Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
8117502 Bisectional fault detection system February 14, 2012
An apparatus, program product and method logically divide a group of nodes and causes node pairs comprising a node from each section to communicate. Results from the communications may be analyzed to determine performance characteristics, such as bandwidth and proper connectivity.
8112658 Row fault detection system February 7, 2012
An apparatus, program product and method check for nodal faults in a row of nodes by causing each node in the row to concurrently communicate with its adjacent neighbor nodes in the row. The communications are analyzed to determine a presence of a faulty node or connection.
8090704 Database retrieval with a non-unique key on a parallel computer system January 3, 2012
An apparatus and method retrieves a database record from an in-memory database of a parallel computer system using a non-unique key. The parallel computer system performs a simultaneous search on each node of the computer system using the non-unique key and then utilizes a global com
7930584 Cell boundary fault detection system April 19, 2011
An apparatus and program product determine a nodal fault along the boundary, or face, of a computing cell. Nodes on adjacent cell boundaries communicate with each other, and the communications are analyzed to determine if a node or connection is faulty.
7852337 Scalable property viewer for a massively parallel computer system December 14, 2010
A method and apparatus for a scalable property viewer for a massively parallel computer system. The property viewer includes a graphical user interface to allow the user to view different properties of the computer system with several different types of views. The different views provide
7840834 Multi-directional fault detection system November 23, 2010
An apparatus, program product and method checks for nodal faults in a group of nodes comprising a center node and all adjacent nodes. The center node concurrently communicates with the immediately adjacent nodes in three dimensions. The communications are analyzed to determine a pres
7826379 All-to-all sequenced fault detection system November 2, 2010
An apparatus, program product and method enable nodal fault detection by sequencing communications between all system nodes. A master node may coordinate communications between two slave nodes before sequencing to and initiating communications between a new pair of slave nodes. The c
7783627 Database retrieval with a unique key search on a parallel computer system August 24, 2010
An apparatus and method retrieves a database record from an in-memory database of a parallel computer system using a unique key. The parallel computer system performs a simultaneous search on each node of the computer system using the unique key and then utilizes a global combining n
7747895 Multi-directional fault detection system June 29, 2010
An apparatus, program product and method checks for nodal faults in a group of nodes comprising a center node and all adjacent nodes. The center node concurrently communicates with the immediately adjacent nodes in three dimensions. The communications are analyzed to determine a pres
7669075 Row fault detection system February 23, 2010
An apparatus and program product check for nodal faults in a row of nodes by causing each node in the row to concurrently communicate with its adjacent neighbor nodes in the row. The communications are analyzed to determine a presence of a faulty node or connection.
7644254 Routing data packets with hint bit for each six orthogonal directions in three dimensional torus January 5, 2010
A method and apparatus for dynamically rerouting node processes on the compute nodes of a massively parallel computer system using hint bits to route around failed nodes or congested networks without restarting applications executing on the system. When a node has a failure or there
7571345 Bisectional fault detection system August 4, 2009
An apparatus and program product logically divide a group of nodes and causes node pairs comprising a node from each section to communicate. Results from the communications may be analyzed to determine performance characteristics, such as bandwidth and proper connectivity.
7529963 Cell boundary fault detection system May 5, 2009
A method determines a nodal fault along the boundary, or face, of a computing cell. Nodes on adjacent cell boundaries communicate with each other, and the communications are analyzed to determine if a node or connection is faulty.
7506197 Multi-directional fault detection system March 17, 2009
An apparatus, program product and method checks for nodal faults in a group of nodes comprising a center node and all adjacent nodes. The center node concurrently communicates with the immediately adjacent nodes in three dimensions. The communications are analyzed to determine a pres
7451342 Bisectional fault detection system November 11, 2008
An apparatus, program product and method logically divides a group of nodes and causes node pairs comprising a node from each section to communicate. Results from the communications may be analyzed to determine performance characteristics, such as bandwidth and proper connectivity.
7437595 Row fault detection system October 14, 2008
An apparatus, program product and method checks for nodal faults in a row of nodes by causing each node in the row to concurrently communicate with its adjacent neighbor nodes in the row. The communications are analyzed to determine a presence of a faulty node or connection.
