US Patent:
7924829, Apr 12, 2011
Filed:
Apr 30, 2007
Appl. No.:
11/742073
Inventors:
Kevin Lynn Fought - Round Rock TX,
Vinit Jain - Austin TX,
Lance Warren Russell - Rosanky TX,
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
H04L 12/28
US Classification:
370389, 370473, 370474, 370392, 709310, 709330, 709331
Abstract:
A computer implemented method, data processing system, and computer program product for enabling network statistics to be collected per software partition. When an incoming data packet is received at the Internet Protocol (IP) layer of an operating system, the IP address in the incoming data packet is identified. The IP address in the incoming data packet is then compared against IP addresses stored in a hash table, wherein the hash table maps each IP address in the hash table to a software partition of the operating system. If an IP address in the hash table matches the IP address in the data packet, the software partition mapped to the located IP address in the hash table is identified. Network statistics collected for the incoming data packet are then associated with the software partition.

Inventors:
Khalid Filali-Adib - Austin TX,
Kevin L. Fought - Round Rock TX,
Chris A. Schwendiman - Round Rock TX,
David W. Sheffield - Austin TX,
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
G06F 3/00
H04L 29/06
US Classification:
710 8, 713155
Abstract:
An OS instance can maintain management responsibility for SAN adapters to ensure separation and isolation of WPARs, while WPARs are given the capability of configuring an adapter (e. g. , adding endpoint storage devices to the adapter). An operating system instance allocates an adapter to a first of a plurality of virtual operating system instances. The first virtual operating system instance updates a device data structure with an entry that indicates the adapter. The first virtual operating system instance maintains the device data structure. The first virtual operating system instance modifies the entry in the device data structure to associate a set of one or more endpoint storage devices with the adapter. The set of endpoint storage devices are provisioned to the first virtual operating system instance from a storage area network. The first virtual operating system instance configures the set of endpoint storage devices.

Abstract:
Some embodiments of the inventive subject matter are directed to detecting a file that a first instance of an operating system is configured to load where the file is configured to extend functionality of a kernel when loaded. In some embodiments, the first instance of the operating system is managed by a second instance of the operating system (e. g. , the first instance of the operating system is a virtual operating system and the second instance is a global operating system). The first and second instances of the operating system share the kernel. Some embodiments are further directed to generating a unique electronic identifier based on properties of the file. The unique electronic identifier uniquely identifies the file. Some embodiments are further directed to providing a copy of the file to the first instance of the operating system, and some time later, receiving a request from the first instances of the operating system to load the copy of the file. Some embodiments are further directed to determining, using the unique electronic identifier, that the copy of the file from the first instance of the operating system is equivalent to the file.

Apparatus And Method For Storing Data Into Incompatibly Formatted Storage Systems

View page
US Patent:
2003011, Jun 19, 2003
Filed:
Dec 13, 2001
Appl. No.:
10/015241
Inventors:
Kevin Fought - Round Rock TX,
Gerald McBrearty - Austin TX,
Shawn Mullen - Buda TX,
Johnny Shieh - Austin TX,
Assignee:
International Business Machines Corporation - Armonk NY
International Classification:
G06F013/00
US Classification:
711/112000
Abstract:
A method, system and apparatus for storing data into two incompatibly formatted storage systems are provided. When a data is to be stored, it is first determined whether the data is to be stored into the two incompatibly formatted storage systems which are each being managed by a logical volume manager (LVM). If so, the data is forwarded to the two storage systems. In a particular embodiment, when the data is to be stored, one of the two LVMs determines whether the data is to be stored into the two storage systems. If so determined, the LVM that has made the determination passes a copy of the data to the other LVM. The two LVMs then ensure that the data is appropriately stored. When data is to be read from an incompatible storage system, the first LVM will request the data from the second LVM, when the data is received, the first LVM converts the data into an understandable format before the data is used.
