  • Patent number: 10261763
    Abstract: Data transformation in a distributed system of applications and data repositories is described. The subsystems for the overall framework are distributed, thereby allowing for customization to require only isolated changes to one or more subsystems. In one embodiment, a source code repository is used to receive and store source code. A build subsystem can retrieve source code from the source code repository and build it, using one or more criteria. By building the source code, the build subsystem can generate an artifact, which is executable code, such as a JAR or SQL file. Likewise, by building the source code, the build subsystem can generate one or more job specifications for executing the executable code. In one embodiment, the artifact and job specification may be used to launch an application server in a cluster. The application server can then receive data transformation instructions and execute the data transformation instructions.

    Abstract: Managing instructions on a processor includes: executing threads having access to a stored library of operations. For a first thread executing on the first processor core, for each instruction included in the first thread and identified as being associated with a lock operation corresponding to a particular lock, the managing includes determining if the particular lock has already been acquired for another thread executing on a processor core other than the first processor core, and if so, continuing to perform the lock operation for multiple attempts using a hardware lock operation different from the lock operation in the stored library, and if not, acquiring the particular lock for the first thread. The hardware lock operation performs a modified atomic operation that changes a result of the hardware lock operation for failed attempts to acquire the particular lock relative to a result of the lock operation in the stored library.

  • Patent number: 10025368
    Abstract: An apparatus stores, based on results of sample-programs executed at operating frequencies, program-property information that includes innermost-loop-property information and other-loops-property information, and a minimum operating frequency indicating an operating frequency, of the operating frequencies, at which energy consumption upon execution of each of the sample-programs is the minimum; obtains first program-property information that is the program-property information corresponding to a first program before execution of the first program that is a program other than the sample-programs; and specifies second program-property information, of the program-property information stored in a memory, that includes information most similar to information included in the first program-property information obtained and estimating a first operating frequency at which the energy consumption upon execution of the first program is the minimum to be an operating frequency, of the minimum operating frequencies stored

  • Patent number: 10025568
    Abstract: In an example embodiment, relationships among a plurality of schemas are examined to remove any cyclic dependencies. Then a cycle-free graph of the cyclic dependencies is constructed. A first delivery mechanism is used to deliver software objects of a first database type to a first of the plurality of schemas in a software object database, using the cycle-free graph. A second delivery mechanism is used to deliver software objects of a second database type to a second of the plurality of schemas in the software object database, using the cycle-free graph.

  • Patent number: 10007787
    Abstract: Input is received during runtime of a program. The input is a return instruction address of a called function and a return target address of the program. A determination is made whether the instruction immediately prior to the return target address is a call to the called function. If the instruction immediately prior to the return target address is not a call to the called function, a notification is transmitted that return-oriented programming is suspected.

  • Patent number: 9990132
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments relate to a highly-concurrent, predictable, fast, self-managed, in-process space for storing data that is hidden away from the garbage collector and its related pauses. More particularly, certain example embodiments relate to improved memory management techniques for computer systems that leverage an off-heap direct-memory data store that is massively scalable and highly efficient. The off-heap store may be provided in connection with a Java-based environment, and garbage collection may be completely or nearly completely avoided for the off-heap store. The off-heap store may be integrated into a tiered storage solution in certain example embodiments.

  • Patent number: 9928125
    Abstract: A message broker configured to handle messages received from a plurality of client applications comprises a plurality of message queues that are each associated with a different task. A first synchronous message is received at a first message queue from a first client application. A determination is made that at a time the first synchronous message is received there is an earlier-received message from a different client application waiting in the first message queue. In response to the determination, the first synchronous message is coalesced with the earlier-received message such that a task associated with the first message queue is executed only once for both messages and a notice of the execution is returned to the first client application.
