An interactive system is provided to help an operator locate the source of a data fault in an Asynchronous Transfer Mode ATM network. A database stores information related to data types and subsystems used by the ATM network. A processor coupled to the database uses the information stored therein to formulate a series of queries related to a selected one of the subsystems using the data type experiencing a data fault. The series of queries have a hierarchal order that sequentially inquire about operational status of the various subsystems having a relationship with the data type experiencing the data fault. A graphical user interface GUI coupled to the processor displays each query in accordance with the hierarchal order thereof. The GUT simultaneously displays identification of the various subsystems having a relationship with the data type experiencing the data fault.
