  • Patent number: 10902019
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide custom synchronization procedures in file synchronization. A primary agent is used to monitor for changes, create synchronization plans to synchronized changes, and execute the synchronization plan. The primary agent, however, interacts with one or more separate custom agents to customize the synchronization plans. One exemplary technique involves monitoring for local changes to a first copy of a file tree and updates from another computing device regarding remote changes to a second copy of the file tree. When a change to either copy is identified, a synchronization plan for the change is created based on a default synchronization procedure. The synchronization plan is sent to a custom agent for customization. The custom agent creates the custom synchronization plan by modifying the synchronization plan and sends the custom synchronization plan to the primary agent. The custom synchronization plan is then executed by the primary agent.

    Abstract: In a software testing environment, a test script may be designed to search among outputs of an in-test target application for an expected output element having a specified property. A test execution engine executes the test script, and if such an output is not found, and the test script returns a “fail” result, the test execution engine revises the test script so that rather than searching for the originally specified property, the test script searches for a different property, where the different property is a property that the expected output element was observed to have during a previous execution of the test script. The test execution engine then executes the revised test script and reports its results.

  • Patent number: 10628422
    Abstract: In an approach, a database management system logically partitions a database object (such as a table) across multiple pluggable databases of a container database. When a database server receives a query at an application root, the database server consults a container map which provides a mapping between a set of partitioning criteria and a set of member pluggable databases of the application root. Using the container map, the database server identifies one or more pluggable databases of the set of member pluggable databases of the application root that contain records which potentially have the ability to match the predicates of the query. The database server then limits the execution of the query to the identified pluggable databases, effectively pruning away records contained by the other pluggable databases to increase the efficiency of executing the query.

  • Patent number: 10038616
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to classifying network streams and regulating behavior of the streams based on their respective classes. One technique for managing streams involves analyzing applications, obtaining indicia of features of the applications, and using those features to infer classes to which streams of the applications may be assigned. Another technique involves deploying beacon nodes at the edge of a network. The beacon nodes inform a stream manager about network conditions such as latencies with regard to network boundaries or regions. Another embodiment for facilitating management of streams involves a subscription service for UDP applications. A UDP application may subscribe to the service, which may be provided by an operating system hosting the application. Events are published to any subscribed UDP applications to inform the UDP applications of changes in networking conditions. The UDP applications, in turn, may adapt their internal transmission control logic.
