Project Overview

The Hardware Fault Management subproject’s goal is to address the Large scale data center pain-points in managing hardware faults effectively.

Objective of the subproject: to define hardware fault management solution such that it:

  • Minimizes performance degradation
  • Reduces No Trouble Found (NTF) in RMA
  • Scales the solution across heterogeneous fleet

Activities of the sub-project include:

  • Develop running list of pain-points related to HW fault handling in the fleet
  • Develop hardware fault management solution best practices to address the above pain-points
  • Hardware Error reporting format Standardization
  • Define hardware error classification
  • OCP Fault Management Infrastructure Proposal
  • Standardizing system behavior under hardware failures (future topic)
  • Provide reference and guidance on system hardware failure management (future topic)
