Reliability of the HADS Processing System

The HADS Processor Program is scheduled to perform 480 times a day. The values presented, as a percentage, depict the actual number of program runs each day divided by the expected number of 480.

A value less than 100% indicates that at some point during the course of the day one or more scheduled executions did not occur.

Reasons for missing executions can vary from system and network outages...to processor cancellations due to a backlog of data induced by attendant communication systems
