Re: memtest

Hi,

why do you want to do an explicit memory test? The normal test will do that too. Have a look at
http://ftp.digital.com/pub/digital/info/semiconductor/literature/srmcons.pdf
and look for the desciption of memtest. There are some examples of how to use it.

greetings,

Re: memtest

Just one information. Once we had a system with problems, memexer (command that test the memory) did not detected any problems, but as you start the system and run some memory intensive application, or a simple backup with the vdump command, the system crashed. So, I won't trust too much in memexer.

Re: memtest

Hass,

Memtest is very critical cmnd, does four difft types (t1 thru t4) of intensive mem tests. To make it work, better we have to supply correct parameters, especially we should specify the section of memory we want to test. The important thing I hope you know is that the memtest command will destroy the data in the specified section of
memory we passed!!!.

Re: memtest

Hass,

Unless otherwise you do research on this error for others, google won't get any good answer for this type of question, see this thread on the same error...
