  • Patent number: 11550708
    Abstract: A system, method and apparatus for choosing a digital processing platform that is optimal for a specified type of application and satisfies a set of user-specified constraints is provided. In operation, all known parameters on all available processing platforms in a database are stored, providing this information to a computer software application run by the user by querying the database, and then allowing a remote user to specify the constraints, in terms of hardware and system software, to eliminate those entries that would not satisfy the constraints in a step-by-step filtering process. The user then chooses a set of application programs to run on the platforms that were not eliminated. The runtime performance parameters/characteristics—e.g. computational throughput, I/O bandwidth, environmental parameters, etc. are measured to select the optimal solution. The system and method also allows for a regression test to ensure consistency between test software processes running on discrete platforms.

  • Patent number: 11500368
    Abstract: Currently solutions for early detection of failures in manufacturing utilize predefined threshold levels of the process variables associated with equipment in manufacturing unit/industry plants. The pre-defined threshold and levels thereof are compared with the real values obtained from the manufacturing unit to check behavior of process variables (also referred as ‘process parameters’) and thus are prone to error. The present disclosure provides systems and method for predicting early warning of operating mode of equipment operating in industry plants which is based on transforming conditions on process parameters into conditions on corresponding fuzzy indices based on their thresholds. The fuzzy indices (concordance index, discordance index) of individual conditions are combined into a composite fuzzy index (composite index or degree of credibility) that describes the failure scenario in the process parameter space.

  • Patent number: 11099876
    Abstract: An aspect of the invention is a method that includes receiving a request from a requestor to reclaim a portion of a memory assigned to a virtual machine (VM). The memory includes real memory that is divided into a plurality of increments. An amount of paging space that will be occupied by the VM subsequent to reclaiming the portion of the memory is predicted. Based on the predicted amount of paging space exceeding a threshold, the requestor is notified that the portion of the memory cannot be reclaimed. Based on the predicted amount of paging space not exceeding the threshold, a reclamation of the portion of the memory is initiated. The reclamation includes vacating an increment of the plurality of increments and removing an assignment of the increment to the VM.
