Unfortunately i remember hearing the term but not where. the only online references i could find were (mainley) military and they refer to parts that could be replaced by the pilot/driver quickly in hte field.

From this i would guess that in IT it woul be a Hot-Swappable device (hot swap drive,psu,pci card etc)

Sorry i couldn't help more

LRU is the common military term for "Lowest Replaceable Unit". It is usually associated with replacing circuit cards, modules and "black boxes" that the technician is qualified to repair.

LRU stands for least recently used. It refers to the use of cache. As data is stored in the cache it is stamped with a time. As the cache fills it removes the least recently used data to make room for new data. This is a very basic explaination, butone wich should make some sense to you.

Line Replaceable Units is the lowest replaceable unit in any equipment that a technician is qualified to work on. Unless you are working on equipment that is so old you can not get replacement parts(ie circuit cards, etc) and have to troubleshoot down tocomponet level. It is usually associated in the military with comunications and navigations equipment.
