  • Patent number: 11940898
    Abstract: An administrator agent and local worker agents are provided in nodes of a distributed system to support dynamic tracing of runtime data. Trace profiles are associated with the nodes on which the local worker agents reside. The local worker agents monitor the runtime data for an error, and the administrator agent adjusts the trace profile(s) in response to the error(s). The administrator agent sends the adjusted trace profile(s) to the local worker agents, so as to enable trace output data of traces performed by the nodes to be increased or decreased.

  • Patent number: 11914501
    Abstract: An instrumentation analysis system processes data streams by executing instructions specified using a data stream language program. A user interface allows users to specify data stream language programs. The user interface presents widgets to the user to specify various components of a data stream language program, including a filter expression, an analytical function representing an aggregation or transformation, and so on. The user interface allows users to specify an expression based on results of previously specified data stream language programs. The instrumentation analysis system processes the data stream language programs specified by the user to generate a set of result data streams and plots the result data streams, for example, on a screen of a client device.

  • Patent number: 11880271
    Abstract: The current document is directed to methods and systems that employ call traces collected by one or more call-trace services to generate call-trace-classification rules to facilitate root-cause analysis of distributed-application operational problems and failures. In a described implementation, a set of automatically labeled call traces is partitioned by the generated call-trace-classification rules. Call-trace-classification-rule generation is constrained to produce relatively simple rules with greater-than-threshold confidences and coverages. The call-trace-classification rules may point to particular services and service failures, which provides useful information to distributed-application and distributed-computer-system managers and administrators attempting to diagnose operational problems and failures that arise during execution of distributed applications within distributed computer systems.

  • Patent number: 11816106
    Abstract: The present application relates to managing memory of a KLL sketch for a streaming set. A computer system allocates an initial amount of memory from a computer memory to a buffer of a KLL sketch data structure based on a sparse sketch size independent of a data type of the streaming set. The system allocates an incremental amount of memory greater than or equal to the initial amount of memory from the computer memory to the buffer in response to a size of the streaming set exceeding a supported stream size of the KLL sketch data structure. The system determines a number of levels of the KLL sketch data structure based on a total allocated amount of memory and a size of the data type of the streaming set. The system adds new elements from the streaming set to the KLL sketch data structure based on the number of levels.

  • Patent number: 11755458
    Abstract: Automatic identification of execution behavior(s) of software. This automatic identification is based on analysis of historical execution records using machine learning to identify a particular pattern that corresponds to an execution behavior. In order to automatically identify an execution behavior present within particular software, an execution record of that particular software is accessed. The execution record includes an execution trace that reproducibly represents the execution of the software within a particular execution environment, such that the execution record is usable to rerun the execution of the software precisely as the software previously run. Based on finding the particular pattern within the execution record, the computing system automatically identifies that the execution behavior is present within the software.

A determination is made as to whether one or more method calls of the plurality of method calls are causing the service to underperform in view of the plurality of nested spans. In response to determining that the one or more method calls of the plurality of method calls are causing the service to underperform, a remedial action associated with the one or more method calls is performed.

  • Patent number: 11243869
    Abstract: Diffing subject and comparison traces. The subject and comparison traces can be matched based on identifying similar work being performed by their represented entities. The diffing includes identifying first function calls from the subject trace and identifying second function calls the comparison trace. First and second call trees are created from these function calls; parent-to-child node relationships in the call trees represent caller-to-callee function relationships. A differencing tree is created from the call trees; differencing tree nodes indicate a differencing status between the first and second call trees, and a differencing cost based on the nodes' differencing status pus an aggregation of the node's descendants' differencing costs. A differencing tree node is identified based on following nodes that most contribute to differences between the first and second call trees, and it is used to provide an indicia of a difference between the first and second function calls.

  • Patent number: 11240126
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing distributed tracing for application performance monitoring utilizing a distributed search engine in a microservices architecture. An example method comprises providing a user interface (UI) including a distributed trace indicating in real time the services invoked to serve an incoming HTTP request, the UI further including, in a single view, associated execution times for the services shown as a timeline waterfall. The distributed trace automatically propagates a trace ID to link services end-to-end in real time until a response to the request is served. The single view also provides graphs of response time information and the distribution of response times for the services. In response to selection of a particular element of the distribution, the UI provides respective timing details. The graphs and data shown on the single view can be filtered based on metadata input into a search field of the single view.

  • Patent number: 11231910
    Abstract: An information-technology (IT) blueprint is an executable document that, when executed, can be used to create an IT application such as an e-commerce site. An IT lifecycle blueprint can further be used to manage (e.g., modify) and, ultimately, destroy such an IT application. To this end, an IT lifecycle blueprint can include idempotent methods that achieve the same result whether starting from a blank (real or virtual) infrastructure or from a previously populated infrastructure. In other words, the same method that created an IT application can be used to modify it. A request for a post-deployment modification can be made using a topological representation of a blueprint and highlighting the representations of components to which a selected modification could be applied.

    Abstract: Deterministic memory allocation for real-time applications. In an embodiment, bitcode is scanned to detect calls by a memory allocation function to a dummy function. Each call uses parameters comprising an identifier of a memory pool and a size of a data type to be stored in the memory pool. For each detected call, an allocation record, comprising the parameters, is generated. Then, a header file is generated based on the allocation records. The header file may comprise a definition of bucket(s) and a definition of memory pools. Each definition of a memory pool may identify at least one bucket.
