  • Patent number: 11422808
    Abstract: An apparatus comprising: processing circuitry to process threads of data processing; and transactional memory support circuitry to support execution of a transaction within a thread processed by the processing circuitry. In response to a transactional compare-and-discard instruction executed within a given transaction, specifying a target address and a compare value, the processing circuitry loads a target data value from a memory location corresponding to the target address; sets at least one condition status indication depending on a result of comparing the target data value and the compare value; and discards the target data value without adding the target address to a working set of addresses tracked for the given transaction. This is useful for enabling thread level speculation to be implemented on a transactional memory architecture.

  • Patent number: 11271981
    Abstract: A low-latency cloud-scale computation environment includes a query language, optimization, scheduling, fault tolerance and fault recovery. An event model can be used to extend a declarative query language so that temporal analysis of event of an event stream can be performed. Extractors and outputters can be used to define and implement functions that extend the capabilities of the event-based query language. A script written in the extended query language can be translated into an optimal parallel continuous execution plan. Execution of the plan can be orchestrated by a streaming job manager which schedules vertices on available computing machines. The streaming job manager can monitor overall job execution. Fault tolerance can be provided by tracking execution progress and data dependencies in each vertex. In the event of a failure, another instance of the failed vertex can be scheduled. An optimal recovery point can be determined based on checkpoints and data dependencies.

    Abstract: A computerized mechanism to formulate a data flow representation from a syntax tree. The syntax tree may be, for instance, an abstract syntax tree (AST) that is formulated by compiling query script, such as big data query script. Each node in the syntax tree is composed of one or more tokens (script portions) that are taken from the query script, which relationships between the tokens being syntactically represented by links between those tokens. Accordingly, the data flow representation may also be a data flow representation of the original query script itself. In order to formulate the data flow representation from the syntax tree, the data types of the various inputs and outputs of the syntax tree nodes are identified and bound to a corresponding data flow. This may be performed whilst honoring dependencies between the nodes. The data flow may be visualized to an author or reviewer of the script.

For such systems, defining a static redundancy configuration for all services is difficult and often biased. Also, it is not feasible to define a redundancy configuration separately for each unique service. Therefore, in the present disclosure a trade-off between the two is ensured by providing At-most M-Modular Flexible Redundancy Model wherein an exact degree of redundancy is defined and is given to each service in a heterogeneous service environment and monitoring each task and subtask status to ensure that each subtask gets accomplished thereby enabling the tuning of the tradeoff between redundancy and cost and determining efficiency of the system by estimating number of resources utilized to complete specific subtask and comparing the resources utilization with the exact degree of redundancy defined.

  • Patent number: 10891159
    Abstract: Activation policies for workflows are described. Some implementations support the configuring of a workflow such that an activity in the workflow can start processing items on which a prior activity's processing is completed, but before the prior activity has completed processing all the items. In addition, this activity can be configured to group the items received so far into a subset and process it according to the action of the activity and then send it to a next activity; and the activity can be configured to repeat this process multiple times using the items that have been received since the previous subset. In some implementations, an input set of items for a workflow is generated from a set of one or more sources, and the workflow is generated by splitting the input set into subsets via a recurring catch and release mechanism that is responsive to activation policies of the activities of the workflow.

  • Patent number: 10893033
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to a computer system accessing a client credential set to authenticate with a destination computer system. A computer system may, subsequent to receiving an indication to make available an application for a particular user, retrieve configuration data specifying a reference to a key value. The computer system may maintain a data object that includes a client credential set for the particular user. In response to an occurrence of an event associated with the application, the computer system may access the client credential set of the particular user from the data object using the key value and an indication of the particular user. The computer system may then send a request including the client credential set to a destination computer system for authentication with the destination computer system and receive a response indicating whether the computer system has been authenticated.

  • Patent number: 10789768
    Abstract: A graphics processing apparatus comprises fragment generating circuitry to generate graphics fragments corresponding to graphics primitives, thread processing circuitry to perform threads of processing corresponding to the fragments, and forward kill circuitry to trigger a forward kill operation to prevent further processing of a target thread of processing corresponding to an earlier graphics fragment when the forward kill operation is enabled for the target thread and the earlier graphics fragment is determined to be obscured by one or more later graphics fragments. The thread processing circuitry supports enabling of the forward kill operation for a thread including at least one forward kill blocking instruction having a property indicative that the forward kill operation should be disabled for the given thread, when the thread processing circuitry has not yet reached a portion of the thread including the at least one forward kill blocking instruction.

  • Patent number: 10606665
    Abstract: Job execution can be scheduled and monitored. Execution of a job results in generation of one or more data slices, which can be consumed as input by one or more related jobs. Data slices can be presented in an interactive view. Selection of a data slice in the view can trigger automatic identification of related data slices based on dependencies between data slices. Each data slice can also include and be presented with a status indicating the availability of corresponding data, such as pending, ready, or failed. Furthermore, selection of a data slice that failed to generate successfully can trigger identification of related data slices that failed or are predicted to fail to generate successfully.
