Table 20-3 m64test Command Line Syntax




device_name is the relative path name of the device being tested with respect to /dev/fbs; The default is m640.


subtest_number is the test number of the subtest to be run. Select from the subtests below. You can run multiple subtests by adding the subtest numbers. For example, n=0x00003 runs both test 00001 and test 00002; n=0x00005 runs both test 0x00001 and test 0x00004. Note that you do not need the leading zeros.

n - 0x00001 VRAM

n - 0x00002 RAMDAC

n - 0x00004 Accelerator port test (Rendering Pipeline)

More than one test can be selected by ORing subtest numbers. For example: n = 0x00005 means VRAM and Rendering Pipeline tests. A hex number must be preceded by 0x, decimal numbers are also acceptable. 


Specifies the number of times to repeat each subtest; the default is 1. 


Specifies the number of times to repeat a test loop before passing; default is 1.

Note -

64-bit tests are located in the sparcv9 subdirectory: /opt/SUNWvts/bin/sparcv9/testname. If a test is not present in this directory, then it may only be available as a 32-bit test. For more information refer to "32-Bit and 64-Bit Tests".
