In computer systems and networks a run book is a set of defined procedures developed by the administrator or IT professional for maintaining the everyday routine, as well as the exceptional operations of the computer system or network. The run book should contain all the information a staff would need to perform daily operations as information on dealing with any problems that arise during usage from the operational system or network. Some procedures defined in an organization’s run book would include procedures for starting and stopping the system, instructions for handling special devices, such as mounting optical disks or tapes, and procedures for how to perform backups, and so on.
- run book automation
Abbreviated as RBA, run book automation refers to technologies used to achieve operational IT efficiency by streamlining run book procedures through automating many of the daily manual tasks. RBA helps organizations by reducing manual tasks which are time consuming and also prone to human-error issues, provides a more efficient workflow through automation, and reduces operational […]
When used in reference to networks, a runt is a packet that is too small to traverse the network. Network protocols such as Ethernet often require that packets be a minimum number of bytes in order to travel the network. Runts are often the result of packet collisions along a busy network or can result […]
Occurring while a program is executing. For example, a runtime error is an error that occurs during program execution and a runtime library is a library of routines that are bound to the program during execution. In contrast, compile-time refers to events that occur while a program is being compiled.
- Runtime Error
(run´tīm er´&r) (n.) An error that occurs during the execution of a program. In contrast, compile-time errors occur while a program is being compiled. Runtime errors indicate bugs in the program or problems that the designers had anticipated but could do nothing about. For example, running out of memorywill often cause a runtime error. Note […]
- runtime version
A limited version of one program that enables you to run another program. To run a program written in Visual Basic, for example, you need the runtime version of Visual Basic. This allows you to run Visual Basic programs but not to develop them yourself. Many other development applications, particularly database applications, require a runtime […]
