Objectives This study assessed the validity of self-reported physical work load by questionnaire and logbook against task analysis and observation. It also investigated factors (job type and low-back or neck pain) affecting the self-assessment of physical work load and compared the assessments between the questionnaire and the logbook.. Methods A self-administered questionnaire including 10 questions (ordinal scales) on physical work load and musculoskeletal symptoms was filled out by 2756 men in the forest industry. From this population, 36 men were selected for task analysis and observation. Logbooks including 10 continuous variables were analyzed for 386 men.. Results The Spearman rank correlation coefficients between the self-assessments and observations for the frequency of manual handling, duration of trunk flexion, neck rotation, hand above shoulder level, and squatting or kneeling ranged between 0.42 and 0.55. The correlation coefficients for the questionnaire items were higher in ...
This is the first study to investigate the relationship between acute and chronic workloads and injury risk in elite cricket fast bowlers. We used a performance model14-16 that has previously been described to quantitatively estimate the training preparedness of an athlete by calculating the difference between chronic workload (ie, fitness) and acute workload (ie, fatigue).16 While Banister et al16 stated that preparedness for competition grows as the chronic workload outweighs the acute workload, our results indicate that injury risk increases as the acute workload outweighs the chronic workload. Furthermore, the greater the increase in acute workload relative to chronic workload, the larger the increase in injury risk in the following week. This is highlighted by the threefold and fourfold rises in injury risk for external and internal workloads, respectively, when the training-stress balance exceeded 200%. These findings demonstrate that sudden increases in workload, above which fast bowlers ...

Vitaliy Baklikov and Dipti Borkar explore how DBS Bank built a modern big data analytics stack leveraging an object store even for data-intensive workloads like ATM forecasting and how it uses Alluxio to orchestrate data locality and data access for Spark workloads.
Description of feature: Intel SmartNICs, starting with Cascade Glacier, provide the ability to offload network related workloads from the main processor to get vastly improved throughput. The first use case being addressed through BZ #1629005 & 1659531 is the ability to offload ovs-vswitch onto a SmartNIC attached to a node, and launch a bare-metal instance onto that node. This requirement is to similarly support the launch of VM instances Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): OpenStack Nova version in OpenStack Train release 2. Business Justification: a) Why is this feature needed? As more and more applications get deployed to the cloud, performance becomes a more critical issue, and networking bottlenecks become key inhibitors. SmartNIC-based acceleration is now seen as a cost-effective way to give specific workloads the additional computing resources (through offload onto the NIC) needed to deliver on SLAs, whether in terms of throughput or reduced latencies. In this ...
A workload identifier program works in conjunction with an autonomic manager to calculate a workload representation during a pre-determined interval, calculate a similarity metric for the current work
We were able to combine PCP perception of workload associated with non-face-to-face encounters with the wRVUs associated with face-to-face encounters to calculate a total workload score at the primary care service level for each primary care panel member. Our PCPs indicated the workload required for non-face-to-face activities ranges from 32% to 63% of an office visit for level 3 evaluation and management of an established patient (code 99213). In addition, there was high agreement between wRVUs and PCP survey-generated workload scores where available, suggesting PCPs are able to objectively assess workload. The total PCP site-based non-face-to-face workload was higher than the total PCP site-based face-to-face workload at all CRG health status levels. This is a particularly critical finding given that the scope and frequency of non-face-to-face encounters will likely continue to increase with the proposed Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommendation that complex care management ...
Cloud computing gains an economic edge over a traditional data center when it supports a relatively small simple workload for a huge number of customers. For example, a singular workload like email or a payment service can be fairly optimized at all levels - the operating system, middleware, and the hardware can all be customized and tuned to support the workload. The economics favor this type of workload that support large numbers of customers. The same cannot be said for the poor aging Cobol application that is used by 10 people within an organization. While there might be incremental management productivity benefits, the cost/benefit analysis simply doesnt work.. So, the answer is pretty simple. You just cant throw every workload into the cloud. It is not a panacea for all IT problems. Organizations that are trying to figure out what to do with these pesky old workloads need to look at three options:. 1. Decide if that workload is still supporting business objectives in a cost effective ...
If you only need CPU and memory time series for the workload, you dont need to deploy a ServiceMonitor or PodMonitor because the monitoring application already collects metrics data on resource usage by default.. The steps for setting up monitoring for workloads depend on whether you want basic metrics such as CPU and memory for the workload, or whether you want to scrape custom metrics from the workload.. If you only need CPU and memory time series for the workload, you dont need to deploy a ServiceMonitor or PodMonitor because the monitoring application already collects metrics data on resource usage by default. The resource usage time series data is in Prometheuss local time series database.. Grafana shows the data in aggregate, but you can see the data for the individual workload by using a PromQL query that extracts the data for that workload. Once you have the PromQL query, you can execute the query individually in the Prometheus UI and see the time series visualized there, or you can ...
Athletes who down beet juice before exercising to increase blood flow and improve performance may be surprised at the results of a recent study. While beetroot juice rich in nitrates did not enhance muscle blood flow or vascular dilation during exercise, researchers found that it did de-stiffen blood vessels under resting conditions, potentially easing the workload of the heart. ...

