Table 25-3 pmemtest Command Line Syntax




Specifies the percentage of memory to be tested.

dev=device_nameSpecifies the device to test such as mem.

Determines how many correctable ECC errors occur before they are reported as an error causing pmemtest to report a failure. A value of zero results in no report of any correctable ECC errors. The default is 2.This option is only available on UltraSPARC systems.

bdinfo=number For UltraSPARC servers, indicates board number information. For example, if board 0 and board 5 have memory and you want the test to read the memory on both boards, then bdinfo=33 (2**5+2**0).

When set to -1, pmemtest will test one memory section in each pass, automatically testing each subsequent memory section as testing progresses. When set to a number other than -1, only the section specified will be tested.A section is defined by the pass and instance number settings. This option is only available on UltraSPARC systems.

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".
