Up One Level



The amount of time a system is down in a given period. This will include crashes and system problems as well as scheduled maintenance work. Obviously, downtime impacts upon system availability, and most IT departments will maintain a downtime log to record when, and why, the system was not available to users. This log should be reviewed at intervals to identify any recurring problems, failure patterns etc.
