The check queries  ECC (Error Correcting Code) memory modules to determine whether any errors were corrected during data storage and transmission over the preceding 24 hours, generating an Alert where any event was discovered.

As such this Check is only available where the devices uses ECC memory on an ECC supported motherboard with ECC enabled in the BIOS. In addition to this the edac_mc (Error Detection And Correction _ Memory Controller) kernel module must be loaded in Linux using the modprobe edac_mc command.
