The fault monitor for the zone SMF component verifies that the SMF service is not disabled. If the service is disabled, the fault monitor restarts the SMF service. If this fault persists, the fault monitor fails over the resource group that contains the resource for the zone SMF component.
If the service is not disabled, the fault monitor runs the SMF service probe that you can specify for the component. The value that this probe returns to the fault monitor determines the action that the fault monitor performs. For more information, see Table 4.
