Fault Meets Performance --Comprehensive Infrastructure ManagementPart 1: The Problem
Customers, suppliers, partners and other business needs dominate IT decision making, so when these business partners complain about slow applications or interminable downloads, IT listens – or else.

Fault management technologies keep that trap information in a short-term data store
