    In logical partitioning environments that use paravirtualization, the HCA device driver has to work in synch with the hypervisor to perform all the operations required to manage an adapter resource. Certain OS critical functions such as workload management and work-queue entry (WQE) processing may require access to...

    Described is a mechanism to notify an OS about HCA adapter state changes in a logical partitioned environment. These events are associated with the state of the adapter itself and must be reflected to the OS by the hypervisor in order to maintain RAS features and logical partition isolation. The mechanism is comprised...

    Optimizing executable code is typically performed using a runtime profile of the code. Different optimization techniques are available, like inlining and code restructuring. However, they all must transform the code to functionally equivalent form. Failing to do so has unpredicable consequences, typically a...

    In order to make it possible to supply an optimal quantity of compressed air to a super-charged internal combustion engine, the compressed air is cooled in an intercooler before it is directed to the internal combustion engine. Usually, the compressed air is cooled by means of surrounding air streaming through the...