Health union ver.di has suspended its strike action in university hospitals in Düsseldorf and Essen to allow mediators to help resolve the conflict over workloads and staffing (see previous three issues of [email protected]). It agreed to the initiative following the intervention of the labour minister of the North Rhine Westfalia region. Earlier in the year ver.di was successful in negotiating a key agreement on staffing and workloads covering hospitals in Freiburg, Heidelburg, Tübingen and Ulm in the Baden-Württemburg region. The agreement set out a procedure for determining staffing levels in different sections and what should be done when staff numbers fell below the agreed quota. It also committed the institutions to create 120 full-time posts between them and established certain basic rules including a minimum of two workers per night shift one of whom should have at least three years training.. ...
The measurement of the operators workload is an important aspect of usage-oriented design of professional systems. In domains such as avionics, air traffic management or mission systems, being able to quantify the operators workload under stress, and in potentially demanding physical and mental conditions, is mandatory to anticipate overload and prevent human errors. Current approaches to workload estimation rely mainly on experimentation in simulation as an approach that has proven its efficiency for the identification of bad system and/or user interface design. Even if one cannot expect to totally avoid experimenting, given the complexity of the issue of workload computation, a priori estimation of workload might be an interesting tool to pre-validate a design in order to save some time in the experimentation phase and facilitate the analysis of overload situations that appear during experimentation. Various approaches to the a priori measurement of workload have been proposed: ...
A server workload is a way of thinking about the amount of processing a server will have to do in a fixed period of time. The workload can be comprised of things like the amount of programming running in the computer, the number of users connecting to its applications, how much time and processing power those interactions consume, etc.. By calculating the average server workload, you have a benchmark against which you can evaluate different systems. You can assess how easily it should handle the expected workload, which is derived from factors like response time between a user request and the system response, and throughput which is how much work is done in a period of time. Servers are usually assigned an expected workload when they are built. Their performance can then be measured and analyzed over time.. IT teams use different strategies to boost the workload capabilities of the servers in their data centers. Server virtualization has become a popular way to get more usage from existing ...
Faban provides a framework for developing workloads (called the Driver Framework) and a mechanism for run execution and management (called the Harness). We assume that you have already installed faban and gone through the Quick Start Tutorial that shows you how to deploy and run a workload test. This tutorial goes through the steps of creating a workload using faban. Faban is written completely in Java and provides APIs to access the framework. We will use the CoreHttp workload as a starting point and modify it to test a web application that has three pages - a home page (home.html), a products page (products.html) and a contacts page (contacts.html). This workload was used as an example in the Workload Design paper ...
Unlike Vertical Pod Autoscaler, Horizontal Pod Autoscaler does not modify the workloads configured requests. Horizontal Pod Autoscaler scales only the number of replicas.. Custom and external metrics allow workloads to adapt to conditions besides the workload itself. Consider an application that pulls tasks from a queue and completes them. Your application might have Service-Level objective (SLO) for time to process a task, or for number of tasks pending. If the queue is increasing, more replicas of the workload might meet your workloads SLO. If the queue is empty or is decreasing more quickly than expected, you might be able to save money by running fewer replicas, while still meeting your workloads SLO.. Custom metrics and external metrics differ from each other:. ...

Pop quiz: Which elected officials spokesman argued that their workload may not be evident through a simple review of listings on a calendar?
High 1-weekly workloads (≥2770 arbitrary units [AU], OR = 1.63-6.75) were associated with significantly higher risk of injury than in a low-training-load reference group (,1250 AU). When exposed to spikes in workload (acute:chronic workload ratio ,1.5), players with 1 y experience had a higher risk of injury (OR = 2.22) and players with 2-3 (OR = 0.20) and 4-6 y (OR = 0.24) of experience had a lower risk of injury. Players with poorer aerobic fitness (estimated from a 1-km time trial) had a higher injury risk than those with higher aerobic fitness (OR = 1.50-2.50). An acute:chronic workload ratio of (≥2.0) demonstrated the greatest risk of injury. ...

