    HPE remote support technologies monitor a customer’s hardware environment for service events that require action from the HPE Authorized Service Partner or customer. For the most part, actionable service events require replacing a failed Field Replaceable Unit or Customer Replaceable Unit in the monitored hardware. Non-actionable events are filtered out, and actionable service events are forwarded to HPE. HPE remote support technologies monitor hardware for hard failures from a major component on the hardware such as CPU, disk, memory, and power supply, and these will trigger a service event communication to HPE. In addition, HPE remote support technologies monitor hardware for soft errors, and in some instances, when the number of soft errors exceeds a specific threshold, an event is sent to HPE. Further details regarding what classifies as an actionable service event is HPE confidential information.
