  • Patent number: 11500532
    Abstract: In an electronic device capable of running multiple software applications concurrently, applications, documents, cards, or other activities can be selected for hibernation so as to free up system resources for other activities that are in active use. A determination is made as to which activities should hibernate, for example based on a determination as to which activities have not been used recently or based on relative resource usage. When an activity is to hibernate, its state is preserved on a storage medium such as a disk, so that the activity can later be revived in the same state and the user can continue with the same task that was being performed before the activity entered hibernation.

  • Patent number: 11164275
    Abstract: Embodiments provide approaches to selectively integrate with various providers based on reliability factors, user preferences, and/or other criteria. For example, a user in a location where an on-demand provider is available may attempt to utilize services provided by the on-demand provider in a different location where the on-demand provider has limited or no services available, but where one or more other on-demand providers may be available. The user may attempt to access services provided by the on-demand provider using an application provided by the on-demand provider. However, in the situation where the user is in the location where services provided by the on-demand provider are not available, the user would have to secure other means of accessing those services. In such a situation the user may be able to utilize the application to request services with at least one partner on-demand provider.

    Abstract: In an embodiment, an operating system for a computer system is built on a set of capabilities. Each capability includes at least one pointer to a function that implements the capability. One or more actors are defined which use one or more of the capabilities, and which may be connected to other actors for communication through channels. The channels may be created and maintained by a channel actor. In an embodiment, one or more actors may be assembled to create a composed actor. The actors within the composed actor still communicate over the channels defined between the internal actors, but may pass channel identifiers for actors outside the composed actor, so that the actors within the composed actor communicate with the outside actors as if they were one single actor. Arbitrarily complex actors may be formed in this fashion, while still maintaining the stability and safety of the initial actors.

  • Patent number: 10732865
    Abstract: A hardware-assisted Distributed Memory System may include software configurable shared memory regions in the local memory of each of multiple processor cores. Accesses to these shared memory regions may be made through a network of on-chip atomic transaction engine (ATE) instances, one per core, over a private interconnect matrix that connects them together. For example, each ATE instance may issue Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs), with or without responses, to an ATE instance associated with a remote processor core in order to perform operations that target memory locations controlled by the remote processor core. Each ATE instance may process RPCs (atomically) that are received from other ATE instances or that are generated locally. For some operation types, an ATE instance may execute the operations identified in the RPCs itself using dedicated hardware. For other operation types, the ATE instance may interrupt its local processor core to perform the operations.

Instances in the pool may be terminated when frequency of occurrence patterns of the event with a corresponding function indicate the event is occurring less frequently such that fewer instances are required to execute the corresponding function. Otherwise, the events are dispatched to the appropriate instance in the pool for execution.

  • Patent number: 10102373
    Abstract: The present application discloses a method and apparatus for capturing an operation, and security control in a container-based virtualization system. A specific implementation of the method for capturing the operation includes: detecting, in a user mode, a process launch operation in a container of the container-based virtualization system; and performing, in a kernel mode, a step of capturing a signal processing operation, if the process launch operation is detected, the step of capturing the signal processing operation comprising: determining a presence of an unprocessed signal in the process; causing an executable instruction indicated by the unprocessed signal to jump to an entry address of a self-defined first function, and passing a signal number of the unprocessed signal to the first function, if the unprocessed signal exists; and capturing a signal processing operation corresponding to the passed signal number, if the first function is called.

  • Patent number: 9876878
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to progressively migrating source computer nodes where the source computer nodes perform a computer-implemented service. In one embodiment, a computer system determines that execution of the performed service is to be migrated from the source computer nodes to target computer nodes. The computer system groups the source computer nodes into multiple source subgroups, where each source subgroup includes at least one source computer node. The computer system then schedules creation of target subgroups of target nodes. These target subgroups include at least one source computer node and, themselves, correspond to a source subgroup. The computer system activates a first target subgroup corresponding to a first source subgroup, and deactivates the first source subgroup. In this manner, the first target subgroup replaces the first source subgroup. Still further, the target subgroups are scheduled to be created only after the first source subgroup has been deactivated.

    Abstract: A system integrator for modeling an object instance of a COBOL data set, the object instance including representations of OCCURS DEPENDING ON clauses or REDEFINE clauses. The system comprises a client interface module, an import module, an object model module and modeler module. The client interface module generates an interface and receives a copybook selection and a set of REDEFINE criteria. The import module receives the copybook selection and imports a copybook from a database. The object model module receives the copybook and the set of REDEFINE criteria, and creates a customized object model for the copybook. The modeler module receives the customized object model and a set of COBOL data, and forms an object instance equivalent to the set of COBOL data, the object instance including representations of a OCCURS DEPENDING ON clause or REDEFINE clause.
