fault management

The monitoring of error indications in a computer system in order to log the occurrences and send alerts to system administrators and field service. Fault management software keeps track of hardware faults such as memory parity errors (see ECC memory) and software crashes. The proper analysis of the frequency and type of such errors is intended to initiate a repair order before a total breakdown occurs. See fault and fault tolerant.
