Description

FIELD

The present disclosure relates to the fields of system resource allocation, more particularly, relating to system resource allocating method and system based on account activity level.

BACKGROUND

With the development of Internet technologies and the gradual increase in the number of network users, the number of user accounts controlled by an Internet application system gradually becomes huge, which also causes various problems on the Internet application system. For example, user information services (user login, information inquiry and modification, user business processing, etc.) are slow in response speed, user management costs (hardware servers, softwares, etc.) increase, and so on. These problems directly influence customer experiences of the Internet application system.

As for the Internet application system regarding finance, e-commerce, social contact, etc., there are high demands in transaction/communication real-time performance and highly concurrent processing performance. However, in the traditional user account information management method, the user account information management method without a difference in response processing is adopted, which cannot meet the requirements of quick response for the users who operate or transact frequently, but increases the cost of performing system management on the account information of the users with low account activity level, without satisfying the application requirements of ever-growing user account scales and user transaction/communication request volumes.

With continuous developments of online banking and electronic banking, taking an application system of Chinese Construction Bank (CCB) as an example, its number of users managed thereby is rapidly increasing. In terms of the current status of a personal user account, there exists a large number of inactive “dormant accounts” in each application system, which is a tremendous waste for the user account information management resources; meanwhile, in the context of canceling petty account management charges, it is becoming important problems necessary to be solved currently how to reasonably integrate and manage the inactive “dormant accounts” and frequently-used “active accounts” and how to further improve the customer experience of the user management on the premise of controlling the user management costs.

SUMMARY

In view of the above defects in the prior art, some embodiments of the present disclosure provide a system resource allocating method and device based on account activity level, which may allocate the appropriate system resources to users with different activity level in a targeted manner, thereby increasing the usage efficiency of the system resources as a whole, lowering the management costs and improving the user experience.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS

For the convenience of understanding each aspect, feature and advantage of the technical solution of the present disclosure, the present disclosure will be described in detail in connection with drawings below. It shall be understood that each following embodiment is only used for illustrating, instead of limiting the protection scope of the present disclosure.

FIG. 1A is a schematic flow chart of the system resource allocating method based on account activity level according to some embodiments of the present disclosure. With reference to FIG. 1A, the method includes the processing as follows.

Processing 10: account activity level calculation. Specifically, an account activity level parameter of each user is acquired and an account activity level of each user is calculated according to the account activity level parameter of the user.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, the account activity level parameter of the user includes any one or more of the following parameters: number of times of successful logins of a user, member level of the user, user points, number of times of the user modifying a member information, a user browsing page PV, number of times of transactions of the user, a transaction amount of the user, an average amount of each transaction of the user, and an account balance of the user. These parameters may be acquired by monitoring and recording the user behaviors within a specified time (for example, periodically) and reading from a relevant system.

Processing 12: account activity level rank division. Specifically, an account activity level rank of each user is determined according to the account activity level of the user and a preset account activity level rank dividing manner.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, the account activity level rank of each user may be determined according to the account activity level of the user and a preset account activity level rank dividing threshold. In another implementation of the present embodiment, the account activity level rank of each user may be determined according to the account activity level of the user, the preset account activity level rank dividing threshold and a preset maximum number of users for each rank. The explanation of the two specific implementations will be mentioned hereinafter, without detailed descriptions here.

Processing 14: an account activity level index establishment. Specifically, the account activity level index of each user is established according to a user number, the account activity level and the account activity level rank of the user. As a result, the account activity level and the account activity level rank of the user may be determined according to the user number of the user. Subsequently, it is possible to perform the resource allocation according to the determined account activity level or the account activity level rank.

Processing 16: resource allocation processing. When information processing is to be performed on a target user, system resource for performing the information processing is allocated to the target user according to the account activity level index of the target user.

In the present embodiment, the target user refers to the user who triggers a relevant system such that the relevant system may process its information. The relevant system may be different systems in different application scenes. For example, in the fields of finance, e-commerce or the like, the relevant system may be a system for taking charge of processing such as user login, information inquiry and modification, business processing, and so on. The system resources includes one or more of CPU resource, memory, cache, storage space, etc., and further includes a priority of the user data processing in case of concurrent processing, that is, in case of highly concurrent processing of the system, there is a limit in the CPU running speed and memory, and the relevant information or data of the user with higher priorities are processed preferentially.

