I want to know how openstack address fault tolerance with respect to VM.

1) If a VM is about to go down due to load exceed or some other issue, How nova will handle this(will it launch new VM automatically with the same state of First VM)

2) Weather we need to enable any other component to achieve this feature.

Thanks in advance

No Openstack is an IAAS so it will not launch a new instance or do any modification to the instance which is failing.

You need to setup automation using Monitoring and Heat. It is a complex task not so easy.
