The International Business Machines Corporation patent solves the following problem:

The present invention relates to multiprocessing systems. Particularly, the creation of a multiprocessing system that dig greater configuration managers to maintain different profiles on operating characteristics under the units selectively subscribe. Whenever the profile or operating characteristics change, the managers configuration automatically propagate changes to all managed units.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

International Business Machines Corporation’s patent US 6334178 B1 deals with Multiprocessing system with automated propagation of changes to centrally maintained configuration settings.
In a multiprocessing system, dig more configuration managers to continue to profile the operating characteristics of the lower control units selectively subscribe. If the profile or operating characteristics change, the managers configuration propagate the changes to all managed units. Each configuration manager stores a record operating characteristics and multiple server profiles, each profile specifying one or more operating characteristics. A subscription list identifies one or more management units, each associated with one or more server profile. Each unit has to act according to its current operating characteristics, stored in local governance unit. If the unit has received a request subscription profile from a system administrator, the unit has sent a subscription message to the configuration manager to subscribe to the input profile. Acceptance of subscription, the configuration manager to enter into subscription management unit and the associated profile to the subscription list, and return the profiled operating characteristics to subscribe management unit. Subscribe management unit stores in the operating characteristics of his record current operating characteristics. If there is a change in the operating characteristics (or profile), the configuration manager pass changed things all have units with the affected subscriptions. Upon receiving this data, each subscribing control units store the changed operating characteristics of his record current operating characteristics.

The Powerquest Corporation patent solves the following problem:

Computer hard disks and other storage devices computer holds the digital data representing numbers, names, dates, text, pictures, voices, and other information used by businesses, individuals , government agencies, and others. To help organize the data, and for technical reasons, many computer to separate the data drive, partitions, directory, and file. The terms of file and directory familiar to most computer users, and most people agree on their meaning even more details in written definitions vary.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Powerquest Corporation’s patent US 6330653 B1 deals with Manipulation of virtual and live computer storage device partitions.
The present invention provides tools and techniques for manipulating virtual partitions in a virtual engine environment without need to do in each partition manipulation by true again on-disk system structures. A virtual engine, virtual partitions, virtual drives, and other structures around the virtual engine permits users to experiment with different partition manipulations in a safe and orderly manner. A batch manager manager in a results list of partition manipulation operations, to be optimized. The batch list can also be automatically executed in a conventional partition manipulation engine without requiring additional user input at the end of each entry list. The present invention also provides the ability to manipulate the height of partitions automatically and provides support for remote partition manipulation through a two-part user interface architecture.

The International Business Machines Corporation patent solves the following problem:

CMO technology has evolved so that the computer market has rapidly opened to a wide range of consumers. Now multi-media computer used in more than 300 MHz microprocessor with 64 MB main memory. In the near future, the 1 GB micro-processor with a 1 GB main memory become commonplace, suggesting a potentially strong research and development for Giga Hz and Giga-Byte products , particularly, the products use in deep sub-micron technology. Despite the performance, density, and lithograph difficulties, it is more important to integrate circuit (IC) market to offer customers a chip that is very reliable at a competitive cost. To achieve reliable, burn-in testing of the module that was their weak chips to be before they are sent to a customer. Defective chips found in module burn-in often discarded because they are not readily repairable on-chip redundancy replacement form. This results in higher cost module and lost the chip yield.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

International Business Machines Corporation’s patent US 6326800 B1 deals with Self-adjusting burn-in test.
A method and apparatus for providing a self-adjusting burn-in testing a device-under-test by the dynamic management of critical burn-in parameters trials, such as supply voltage, and again trying circumstances, avoid processed surface and the bottom of the burn-in. More specifically, the method includes making an initial set of burn-in operating condition test and repeatedly adjust the burn-in test operating conditions while doing burn-in test to a specified the old faithful target to achieve. The tools described include a tempting target, a tower, and a reliable analyzer, and a burn-in controller. With this system, the number of failed measured during burn-in, and the final number of failed after the completion of the burn-in test extrapolated. If the number of failed surpassing a stated goal faithful, to burn the conditions specified in the burn-in controller decreases, thus avoiding burn-in or the alternatives under-burn.