With the method provided by the present embodiments, by means of establishing the account activity level index by a series of processing performed on the account activity level and allocating the resource for performing the information processing to the target user according to the account activity level index of the target users, on the one hand, it may provide more and better system resources for the users with high activity level, which in turn may improve the response speed of the application system to the user with high activity level; on the other hand, it may reduce management costs including hardware server costs and software usage costs on the premise of not influencing the system availability, by means of allocating the idle system resources to the users with low activity level. In summary, with the method provided by some embodiments, it may allocate appropriate system resources to the users with different activity level in a targeted manner, thereby increasing the use efficiency of the system resources as a whole, lowering the management costs and improving the user experience.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, in the processing 10, the account activity level parameters of the user within a specified time period may be collected in advance, and then the account activity level of each user within the specified time period may be calculated according to the formula

φ(x)=i=1mδiαi(x),

wherein, x is the user number, m is a total number of the account activity level parameters, αi (x) is a normalized parameter value of the ith account activity level parameter of the user whose user number is x, δ1 is an calculation weight of the ith account activity level parameter.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, in the processing 12, the preset account activity level rank includes the rank A1, A2, A3, . . . , An, whose respective corresponding account activity level sections are:

A11≤φ(x); A222≤φ(x)<φ1; . . . ; Ann≤φ(x)<φn-1.

The above φ1, φ2, φ3, . . . , φn are the preset account activity level rank division thresholds. In the processing 12, the account activity level of each user is sorted and ranked according to the account activity level rank division thresholds φ1, φ2, φ3, . . . , φn, to realize the allocation of ranks A1, A2, A3, . . . , An.

Further, new user may be set with an initial account activity level φnew having an adjustable value, so as to divide the account activity level ranks.

Optionally, in another implementation of the present embodiment, taking the limitation of the allocable resources of each account activity level rank into consideration, it is also possible to set a maximum number of users Umax (Ai), i=1, 2, . . . , n for each of the account activity level ranks A1, A2, A3, . . . , An. When the number of users to be allocated for the rank Ai is greater than Umax (Ai), the user after Umax (Ai) has priority to be allocated to the next rank, circulating in this way until all the users finish the rank division. Exemplarily, FIG. 1B shows the schematic diagram of the account activity level index established in the processing 14. The user information in the rank A1 includes the user number and its corresponding account activity level.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, in the processing 14, when the account activity level index of each user is established, it is also possible to generate an account activity level report of each user. In this way, it is possible to subdivide the users according to the account activity level report of each user, which contributes to increasing the accuracy of the business marketing.

Optionally, in one implementation of the present embodiment, with reference to FIG. 1C, the processing 16 may be specifically realized in the following way.

Processing 160: determining the account activity level rank of the target user according to the account activity level index of the target user. For example, the account activity level of the target user is determined by making an inquiry according to the user number of the target user.

Processing 162: allocating the corresponding resource to the target user according to the account activity level rank of the target user. Preferentially, the users corresponding to different account activity level ranks may be provided with different system resources. Of course, it is also possible to adopt the following manner to realize the processing 162. If the account activity level rank of the target user is higher than a preset reference rank, cache is allocated to the target user, and a preferential use right of system resource is provided for the target user; if the account activity level rank of the target user is lower than the reference rank, the idle system resource is allocated to the target user.

In one specific application scene of the present implementation, taking the user account information management system as an example, the user account information management system may be deployed into a single server or a server cluster system. When the target user launches a request to the user account information management system, the user account information management system may allocate the cache to the target user, whose account activity level rank is relatively highly (for example, corresponding to the rank A1), to perform rapid response processing within the highly concurrent time, and provide him or her with the preferential use right of the system resource; whereas the user account information management system may provide the target user whose the account activity level rank is relatively low, with the idle resource for response processing.

The method examples and its implementations of the embodiments of the present disclosure are explained above in connection with drawings, and the device examples of the embodiments of the present disclosure will be explained below in connection with drawings.
