Processing Node, Computer System, and Transaction Conflict Detection Method

Pub Date: 2018-12-27

Pub Number: US20180373634

A processing node, a computer system, and a transaction conflict detection method, where the processing node includes a processor and a transactional cache. When obtaining a first operation instruction in a transaction for accessing shared data, the processor accesses the transactional cache for caching shared data of a transaction processed by the processing node. If the transactional cache determines that the first operation instruction fails to hit a cache line in the transactional cache, the transactional cache sends a first destination address in the operation instruction to a transactional cache in another processing node. After receiving status information of a cache line hit by the first destination address from the other processing node, the transactional cache determines, based on the received status information, whether the first operation instruction conflicts with a second operation instruction executed by the other processing node.

RESILIENT DOMAIN NAME SERVICE (DNS) RESOLUTION WHEN AN AUTHORITATIVE NAME SERVER IS DEGRADED

Pub Date: 2018-12-27

Pub Number: US20180375716

In one embodiment, a resolution resiliency application modifies domain name service (DNS) resolution. In operation, the resolution resiliency application determines that an authoritative name server has begun recovering from a degraded state or receives a flush list update from the authoritative name server. In response, the resolution resiliency application performs operation(s) that modify a query rate and/or a cache. The query rate specifies a frequency associated with DNS queries transmitted to the first authoritative name server. The cache stores DNS record(s) received from the first authoritative name server. Finally, the resolution resiliency application generates a DNS response to a DNS query based on the modified query rate and/or the modified cache.
