    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for implementing an automated parallel deployment solution. Embodiments of the invention described herein prevent defects from being introduced in a production environment, or those that could be introduced in a production environment, by parallel log monitoring of existing and new state systems. One or more systems may be created in parallel to the production system to detect and fix defects. In embodiments of the invention, as existing defects are captured and resolved by the automatic defect resolution system and method, these defects will not impact production any further. Thus, the automatic defect resolution system drives out all production defects over a window of time, requiring less and less maintenance over time. Once a given defect is fixed, the corresponding change is applied to the production environment to avoid future similar defects.

  • Patent number: 11231342
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a four-dimensional imaging method for structural damage based on a time-invariant characteristic signal. The method first uses a probability statistical modeling method to describe the uncertainty distribution of the amplitude of each sampling point in the signal in the healthy state and the damaged state of the structure, respectively. Then the degree of difference between the two distributions at each point is measured to suppress the influence of the time-varying factor, highlight the influence of damage, and construct a time-invariant characteristic signal. Finally, the time-invariant characteristic signal of the pitch-catch channel is fused by using the guided wave imaging method to further enhance the influence of damage. Based on this, four-dimensional imaging is performed to achieve reliable and accurate location of structural damage.

  • Patent number: 11132288
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for data-driven scheduling of automated software program test suites. An exemplary method comprises: obtaining a plurality of test cases that test software programs; obtaining a failure likelihood for each of the plurality of test cases; and scheduling the test cases in an order based on the failure likelihoods. Generally, test cases that are more likely to fail are scheduled before test cases that are less likely to fail. Dependencies and/or priorities among the plurality of test cases are also optionally obtained and the scheduling of the test cases is based on the dependencies and/or priorities. The dependencies among the plurality of test cases comprise, for example, an indication of whether a given test case constrains one or more additional test cases.

  • Patent number: 11119872
    Abstract: A computer-readable medium comprises instructions which, upon execution by a node in a multi-node data processing system, enable the node to serve as a first leader node by receiving system log data from multiple compute nodes in a first cluster of the multi-node data processing system, and by saving the system log data in shared storage that is also used by second and third leader nodes to save system log data for compute nodes in second and third clusters of the multi-node data processing system. The instructions further enable the node to respond to failure of either of the second and third leader nodes by automatically assuming system logging duties for the compute nodes in the cluster that was associated with the failed leader node. The instructions may also enable the node to serve as a console bridge and to save console log data in the shared storage.

  • Patent number: 11061800
    Abstract: Technologies for assigning a user-generated issue report to an appropriate team for investigation are disclosed. A log file associated with an issue report is parsed to create an object model. The object model is a hierarchy of objects containing data emitted over time by a computer application associated with the issue report. Rules analyze the content of the object model, and when a rule is satisfied, the issue report is assigned to a team associated with the rule for investigation. Rules may access objects in the object model on a per-component level, thereby allowing issues to be assigned to teams at the level of individual components. Rules may also perform a root cause analysis of the issue based on the object model.
