This chapter describes using the SunVTS software to troubleshoot problems with the Sun Ultra 45 or Ultra 25 workstation. Topics include:

13.1 SunVTS Overview

The Sun validation test suite software, SunVTS, is a comprehensive software diagnostic package that tests and validates hardware by verifying the connectivity and functionality of most hardware components. SunVTS is a system exerciser that you can use to check for intermittent or long-term failures.

SunVTS software executes multiple diagnostic tests from a GUI that provides test configuration and status monitoring. The SunVTS interface can run on one workstation to display a SunVTS test session of another workstation on the network.
