  • acquiring performance information of the disk by an acquisition unit;

    in response to the performance information, indicating, by the fault diagnosis unit, that one or more performance indicators exceed respective predetermined thresholds, performing the following;

    determining, by the fault diagnosis unit, whether a health of the disk is normal based at least on the one or more performance indicators; and

    determining, by the fault diagnosis unit, the fault location based on health information of one or more elements on a communication path of the disk in response to determining, by the fault diagnosis unit, that the health of the disk is normal, wherein determining the fault location by the fault diagnosis unit avoids unnecessarily determining that the disk is faulty.
