  • Exadata-detected Events (HALRT): Provides fault coverage for disks, flash, and PCI cards within Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

  • Data Center InfiniBand Switch management module: Provides fault coverage for power, memory, storage, and battery. For details about the Data Center InfiniBand Switch, see:
