Title (EN) COMPUTER HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE DIAGNOSTIC AND REPORT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE DIAGNOSTIC ET DE RAPPORT DE MATERIEL ET DE LOGICIEL INFORMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention tests computer systems for defects that are able to cause performance and functional problems. An agent application is first installed on a user's system. The agent application then retrieves problem data from the expert system library pertinent to the user's operating environment. The agent application tests the user's system for each problem description within a downloaded data structure from the expert system library. If a problem is discovered, a script attempts to remediate the problem and/or notifies the user, describing the issue. If an unknown problem arises, a feedback mechanism sends a notification to the expert system library that a problem was discovered. The feedback is then utilized to increase the total knowledge in the expert system library. Then when another user with a similar or the same setup is tested, the agent application will recognize the issue and will take the appropriate remedial actions.
(FR) Selon cette invention, il convient de tester des systèmes informatiques afin de déceler des défauts pouvant provoquer des problèmes fonctionnels et de performance. Une application agent est d'abord installée sur un système utilisateur. L'application agent extrait ensuite des données de problème de la bibliothèque de système expert correspondant à l'environnement d'exploitation de l'utilisateur. L'application agent teste le système utilisateur pour chaque description de problème dans une structure de données téléchargée de la bibliothèque de système expert. Si un problème est découvert, un script tente de remédier au problème et/ou avise l'utilisateur en décrivant le problème. Si un problème inconnu survient, un mécanisme de rétroaction envoie une notification à la bibliothèque de système expert indiquant qu'un problème a été découvert. La rétroaction est ensuite utilisée pour augmenter la totalité des connaissances dans la bibliothèque de système expert. Ensuite, lorsqu'un autre utilisateur présentant la même configuration ou une configuration similaire est testé, l'application agent peut reconnaître le problème et prendre les actions appropriées pour y remédier.
