The successful completion of batch and online processing is crucial to meeting service level objectives in any data center, yet a surprising percentage of data centers do not routinely collect metrics concerning job failures.

We also break down failure rates by type of failure and provide recommendations for attaining best-practice status. (3 pp., 3 figs.)
