The Question is:

what is ECC single-bit error interrupts?

The Answer is :

  Assuming this is an OpenVMS Alpha system, the Error Checking and
  Correction (ECC) hardware and software is detecting and correcting
  a memory error.  Single-bit errors are detectable and correctable,
  while multibit errors may or may not be.  If this problem report
  persists and particularly at the same memory location -- memory
  errors can be entirely transient -- please contact your hardware
  support organization for assistance.