When you start a workload test or click a test result from the Completed Workload Tests page, the Results Dashboard page for the selected workload test run displays. The Results Dashboard page displays a test runs test results. These results provide Key Performance Indicators (KPI) charts (for example, throughput, IOPS, latency) and a comprehensive set of statistics (thousands of statistics per second per Test Port) in real-time as well as post-test, for all workload test runs.. Within each chart, a wrench tool is provided to perform additional drill-drowns to get more detailed results such as IOPS per command, or switch to a different view such as Log view as well as switching between absolute time (aka wall clock time) or relative time (i.e., relative to test start, which is recorded as time 0). Some options are not available for some protocols. ...
A workload identifies a set of components that together deliver business value. The workload is usually the level of detail that business and technology leaders communicate about. Examples of workloads are marketing websites, e-commerce websites, the back-ends for a mobile app, analytic platforms, etc. Workloads vary in levels of architectural complexity, from static websites to architectures with multiple data stores and many components. ...
Nurse workload is not difficult to quantify. The surest sign that workload exceeds the capacity of the resource to deal with it is when you miss out on your tea
Energy-efficiency has been a major challenge in compute systems over the last decade. Both embedded and high-performance computing domains are concerned. Many efforts have been currently spent to devise solutions that are capable of providing systems with the best compromises in terms of performance and power consumption. In this paper, we propose an approach for on-line energy-efficiency analysis when executing OpenMP workloads on multicore systems. The novelty of our approach lies in the ability to monitor energy efficiency at run-time without prior knowledge of the application profile or code annotation. The solution relies on two new metrics: the Chunks per Second (CpS) and Chunks per Joule (CpJ). The former captures the quantity of work achieved by threads per unit time (i.e. a performance indicator). The latter indicates the quantity of work achieved by threads per unit energy, also corresponding to the performance per watt (i.e. an energy efficiency indicator). As most programs are made of

The consultants report acknowledged that MTA workers have faced a historically high workload over the past year, as transportation agencies have taken on major infrastructure projects and service improvement initiatives, like the railroads LIRR Forward plan and the ongoing effort to construct a third track along a 10-mile stretch between Floral Park and Hicksville. The report also suggested the MTAs hiring freeze - aimed at reducing costs - could be driving up overtime expenses.. But the same report concluded that the high absence rate among workers is a product of unjustifiable union work rules and poorly calibrated worker incentives.. As one example, the report explained that because overtime is calculated on a daily, rather than a weekly basis, some workers deliberately miss work on days when they are regularly scheduled and otherwise would have received straight-time pay, and instead take overtime shifts at other times during the week to increase their total pay while working the ...

Hi Yuan, Sheep was started using the standard boot LSB script (/etc/init.d/sheepdog). Im not currently using any additional startup parameters. There are no error entries or any additional entries in sheep.log when this happens. The VM just freezes and you have to force stop it. Once you restart it only shows a new entry in sheep.log again where it does the vm disk lookup.

One of the toughest things for me, when it comes to working, has been the mindload. Thinking all the time, never stopping. Not being present in the now because theres always something new you can do. Theres always a new spin on the record - of an old or a new idea. Living in my inner world in my head.. Mindload is very different than the workload. Workload is the thing you have to do. Mindload is things you have to do + whatever else you can think up to help you achieve the goals for your life. And you can get so caught up, its scary. I noticed how far out I had personally come when it came to focusing on my brain, no focus on my body when I started not being able to sleep at night. I had to think. I had so many ideas and things to do; it made me feel numb most of the time. I had so many worries.. These days, mindload is my friend. So is workload.

More about canteen vending services. Before one can think about canteen vending they have to consider the use of a quality vending machine. Most people fail to appreciate in operating a vending machine in the workplace because they do not understand the benefits it has to you and your employees. One of the things you need to understand about canteen vending is that it helps boost productivity and it is easier to manage canteen vending and that is the more reason why most business are capitalising on this idea. Having canteen vending means that you are giving a more convenient and merriment for your customers and it is more effortless to manage as it helps facilitates budget. At the same time you will reduce the workload on your employees because none of them will need to manage their vending machine at all.. One of the benefits of a vending machine is that it requires no staff. The moment you have a vending machine it means that you are going to cut down on the wages. You dont have to pay any ...
Its certainly a high bar when you pitch for the Dodgers and youre on our roster, Roberts said. These guys are very competitive. They expect a lot from themselves - which they should. But I think, for me, just kind of keeping the lines of communication open, encouraging them to continue to get better each day. The reality is we just dont know how things are going to play out. So I think that right now what we can control and our focus is to keep these guys healthy, continue to build them up as starters and then, once we have to make that decision (about where they fit in), well make it. Over the past eight seasons, the Dodgers have used an average of 12 starting pitchers per season, leaving room for May and Gonsolin to contribute in that role at some point this season. The increased workload on pitching staffs going from 60 games last season to 162 this year could increase those opportunities.
