  • Patent number: 11210206
    Abstract: A service testing system is disclosed to enable consistent replay of stateful requests on a service whose output depends on the service's execution state prior to the requests. In embodiments, the service implements a compute engine that executes service requests and a storage subsystem that maintains execution states during the execution of stateful requests. When a stateful request is received during testing, the storage subsystem creates an in-memory test copy of the execution state to support execution of the request, and provides the test copy to the compute engine. In embodiments, the storage subsystem will create a separate instance of execution state for each individual test run. The disclosed techniques enable mock execution states to be easily created for testing of stateful requests, in a manner that is transparent to the compute engine and does not impact production execution data maintained by the service.

  • Patent number: 10600141
    Abstract: Marker commands are added to a stream of commands that are executed by a graphics processing unit (GPU) in a computing system. While the GPU executes the commands, information is written to a memory location each time a marker is reached in the pipeline. The memory location is accessible to the central processing unit (CPU), and the information identifies a command executed by the GPU. If the CPU receives an indication that the GPU is in an invalid state, then the CPU responds by accessing the memory location to identify the command executed in the pipeline of the GPU. Consequently, a command that was executing when the GPU entered the invalid state can be identified. This information can be used to pinpoint the cause of the invalid state.

  • Patent number: 10394692
    Abstract: An analysis system receives data streams generated by instances of instrumented software executing on external systems. The analysis system evaluates an expression using data values of the data streams over a plurality of time intervals. For example, the analysis system may aggregate data values of data streams for each time interval. The analysis system determines whether or not a data stream is considered for a time interval based on when the data value arrives during the time interval. The analysis system determines a maximum expected delay value for each data stream being processed. The analysis system evaluates the expression using data values that arrive before their maximum expected delay values. The analysis system also determines a failure threshold value for a data stream. If a data value of a data stream fails to arrive before the failure threshold value, the analysis system marks the data stream as dead.
