The Faults badge displays the availability and configuration issues for a selected object. Faults are issues with availability and configuration. Each has a severity. The Faults score is the severity of the worst open fault.

The Faults badge value is a score based on the combination of the availability of an object and any configuration issues. A fault score indicates the degree of problems that the object is experiencing. It includes events such as loss of redundancy in NICs or HBAs, memory checksum errors, HA failover problems, and CIM events.

To view the Faults badge, click Environment in the left pane and select the object, click the Analysis tab, and click the Faults tab.
