Abstract
This paper presents a research that aims to compare effects of faults on different configurations of computer systems. The study covers comparison of susceptibility to faults of x86, AMD64, ARM, PowerPC, MIPS architectures and Linux, FreeBSD, Minix operating systems. An emulation based software implemented fault injection technique was used to perform experiments. The problem of choosing an adequate number of tests in experiments is followed by report with collected results where multiple aspects of test runs were analyzed: providing correct computation result, availability of the system under test and error messages. The research allows to determine characteristics of susceptibility to faults of each platform and is a first step towards designing new fault tolerance solutions and assessing their effectiveness.
