Indicates the number of consecutive monitor failures to be treated as a resource fault. A monitor attempt is considered a failure if it does not complete within the time specified by the MonitorTimeout attribute.

When a monitor fails as many times as the value specified by this attribute, the corresponding resource is brought down by calling the clean entry point. The resource is then marked faulted, or it is restarted, depending on the value set in the Restart Limit attribute.

Note   This attribute applies only to online resources. If a resource is offline, no special action is taken during monitor failures.

When FaultOnMonitorTimeouts is set to 0, monitor failures are not considered indicative of a resource fault.

Note   The FaultOnMonitorTimeouts attribute is not used on Windows.

Default is 4. The FaultOnMonitorTimeouts attribute value can be overridden.
