PREVENTING TRANSMISSION OF DUPLICATIVE NOTIFICATIONS TO MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS ON A CLIENT DEVICE

Pub Date: 2019-08-22

Pub Number: US20190260601

A system prevents user-activity events from triggering transmission of duplicative notifications to multiple applications. The system may receive subscriptions for notifications from multiple applications installed on a single client device. Trigger criteria for the applications' subscriptions overlap such that a single user-activity event may satisfy trigger criteria for multiple subscriptions. The system receives event data that indicates when a user-activity event has satisfied trigger criteria for the multiple subscriptions associated with the client device. Rather than indiscriminately transmitting duplicative notifications, the system selects individual satisfied subscriptions to fulfill. Thus, when subscriptions are satisfied for multiple different applications on a single client device, the system may deploy a subscription prioritization engine to select a single one of the multiple different applications to transmit a notification to. Stated alternatively, for individual user-activity events, the subscription prioritization engine determines a subset of satisfied subscriptions to fulfill and to refrain from fulfilling.

PREDICTING CAPACITY OF SHARED VIRTUAL MACHINE RESOURCES

Pub Date: 2019-08-22

Pub Number: US20190258527

Predicting capacity of shared virtual machine (VM) resources by generating estimated remaining capacities (ERCs) for computing clusters within a virtualization system rather than continuously monitoring actual remaining capacities (ARCs). Generating ERCs for a virtualization system's computing cluster(s) by using physical resource allocation flux data and/or VM type exchange probabilities provides benefits over continuously monitoring ARCs. The physical resource allocation flux data may correspond to commissioning and decommissioning VMs into the cluster and may be obtained during a blind period when current ARCs are unknown. For example, the physical resource allocation flux may be an indication of how many instances of each VM type are commissioned and/or decommissioned from the cluster over a time interval of interest. The VM type exchange probabilities may indicate a likelihood that commissioning or decommissioning a VM type into the computing cluster(s) will take up or free up computing resources available to other VM types, respectively.
