The Distribution of Residual Life After Tolerable Faults
The probability distribution function of residual life after welldefined tolerable faults is given. Depending on the joint distribution(s) of lives of (a) set(s) of components, ready-to-use formulas are derived. As a non-trivial example a cubic multicomputer tolerating single and some double faults is discussed under the assumption that a ring of 6 computers must be kept active. The cases of nodes consisting of small communications processors with bigger hosts and of nodes being micro computers are considered.
