BlockSim 8 Quick Start Guide Chapter 5.0: Dependencies

In this chapter, you will work with two types of dependencies: l) In load sharing configurations, two or more redundant items share the responsibility for keeping the system running properly. If one of them fails, the other(s) can take on an increased "load" so the system can continue to operate. Therefore, load sharing components exhibit different failure characteristics when one or more fail. 2) In standby configurations, the redundant items are set to have two states: an active state and a standby state. Each state has a failure distribution defined. When an item in an active state fails, an item in a standby state is activated to take its place. Learn more about BlockSim:
