Telemetry Sources

ASR uses the following telemetry sources to detect fault events on Oracle SuperCluster hardware:

  • Fault Management Architecture (FMA): Provides CPU and memory fault information from the host.

  • Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM): Provides fault information, power and environmental, and CPU and memory fault information from the service processor.

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

  • ZFS Appliance: Provides fault events detected within the systems and disk arrays of the included Storage Appliance.

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