Standard Details
This standard will define APIs for fault management. This work will produce APIs which do not rewrite or replace existing POSIX API specifications. The Fault Management extensions to the POSIX specification will comprise APIs for fault detection, fault localization, re-configuration for component isolation, fault recovery, error-logging, notification, and dumps. This work may expand the list of error numbers and conditions which are necessary to support fault recovery. The intent is to provide for the collection and distribution of error information to analyse the errors at the application program level and ultimately provide the means for the application to diagnose and specify corrective actions the scope of this effort will be limited by selecting only those APIs which support functionality which are in common practice. This standard will not change the base standard which it amends
