This paper emphasizes the importance of making field measurements for effective and realistic dependability evaluations. Two examples are given, both based on real data from IBM mainframes. The first evaluates the impact of the operating environment on system failure characteristics and the second shows how an accurate model depicting this interaction can be extracted from real data.
