Short Description: Overwrite Fault Analyze Percentage


Fault Analyzer is an aspect of the Automatic Diagnostic Collection that allows client and server crashes that occur at customer sites to be automatically matched against known crashes to determine if there are any matches. If the crash results from a known issue that is fixed in a release subsequent to that at the customer site, IBM/Lotus provides the optional configuration to download the upgrade kit into the Smart Upgrade database to enable the user to upgrade to resolve the problem.

The formula used to determine a partial match between the two stacks depends on the average length of the stacks. If the average stack length is:

< 4 -- 100% (exact match)
4 -- at least 75% of the stack has to match
5 -7 -- at least 60% of the stack has to match
> 8 -- at least 40% of the stack has to match

However, this can be overidden by using the Fault_Analyzer_Match_Percentage .ini variable, which applies the specified percentage to the number of matching function names in the two stacks, regardless of average stack length.

You can set this to a number between 1 and 99. If you use this setting, it applies to all partial matches, regardless of the average stack length.

UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
