  • Patent number: 11372869
    Abstract: A system for frequent pattern mining uses two layers of processing: a plurality of computing nodes, and a plurality of processors within each computing node. Within each computing node, the data set against which the frequent pattern mining is to be performed is stored in shared memory, accessible concurrently by each of the processors. The search space is partitioned among the computing nodes, and sub-partitioned among the processors of each computing node. If a processor completes its sub-partition, it requests another sub-partition. The partitioning and sub-partitioning may be performed dynamically, and adjusted in real time.

  • Patent number: 11374876
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to deployment of additional workload in the NFV-MANO to efficiently utilize resources during a lean workload period of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) associated with an intelligent cloud platform. The method comprises measuring, over a time period, a current resource utilization level of one or more rendered VNFs. Thereafter, forecasting future resource utilization for the time period based on predictive analysis criteria and the current resource utilization level of the one or more VNFs. The method further comprises a machine learning based inference for determining whether the forecast future resource utilization for said time period is less than a determined optimal resource utilization threshold value of the one or more VNFs. Thereafter, resources of the one or more VNFs to one or more additional workloads are allocated based on the determination of the future resource utilization.

  • Patent number: 11372683
    Abstract: Disclosed are aspects of memory-aware placement in systems that include graphics processing units (GPUs) that are virtual GPU (vGPU) enabled. Virtual graphics processing unit (vGPU) data is identified for graphics processing units (GPUs). A configured GPU list and an unconfigured GPU list are generated using the GPU data. The configured GPU list specifies configured vGPU profiles for configured GPUs. The unconfigured GPU list specifies a total GPU memory for unconfigured GPUs. A vGPU request is assigned to a vGPU of a GPU. The GPU is a first fit, from the configured GPU list or the unconfigured GPU list that satisfies a GPU memory requirement of the vGPU request.

  • Patent number: 11366701
    Abstract: An apparatus can include a control board operatively coupled to a modular compute boards and to a resource boards by (1) a first connection associated with control information and not data, and (2) a second connection associated with data and not control information. The control board can determine a computation load and a physical resource requirement for a time period. The control board can send, to the modular compute board and via the first connection, a signal indicating an allocation of that modular compute board during the time period. The control board can send, from the control board to the resource board, a signal indicating an allocation of that resource board to the modular compute board such that that resource board allocates at least a portion of its resources during the time period based on at least one of the computation load or the physical resource requirement.

  • Patent number: 11360780
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to context switching in a SIMD processor. In some embodiments, an apparatus includes pipeline circuitry configured to execute graphics instructions included in threads of a group of single-instruction multiple-data (SIMD) threads in a thread group. In some embodiments, context switch circuitry is configured to atomically: save, for the SIMD group, a program counter and information that indicates whether threads in the SIMD group are active using one or more context switch registers, set all threads to an active state for the SIMD group, and branch to handler code for the SIMD group. In some embodiments, the pipeline circuitry is configured to execute the handler code to save context information for the SIMD group and subsequently execute threads of another thread group. Disclosed techniques may allow instruction-level context switching even when some SIMD threads are non-active.
