It means that the amount of times ECC has been required to get the data off the DIMM has exceeded the threshold and that you have a flakey DIMM, it's a bit like a S.M.A.R.T. error on a disk. Rather than looking at it through SIM or SNMP look at the integrated management log via the systems management homepage on the particular server, then you can see the history easier.


logged with HP and got replacement DIMM from them so 100% fixed now!
