exception handling

(redirected from Exception condition)

exception handling

[ek′sep·shən ‚hand·liŋ]
(computer science)
Programming techniques for dealing with error conditions, generally without terminating execution of the program.
(control systems)
The actions taken by a control system when unpredictable conditions or situations arise in which the controller must respond quickly.

exception handling

The ways in which an application responds to abnormal conditions, such as a divide-by-zero calculation or other type of irregular processing. Built into the programming language or the hardware itself, exception handling is generally resolved without the user's knowledge, although that is not always the case. Contrast with "error handling," where routines written by the programmer are able to inform the user of erroneous input or other irregular conditions. See error handling.

Here is how it works: the utility defines a system exception condition with the analytics templates; next the utility decides which accounts to monitor for the exception condition; then they decide who to alert when there is an exception and how (to-do list, email, SMS text, or system dashboard): ReadCenter Analytics continually monitors incoming system data for the exception condition and then notifies the appropriate personnel when it occurs; utility personnel can then decide what action to take.

It can also be useful to have SAS/SATA traffic generators that allow the user to take full control over the protocol and verify that the host or device can handle various exception conditions. The oscilloscope should preferably be a 4+ GHz real-time scope, but a repetitive sampling scope with 4+ GHz bandwidth can also be used.

The system alerts administrators to exception conditions, tracking data entry errors, compliance issues and possible training deficiencies.
The SLA must identify potentially dangerous exception conditions, like a router suddenly doubling its level of activity, or a particular server rapidly increasing its output of files onto the network--or alternatively, maybe that a user is conducting some unauthorized activity that needs to be nipped in the bud.
