Abstract

Error Log Analysis (ELA) is a software tool to aid the product-trained customer engineer (CE) in diagnosing and repairing intermittent computer system failures and consists of four routines and softcopy ELA MAPs (Maintenance Analysis Procedures) that provide to the CE the ability to search the error log, fetch the desired error or errors, analyze the fetched error or errors, and to display statistical data and result codes which indicate the action required to resolve the problem.
