    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer storage media for providing self-healing operations for root corruptions in a file system are provided. While performing file system operations, the root may be inaccessible by the file system engine for executing file system operations. A root becomes inaccessible for performing file system operations when corrupted. A determination is made that the root having a root data region is corrupted and a self-healing operation should be performed. A root-corruption self-healing operation is executed to re-allocate (or recycle) the root data region to the root. The self-healing operation circumvents a copy-on-write policy of the file system to re-allocate the root data region of the root in-place and transform the root from a corrupted root to a recycled root. A file system data operation, such as a data recovery operation or file system management operation (e.g., a file or directory operation) can be performed using the recycled root.

In response to a given TPM weightage of the TPM weightages of the TPM participants being greater than the TPM coordinator weightage, the TPM coordinator changes a TPM coordinator function to a given TPM participant having the given TPM weightage such that the given TPM participant is an interim TPM coordinator for the transaction instance.

  • Patent number: 11106639
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media for performing metadata-driven data collection are disclosed. In some examples, a method includes receiving a request for system status data for components of a distributed computing system while the distributed computing system is in operation. The request includes metadata specifying a data collection sequence for collecting component-level system status data. The components include compute components, network components, and storage components. The method includes obtaining, using the metadata, the component-level system status data by querying protocol-based data collectors in an order, one after the other, as specified by the data collection sequence specified by the metadata. The method includes assembling the component-level system status data into assembled status data and storing the assembled status data in memory and/or a repository.

  • Patent number: 11105855
    Abstract: An apparatus for determining a single decision function is configured to obtain measurements from a plurality of devices under test corresponding to stimulating signals applied to the plurality of devices under test. The stimulating signals correspond to a set of tests performed on the plurality of devices under test. The apparatus may further determine a subset of tests from the set of tests, such that the subset of tests is relevant for indicating whether the plurality of devices under test pass the set of tests. The apparatus may also determine the single decision function applicable to measurements from an additional device under test tested using the subset of tests, such that the single decision function is adapted to predict a test result for the set of tests on the basis of the subset of tests.

  • Patent number: 11106619
    Abstract: The invention concerns the transmission of synchronous data between a master communication module and a slave communication module via a serial data bus, in particular a SPI bus. According to the invention, the data to be transmitted by each of the two master and slave communication modules are encapsulated in a data field (31) of at least one frame further comprising a frame identifier (30), and two frames are exchanged simultaneously between the two master and slave communication modules according to at least one predefined sequencing corresponding to a unique pairing of the identifiers of the two frames exchanged simultaneously. The integrity of a communication can therefore be controlled by verifying the sequencing of the exchanged frames.

  • Patent number: 11099973
    Abstract: Computing systems, database systems, and related methods are provided for managing test cases. One method involves a server receiving a first test result message, automatically generating a first test case definition based on a subset of the fields of metadata associated with the first test result message, and creating an entry in the database that maintains an association between the first test case definition and the first test results. The method continues by receiving a second test result message, automatically generating a second test case definition based on the subset of the fields of metadata associated with the second test result message, and updating a database to maintain an association between the first test case definition and the second test results when the second text case definition matches the first test case definition. Relationships between test results that share a common definition are thereby maintained in an automated manner.

  • Patent number: 11087096
    Abstract: A system and method for reducing incident alerts for an enterprise environment are described. In one embodiment, a method of reducing incident alerts for an enterprise environment includes receiving a plurality of historical incident alerts associated with previous incidents associated with nodes within an enterprise environment. The method includes extracting from a first subset of the historical incident alerts a plurality of rules to generate a rule knowledge base and analyzing a second subset of the historical incident alerts against the plurality of rules to identify candidate incidents alerts as potential dead-end tickets. The method also includes providing feedback on the candidate incident alerts to confirm or deny that the alert is a dead-end ticket. Based on the feedback, a prescriptive avoidance rule set is generated to identify an incident alert as a dead-end ticket and eliminate the dead-end tickets from submitted incident alerts.

  • Patent number: 11073970
    Abstract: Provided is a method for automatically identifying a long loading time for a user selection. An initial user input against a selection element for an application running on an electronic device is received. The initial user input is transmitted to a server for processing the initial user input. One or more additional user inputs are received after the server has begun processing the initial user input. Statistical analysis techniques are utilized to determine a selection attempt value. The selection attempt value is compared to a predetermined retry rate criteria. The selection attempt value is determined to satisfy a threshold. An action is performed in response to determining that the selection attempt value satisfies the threshold.

  • Patent number: 11070516
    Abstract: Technology for analyzing and tracking states of a directory service by correlating changes from multiple different data sources related to the directory service. A first data source may be based on synchronization data of the directory service and a second data source may be based on security data of one or more domain controllers hosting the directory service. The synchronization data and security data may both correspond to changes to the directory service but may include different information. For example, synchronization data may provide the content of a modification to the directory service and the security data may provide an entity that initiated the modification. The multiple sources may be compared to identify inconsistencies (e.g., detect malicious activity).

  • Patent number: 11061796
    Abstract: Computational processes and systems are directed to detecting abnormally behaving objects of a distributed computing system. An object can be a physical or a virtual object, such as a server computer, application, VM, virtual network device, or container. Processes and systems identify a set of metrics associated with an object and compute an indicator metric from the set of metrics. The indicator metric is used to label time stamps that correspond to outlier metric values of the set of metrics. The metrics and outlier time stamps are used to compute rules by machine learning. Each rule corresponds to a subset or combination of metrics and represents specific threshold conditions for metric values. The rules are applied to run-time metric data of the metrics to detect run-time abnormal behavior of the object.
