Abstract: A model-based reasoning system for diagnosing faults in a computer network has an information base that stores information about the computer network. This information includes the topology of the network, a class hierarchy containing a component library and diagnostic expertise, and a diagnosis episode. A diagnosis engine receives a pointer to a situation. Each situation includes a focus role and a most general class for the focus role. Based upon this situation, the diagnosis engine creates a diagnosis episode, using the information stored in the information base.
