We define a “fault” as a special kind of system stall: a period during which applications are asking the server to perform a great deal of work, but that work is getting bottlenecked and therefore not completing.
This understanding of faults is based on Queueing Theory (if you need a refresher on QT, be sure to check out our recent and highly accessible ebook, Everything You Need to Know About Queueing Theory); we detect faults by using advanced statistics and machine learning. VividCortex’s Fault Detection is completely adaptive and self-tuning – it doesn’t require any configuration. The program can detect faults as short as one second in duration. Even the most attentive user would likely fail to notice system stalls so …[Read more]
