RAMP: Reliability Model

Dependibility Factors

Major factors affecting the computer dependability:

Hardware and software failure rates

System architecture - memory organization (e.g., shared vs. distributed), architecture of the processors (e.g., cache), architecture and protocol used on the communication network

Size of system (e.g., number of processors, buses, etc.)

Task assignment and scheduling algorithms

Recovery algorithm employed
