Understanding of multi-level fault correlation techniques for NFV fault identification, localization, and root cause analysis.

HT#3 (REL) End-to-End Fault Correlation



What is expected to be learnt from the NFV PoCs

Points to prove/refute

  • What architectural choices for fault correlation exist and what are their benefits?
  • Where (in which components) to place local correlation entities?
  • What are the main limitations?
  • What has been made in the PoC(s) to overcome those limitations?
  • Updates to suggest to NFV architectural framework if any?

Criterion of success

• Fault localization and identification of various challenges on the different layers of the NFV reference architecture within a pre-defined time limits

Technical information to be provided by the PoC Team

  • What faults and challenges on the various levels have been addressed by the PoC?
  • Does the solution require active, passive or hybrid monitoring?
  • What extensions are required for the existing NFV components to propagate fault notifications and alarms for effective fault correlation?

PoC Teams shall follow the HT#3-Feedback Template on their contributions to Hot Topic#3
