9. Root Cause Analysis (RCA)

Engage with the pros from Perforce to dive into the root cause of issues that may be causing Helix Core server delays, database and journal corruption, crashes, or other issues in your environment. This is much more than troubleshooting provided in your standard Support contract. Through a Root Cause Analysis (RCA) project, we will work closely with you to explore and uncover the core reasons for your issues.

The Helix Core Support team at Perforce is there for you when you have a specific problem or challenge to overcome. We work with you to identify the technical cause, which is the event responsible for the reported problem, and may provide a workaround, relevant documentation, or a resolution to restore affected Helix Core products to their operational state. Once resolved, to help prevent issues in the future, you may want to determine the root cause of why the problem occurred in the first place.

This type of project and analysis goes beyond Support and requires more in-depth exploration to attempt to discover the core reason for your issues. We call this RCA. This service includes a written report detailing the problem, root cause, corrective recommendations, and preventative actions determined from the RCA.

Although RCA is not a standard component of your Support plan, we offer convenient pre-paid RCAs as a supplement to your plan — and at a discount off our full-price hourly consulting rate. You can purchase these pre-paid RCAs together with your initial Helix Core Support contract or at renewal.

  • We offer pre-paid packages for 1 and 5 RCAs.

For further details, please see Helix Core RCA brochure.

If you would like to purchase RCA pre-paid packages, please discuss with your account team.
