I am documenting a piece of software that will be transferred to a customer. The customer will run the software continuously. They may choose to update and improve it, but this is optional.
To keep the software running smoothly, there is a minimum set of upkeep tasks that must be done periodically. Things like checking error logs, testing server uptime, making backups, and so on.
For the document, I want a recognizable term to describe this set of activities. Here are words I thought of so far, which I feel are inadequate:
- Minimum upkeep tasks
- Maintenance mode
- Life support activities
- Bare-bones operation
