English term or phrase: patrol scrubbing
Hot-plug hard drives, hot-plug redundant power, redundant cooling, ECC memory, Single Device Data Correction (SDDC), supports memory demand, **patrol scrubbing** and high availability failover cluster.

I'm thinking about leaving the term in English and explain its meaning, but there might be a specific term in Spanish that can be more suitable.

There are two types of scrubbing done on memory addresses, Demand and Patrol. Demand is when the operator request for the scrubbing to be done while Patrol is when the process occurs in an undetermined time schedule as the system is not too busy. The scrubbing process is that by which the memory is screened/monitored/verified to detect bad memory blocks. The process will correct memory errors or mark the location as unreadable. This will allow the system to run faster and with fewer errors in data processing.
