  • Patent number: 10365903
    Abstract: A method for using profiling to obtain application-specific, preferred parameter values for an application is disclosed. First, a parameter for which to obtain an application-specific value is identified. Code is then augmented for application-specific profiling of the parameter. The parameter is profiled and profile data is collected. The profile data is then analyzed to determine the application's preferred parameter value for the profile parameter.

  • Patent number: 10303469
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for generating a commit graph for a software project maintained in a version control system having a directory-based branching structure. One of the methods includes receiving data representing a commit history of a software project maintained in a version control system having a directory-based branching system in which each branch of the commit history has a respective branch directory and each revision is identified by a branch path and a revision number. The commit history is traced backward in time from a starting commit of a branch to identify an initial commit in which a branch directory for the branch was created. The commit history is then processed forward in time from the initial commit to generate a tree-structured commit graph.

  • Patent number: 10255062
    Abstract: A classloader executing in an execution environment, such as a JAVA virtual machine or a software container, may be configured to generate class usage data describing the historical usage of classes by applications in the execution environment. Based upon the class usage data, one or more classes may be pre-loaded into a cache prior to receiving a request from an application to load the classes. If an application subsequently requests a class, the request may be satisfied using the class stored in the cache rather than by loading the class at the time the request is received. A probabilistic data structure, such as a Bloom filter, might also be utilized to determine whether a classloader can possibly load a requested class. Only if the classloader can possibly load the requested class will a search be made for the requested class in a classpath associated with the classloader.

  • Patent number: 10210209
    Abstract: A procedural pattern in a received query execution plan can be matched to a stored pattern for which an equivalent declarative operator has been pre-defined. The query execution plan can describe a query for accessing data. A hybrid execution plan can be generated by replacing the procedural pattern with the equivalent declarative operator. A hybrid execution plan processing cost can be assigned to execution of the hybrid execution plan and a query execution plan processing cost can be assigned to execution of the query execution plan. The assigning can include evaluating a cost model for the hybrid execution plan and the query execution plan. The query can be executed using the hybrid execution plan if the hybrid execution plan processing cost is less than the query execution plan processing cost or the query execution plan if the hybrid execution plan processing cost is greater than the query execution plan processing cost. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10162729
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for automatically reviewing structured query language (SQL) statements comprises the steps of receiving SQL code from a user seeking to access a database, parsing the SQL code to retrieve SQL keywords, mathematical operators, and logical operators, applying a complexity score calculation algorithm to the parsed code, calculating a complexity score, and executing the SQL code on a computing system which stores the database if the complexity score is less than or equal to a threshold. On the other hand, if the complexity score is greater than the threshold, the SQL code may be flagged to be rewritten.

  • Patent number: 10019285
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes receiving, from a natural language interface system, a natural language task specification, and converting the natural language task specification into a domain independent data flow graph. The data flow graph includes substeps. The method further includes: presenting the data flow graph via the natural language interface system as a natural language program; interactively refining the natural language program; and correspondingly modifying the data flow graph. The computer-implemented method further includes, for each substep: selecting one or more candidate APIs from an API library, based on the substep; interactively narrowing the one or more candidate APIs to at least one selected API; implementing the substep by specifying one or more calls to the at least one selected API to yield a substep implementation; and appending the substep implementation to a result program. A corresponding computer program product and computer system are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10013287
    Abstract: The system and method for structuring self-provisioning workloads deployed in virtualized data centers described herein may provide a scalable architecture that can inject intelligence and embed policies into managed workloads to provision and tune resources allocated to the managed workloads, thereby enhancing workload portability across various cloud and virtualized data centers. In particular, the self-provisioning workloads may have a packaged software stack that includes resource utilization instrumentation to collect utilization metrics from physical resources that a virtualization host allocates to the workload, a resource management policy engine to communicate with the virtualization host to effect tuning the physical resources allocated to the workload, and a mapping that the resource management policy engine references to request tuning the physical resources allocated to the workload from a management domain associated with the virtualization host.

  • Patent number: 9830152
    Abstract: Selective storing of previously decoded instructions of frequently-called instruction sequences in an instruction sequence buffer to be executed by a processor is disclosed. In one aspect, a selective instruction sequence buffer controller is configured to selectively store previously decoded instructions for an instruction sequence by determining if a received instruction address corresponds to an instruction sequence captured in an instruction sequence buffer. If the received instruction address corresponds to a captured instruction sequence, the selective instruction sequence buffer controller provides corresponding micro-operations stored in the instruction sequence buffer for execution. If the received instruction address does not correspond to the captured instruction sequence, the selective instruction sequence buffer controller reduces a frequency indicator of the instruction sequence.
