From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "While computing systems used to be solely stand-alone computing systems, modern computing network have enabled for resources to be shared. For instance, corporate networks are now conventionally structured to allow data storage space to be shared amongst multiple users. This removes the requirement that each user has its own individual data storage space. Besides the storage space, the multiple users also share the data Input/Output ('I/O') channel when they instruct the computing system to read or write an electronic file from or to the storage medium including hard disk and flash memory.
"When one of the users submits a request that requires the reading or writing operation of the system, the system processes the request and permits the operation. However, unlike storage space, the data I/O channel is finite and hard to expand. Storage medium manufacturers spend significant efforts on improving the data I/O channel, and developing new storage mediums (e.g., Solid State Disk). Other technology uses hardware modification, such as dual-channel memory, to improve the
Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "At least one embodiment described herein relates to the management of data storage channel utilization in a computing system that has multiple users. The system receives file-level requests from requesters and then creates a history for each requester. Upon evaluating the history of each requester, the system determines whether to delay the file-level requests from entering the file system stack based on the result of the evaluation. The system delays one or more of the file-level requests if the history of the corresponding requester meets one or more criteria. If the history of the corresponding requester does not meet the criteria, the system allows the file-level requests to be passed to the file system stack without being delayed.
"This Summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This Summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter, nor is it intended to be used as an aid in determining the scope of the claimed subject matter."
