Fault Management

  • Dinesh Chandra Verma


A fault in the computer system is the failure of a component which prevents the computer systems from operating normally. As the computer system operates, it may experience faults due to a variety of reasons. Each fault would generate some type of alerts or error messages to be reported in the monitoring infrastructure. These monitored alert messages will be stored in the management database that is responsible for fault management.
