Performance Monitoring For Fault Avoidance Patents (Class 714/47.1)
  • Patent number: 11561913
    Abstract: Control circuitry controls the operations of a central processing unit, CPU, which is associated with a nominal clock frequency. The CPU is further coupled to an I/O range and configured to deliver input to an application. The control circuitry controls the CPU to poll the I/O range for input to the application. The control circuitry also monitors whether or not each poll results in input to the application and adjusts a clock frequency at which the CPU operates to a clock frequency lower than the nominal clock frequency if a pre-defined number of polls resulting in no input is detected.

  • Patent number: 10866901
    Abstract: A method for invalidating a track of data on a storage drive in preparation to unpin the track is disclosed. In one embodiment, such a method includes invalidating certain metadata associated with a track of data residing on a storage drive of a storage system. The method further creates, in cache of the storage system, an invalid track image associated with the track. The method destages, from the cache, the invalid track image to the storage drive. Once the invalid track image is destaged, the method may unpin the track in cache, thereby enabling destages of the track from the cache to the storage drive going forward. A corresponding system and computer program product are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10860430
    Abstract: A computing device for storing backups of virtual machines includes a persistent storage and a backup manager. The persistent storage stores backup policies. The backup manager identifies an end of a backup generation session for a virtual machine of the virtual machines and, in response to identifying the end of the backup generation session, identifies a continuity chain implicated by the backup generation session using the backup policies; performs a membership analysis of the identified continuity chain to identify a continuity state of the continuity chain; makes a first determination that the identified continuity chain is broken based on the identified continuity state; and, in response to the first determination, remediates the continuity chain.

  • Patent number: 10805108
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for controlling and monitoring a peripheral in an aircraft that includes a master module connected to each slave module. Each slave module is disposed around a controlled peripheral and is connected to a port of the master module by a bidirectional link. The master module sends data frames comprising the value of a counter. Each slave module reads the value of the counter included in the data frame received, updates a counter with the value read, checks whether the value of the updated counter corresponds to a time-period index associated with the slave module and if so transfers a data frame to the master module. The master module selects, from a table comprising time period indices and identifiers, the port connecting the master module to the slave module the identifier of which is associated with the time-period index that corresponds to the counter's value.

  • Patent number: 10789563
    Abstract: A system management tool, with a risk assessment mode enabled, is executed within an execution infrastructure on a management computer system, to manage a target computer system in a production situation. When the execution of the tool reaches a risk segment which raises risk for the target system, a user is informed of at least one action to be executed in the risk segment. If the user agrees, the tool is allowed to execute in an automatic mode until an end of the risk segment is reached. Feedback is obtained from the user regarding safety of the risk segment; and the steps are repeated for a plurality of additional risk segments until the tool is deemed safe for all of the risk segments, after which the tool is transitioned from the risk assessment mode to an automatic mode of operation.

  • Patent number: 10789128
    Abstract: A computing device includes an interface configured to interface and communicate with a dispersed storage network (DSN), a memory that stores operational instructions, and a processing module operably coupled to the interface and memory such that the processing module, when operable within the computing device based on the operational instructions, is configured to perform various operations. Based on a detected storage error, the computing device is configured to determine availability status of encoded data slices (EDSs) within a set of EDSs. When at least a threshold number of EDSs are available, the computing device is configured to initiate a rebuilding function to abate the detected storage error. When less than the threshold number of EDSs are available, the computing device is configured to initiate a slice repair function to at least one storage unit (SU) to abate the detected storage error.

  • Patent number: 10756971
    Abstract: Various embodiments are generally directed to techniques for network strengthening, such as by detecting issues with one or more network components and reconfiguring one or more upstream or downstream network components to preempt issues with the one or more upstream or downstream network components, for instance. Some embodiments are particularly directed to a tool (e.g., strengthening agent) that implements pre-scripted or dynamic hardening of up and downstream dependencies of a network component in response to an issue identified with the network component. In many embodiments, up and downstream components of a network component may be reconfigured while the issue with the network component is being addressed to preempt issues with the up and downstream components.

  • Patent number: 10721141
    Abstract: Policies can be applied to, and enforced for, specific resources by applying a corresponding tag to those resources. An entity, such as a customer of a resource provider, can generate one or more policies to be applied to a set of resources, where those policies can relate to data retention, backup, lifecycle events, and other such aspects. Each policy can be associated with a particular tag, which may comprise a key-value pair to be applied to various resources. A policy enforcement manager can determine the tagged resources and ensure that the relevant policies are applied. The policies can include logic or intelligence for performing a variety of tasks with respect to resources, groups of resources, or types of resources, as identified using the tags.
