Assessing the risk and impact on the system

After you have defined the problem, assess its risk and impact on the StorageGRID system. For example, the presence of critical alarms does not necessarily mean that the system is not delivering core services.

This table summarizes the impact the example problem is having on system operations:

Question Sample response
Can the StorageGRID system ingest content? No.
Can client applications retrieve content? Some objects can be retrieved and others cannot.
Is data at risk? No.
Is the ability to conduct business severely affected? Yes, because client applications cannot store objects to the StorageGRID system and data cannot be retrieved consistently.
