A structured definition of hardware- and software-fault-tolerant architectures is presented. Software-fault-tolerance methods are discussed, resulting in definitions for soft and solid faults. A soft software fault has a negligible likelihood or recurrence and is recoverable, whereas a solid software fault is recurrent under normal operations or cannot be(More)
Reliability growth phenomena are not usually taken into account when performing dependability evaluations of systems during their operational life. However, such phenomena are significantly important. In this paper, an approach is presented which is aimed at the modeling and evaluation of reliability and availability of systems from the knowledge of the(More)
