For a starter, we illustrate 3 very common error message patterns (red blocks). The illustration of Error Message shows different types of error data visualizations:

The two illustrations of Periodic Error pattern show typical Error Distribution patterns:

We plan to add more such illustrations in the future to this online article and also include them in the forthcoming Memory Dump Analysis Anthology volumes (starting from volume 11).
