"System and Method for Processing Load Balancing of Graphic Streams" in Patent Application Approval Process

May 15, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Politics & Government Week -- A patent application by the inventors Lai, Alexander I-Chi (New Taipei City, TW); Yu, Pei-Ling (New Taipei City, TW), filed on July 9, 2013, was made available online on May 1, 2014, according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by VerticalNews correspondents.

This patent application has not been assigned to a company or institution.

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The present invention relates to a method and system for processing load balancing of graphic streams, and in particular, to a method and system for processing load balancing of graphic streams between a server device and a client device.

"Currently, information technology (IT) is driving the consolidation of computing infrastructures on servers, creating fully virtualized data centers with integrated provisioning facilities. In a fully virtualized data center, a virtual machine (VM) and a hypervisor are configured inside a server. The virtual machine runs operating systems and applications. The hypervisor is a virtual machine monitor or virtualization platform that allows multiple operating systems to run on a host computer at the same time. As several visualization-related workloads require 2D/3D graphics hardware acceleration, the cost and the power consumption of an engine room in the cloud are increased if all 2D/3D graphics operations are processed by the server device. If all the 2D/3D graphics operations are processed by the client device, the processing capacity of the client device must be taken into account.

"Therefore, there is a need for a method and a system for processing load balancing of graphic streams that can dispatch the 2D/3D graphics operations to the server device and the client device."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "A detailed description is given in the following embodiments with reference to the accompanying drawings.

"Methods and systems for processing load balancing of graphic streams are provided.

"In one exemplary embodiment, the disclosure is directed to a method for processing load balancing of graphic streams, used in a system, wherein the system includes a server device and a client device, and the method includes: receiving, by a virtual machine of the server device, a graphic with a plurality of objects and graphic capability information; dispatching, by a dispatcher of the server device, the plurality of objects according to the graphic capability information; receiving, by a server graphic processing unit (GPU) of the server device, a first group of objects dispatched by the dispatcher, and transforming the first group of objects into a first video stream; receiving, by a virtual desktop viewer of the client device, a second group of objects dispatched by the dispatcher; transforming, by a client graphic processing unit (GPU) of the client device, the second group of objects into a second video stream; and rendering, by a virtual desktop viewer of the client device, the first video stream and the second video stream.

"In one exemplary embodiment, the disclosure is directed to a system for processing load balancing of graphic streams. The system includes a server device and a client device. The server device includes a virtual machine, a virtual graphic processing unit (GPU), and a server graphic processing unit. The virtual machine is configured to receive a graphic with a plurality of objects and graphic capability information. The virtual graphic processing unit (GPU), coupled to the virtual machine, includes a dispatcher. The dispatcher, coupled to the virtual machine, is configured to dispatch the plurality of objects according to the graphic capability information. The server graphic processing unit, coupled to the virtual graphic processing unit (GPU), is configured to receive a first group of objects dispatched by the dispatcher, and transform the first group of objects into a first video stream. The client device, coupled to the server device, includes a virtual desktop viewer and a client graphic processing unit. The virtual desktop viewer is configured to receive a second group of objects dispatched by the dispatcher. The client graphic processing unit is configured to transform the second group of objects into a second video stream. After transforming the first group of objects and the second group of objects into the first video stream and the second video stream, respectively, the server graphic processing unit and the client graphic processing unit transmit the first video stream and the second video stream to a virtual desktop viewer to render the first video stream and the second video stream.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

"The present invention can be more fully understood by reading the subsequent detailed description and examples with references made to the accompanying drawings, wherein:

"FIG. 1 is an architecture schematic view illustrating a system for processing load balancing of graphic streams according to one embodiment of the present invention;

"FIGS. 2A-2B are block diagrams of a system for processing load balancing of graphic streams according to an embodiment of the present invention;

"FIG. 3 is a flow diagram illustrating the method for processing load balancing of graphic streams according to an embodiment of the present invention; and

"FIGS. 4A-4B are examples for processing load balancing of graphic streams according to an embodiment of the present invention."
