  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10747610
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method, according to one embodiment, includes: determining whether an error has occurred for each block of storage space in memory by sequentially evaluating each of the blocks of storage space. In response to determining that an error has occurred for a given block, the given block is scanned for an identifier at an end of data stored in the given block, and a trailer appended to the identifier is located. Metadata included in the trailer is further used to identify each additional block which corresponds to a same file as the given block, and a data scrubbing procedure is performed on the given block and each of the additional identified blocks. A result of the scrubbing procedure is also output in response to detecting an error in the given block and/or the additional identified blocks.

  • Patent number: 10699211
    Abstract: Techniques are described for classifying seasonal patterns in a time series. In an embodiment, a set of time series data is decomposed to generate a noise signal and a dense signal. Based on the noise signal, a first classification is generated for a plurality of seasonal instances within the set of time series data, where each respective instance of the plurality of instances corresponds to a respective sub-period within the season and the first classification associates a first set of one or more instances from the plurality of instances with a particular class of seasonal pattern. Based on the dense signal, a second classification is generated that associates a second set of one or more instances with the particular class. Based on the first classification and the second classification, a third classification is generated, where the third classification associates a third set of one or more instances with the particular class.

  • Patent number: 10690511
    Abstract: Technologies for managing sensor anomalies in a compute system include determining whether sensor data received from a first sensor is anomalous based on sensor data from another sensor and a correlation rule. The correlation rule defines an excepted correlation between the first sensor data and the second sensor data. If the correlation between the first sensor data and the second sensor data is not observed, the first sensor data may be deemed anomalous. If so, the first sensor data may be verified using another sensor or other correlation. If the first sensor is determined to be malfunctioning, the compute system may mitigate the loss of the first sensor by using another sensor in its place.

  • Patent number: 10678639
    Abstract: Methods for use in a dispersed storage network (DSN) to retrieve encoded data from memory device of an impaired storage unit. In various embodiments, a computing device of the DSN issues requests to a plurality of storage units, including the impaired storage unit, to recover at least a decode threshold number of encoded data slices of a set of encoded data slices. When the impaired storage unit determines that it is not able to quickly retrieve the requested data slice for provision to the computing device, the impaired storage unit promptly issues a quasi-error response instead. In response to receiving less than the decode threshold number of encoded data slices and a quasi-error response, the computing device determines to issue another slice request(s) to another storage unit(s) and/or issue a continue request instructing the impaired storage unit to continue processing the request to recover the data slice stored therein.
