis results. The VMC facilitates remotely controlling the industrial automation system based on user interactions with the virtualized industrial automation system, and updates the virtualized industrial automation system based on collected data relating to the industrial automation system. The VMC customizes a user's view of the virtualized industrial automation system based on a user's role, authorization, location, or preferences, wherein different views of the virtualized industrial automation system with different data overlays are presented on different communication devices of different users.

  • Patent number: 10462251
    Abstract: A file-mapping method and system can better manage the number of items (i.e., files, subdirectories, or a combination of them) within any single directory within a storage medium. The method and system can be used to limit the number of items within the directory, direct content and content components to different directories, and provide an internally recognizable name for the filename. When searching the storage medium, time is not wasted searching what appears to be a seemingly endless list of filenames or subdirectory names within any single directory. A client computer can have requests for content fulfilled quicker, and the network site can reduce the load on hardware or software components. While the method and system can be used for nearly any storage media, the method and system are well suited for cache memories used with web servers.
