  • Patent number: 11550680
    Abstract: An illustrative data storage management system is aware that certain data storage resources for storing/serving primary data operate in a partnered configuration. Illustrative components of the data storage management system analyze the failover status of the partnered primary data storage resources to determine which is currently serving/storing primary data and/or snapshots targeted for backup. When detecting that a first partnered primary data storage resource has failed over to a second primary data storage resource, the example storage manager changes the assignment of backup resources that are pre-administered for the targeted data. Accordingly, the example storage manager assigns backup resources, including at least one media agent, that are associated with the second primary data storage resource, and which are “closer” thereto from a geography and/or network topology perspective, even if the pre-administered backup resources are available for backup.

  • Patent number: 11514056
    Abstract: A data request workflow system comprises vehicle operational data. A file delivery request comprises a data request for a subset of the vehicle operational data. A file processing system receives the vehicle operational data and includes at least one set of predefined file editing rules. The file processing system automatically applies at least one set of predefined file editing rules to filter out a predefined sub-set of the vehicle operational data and to automatically edit data that is part of the data request per predefined criteria for each type of vehicle operational data to provide a converted data file to be transmitted to a user that submitted the file delivery request.

  • Patent number: 11494311
    Abstract: A computer system includes physical memory devices of different types that store randomly-accessible data in memory of the computer system. In one approach, access to memory in an address space is maintained by an operating system of the computer system. A virtual page is associated with a first memory type. A page table entry is generated to map a virtual address of the virtual page to a physical address in a first memory device of the first memory type. The page table entry is used by a memory management unit to store the virtual page at the physical address.

  • Patent number: 11474861
    Abstract: This disclosure generally relates to operating systems and methods of computing devices for managing system and function calls. An example method include determining that a fiber is requesting to wait for one or more results of an asynchronous function call, pausing execution of the fiber until the one or more results are completed, enqueuing the paused fiber in a local queue of the one or more results, determining that the one or more results are completed, accessing one or more queued fibers in the local queue of the one or more results. The one or more queued fibers comprise the fiber and resuming execution of the one or more queued fibers, and the asynchronous function call is called by a thread to execute a task without being blocked while the task is being completed.

  • Patent number: 11436231
    Abstract: The technology described herein is directed towards executing continuous query tasks for monitoring a data storage system to obtain real-time metrics and store query results, in which the continuous query tasks are resource-demanding yet need to execute on limited system resources. A continuous query tasks scheduler levels the load produced by scheduling continuous query tasks with starting time offsets based on the period of continuous query tasks and load descriptions for the tasks. Further, a continuous query task that produces too high of a workload is divided into continuous query subtasks, which are scheduled at subtask starting time offsets.

  • Patent number: 11397613
    Abstract: An information handling system may determine that a first process of a list of processes is a top-ranked process and may adjust one or more settings of the information handling system associated with the first process. The information handling system may monitor performance parameters of the information handling system following the adjustment of the settings. Based on monitoring the performance parameters, the information handling system may determine that a performance score of the information handling system is below a threshold performance score and may reduce a ranking of the first process based on the determination. The ranking of the first process may be reduced such that a second process becomes a new top-ranked process. The information handling system may then adjust one or more settings associated with the second process.

  • Patent number: 11356368
    Abstract: Techniques for ensuring that, in the context of network traffic load-balanced across a plurality of service devices connected to a network device, all of the bi-directional traffic between a given pair of hosts residing in different domains is sent to the same service device, where a “domain” is a group of one or more hosts/subnets that is reachable by a service device via an interface of that device. In one set of embodiments, these techniques can include (1) creating a load balancer group on the network device for each domain defined on the service devices, such that the load balancer group for a given domain D includes all of the service device interfaces mapped to D, (2) enabling symmetric hashing with respect to each load balancer group, and (3) synchronizing the hash tables of the load balancer groups such that a given hash bucket (across all hash tables) maps to an interface of a single service device.
