Welcome to SFC The Software Forensics Centre is based at the School of Engineering & Information Sciences at Middlesex University. SFC is primarily concerned with: symptoms of failure in software projects patterns of failure learning from failure in software projects using methods for analysing complex systems to predict failure in software projects recording of assumptions during projects feedback, improvement and evolution designing fault-tolerant software projects incremental development and achieving retained value after failure of software project developing narrative methods for analysing failures improving the practice of managing complex projects. The general aim of our work is to improve software development and management practice through empirical work.
Overview Our research focuses on the characteristics of memory hardware errors and their implications on software systems. A plethora of research works can be found on memory fault tolerance. Often times researchers use accelerated tests in their controlled environments to collect data.
In order to enable open computer science research access to computer operational data is desparately needed. Data in the areas of failure, availability, usage, environment, performance, and workload characterization are some of the most desparately needed by computer science researchers. The following sets of data are provided under universal release to any computer science researcher to use to enable computer science work. All we ask is that if you use these data in your research that you recognize Los Alamos National Laboratory for providing these data. The first set of data was made available in 2005 for times spanning 1995-2005, an update is being made available that adds 2005-09/2011 failure data
