A CDE Definition
leaky bucket counter
A fault detection technique that adds "1" to a counter for each operation taken and periodically decrements the counter to keep it from overflowing. If the operation were to occur more times than normal within a short time period, the counter would overflow, causing an alert to be generated. See leaky bucket and fault isolation.
