Fault Locating (i.e., Diagnosis Or Testing) Patents (Class 714/25)
  • 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: 10859609
    Abstract: Some embodiments described herein include an apparatus having a processor communicatively coupled to a memory. The processor is configured to monitor, at a characteristic controller, a first characteristic of an electronic device. The processor is then configured to receive side-channel signature analysis of the electronic device from a signature analyzer. The processor is configured to determine if the first characteristic of the electronic device has changed or will change in a predefined period of time based on the side-channel signature analysis. The processor is then configured to adjust a second characteristic of the electronic device and/or filtering characteristics such that the side-channel signature analysis reflects predefined side-channel behavior.

  • Patent number: 10831645
    Abstract: A developer is monitored by at least one sensor, and developer data is gathered from the at least one sensor. Code change data is gathered for changes made by the monitored developer to at least one area of code, and the code change data is mapped to the developer data. Test cases are run to test the at least one area of code, and to identify failed test cases. Code change data corresponding to the failed test cases is also identified, as well as developer data mapped to the corresponding code change data. Further, a prediction model that correlates test case failure with the developer data is generated. The prediction model is used to generate probabilities of failure for test cases based on a new developer data mapped to new code test data.

  • Patent number: 10831647
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present disclosure pertains to testing. In one embodiment, software tests are performed on a first software server. Tests may be repeated a plurality of times to check for consistent failures or passes. Test results are sent to a second software server. The test results are stored in one or more databases on the second software server, where particular test results are associated with one or more fields specifying whether the test was passed and whether the test was failed. Tests that were both passed and failed may be deemed “flaky” tests. The second software server may generate a query to retrieve test results from the database that both passed and failed at least one test (flaky tests). Flaky tests may be quickly retrieved and processed.

  • Patent number: 10831167
    Abstract: A system and method for facilitating inspection of fire alarm systems includes a graphical user interface rendered on a touchscreen display of a mobile computing device receiving selections of inspection results. The graphical user interface includes a testing pane, which indicates devices that are currently being tested, and a selection pane, which indicates devices yet to be tested. The devices indicated by the selection pane are filtered according to the inferred location of the inspector or the inferred order of test. Selection of devices indicated by the selection pane results in those devices being indicated by the testing pane. Results of inspections of the devices indicated by the testing pane are then selected by the touchscreen display detecting gestures (e.g. swipes toward the left or right) corresponding to different results. The results are sent to a connected services system and stored in a connected services database.

  • Patent number: 10824539
    Abstract: Recording a replay-able trace of execution of a multi-threaded process includes identifying a trace memory model that defines one or more orderable events that are to be ordered across a plurality of threads of the multi-threaded process. The plurality of threads are executed concurrently across one or more processing units of one or more processors. During execution of the plurality of threads, a separate replay-able trace is recorded for each thread independently. Recording includes, for each thread, recording initial state for the thread, recording at least one memory read performed by at least one processor instruction executed by the thread that takes memory as input, and recording a least one orderable event performed by the thread with a monotonically increasing number that orders the event among other orderable events across the plurality of threads.

  • Patent number: 10802077
    Abstract: A test circuit includes a BIST clock generator and a functional clock generator. A first multiplexer selectively passes the BIST clock or the functional clock as a selected clock in response to a clock selection signal. BIST logic operates based upon the BIST clock. Functional logic operating based upon the functional clock signal. A memory operates based upon the selected clock. When the test circuit is operating in BIST mode, a clock selection circuit receives and passes a BIST signal as the clock selection signal. When the test circuit is operating in a shift phase of a scan test mode, it generates the clock selection signal as asserted, and when the test circuit is operating in the capture phase of the scan test mode, it generates the clock signal as equal to a last bit received from a scan chain.

  • Patent number: 10802934
    Abstract: Systems and methods for preventing system crashes due to memory link failure in memory mirroring mode in an information handling system (IHS). The IHS may include a first memory device, a second memory device, and an integrated memory controller (IMC). The IMC may issue write transactions to both the first and second memory devices and issue read transactions to the first memory device when the IMC is in memory mirroring mode. The IMC may transmit a system management interrupt (SMI) with an IMC error to a basic input/output system (BIOS) when a persistent uncorrected IMC error is detected within the first memory device. The BIOS may perform a memory mirror failover process that may cause the IMC to issue the write transactions and the read transactions to the second memory device when the IMC error is a fatal memory link error.
