Because each test is a separate program, you can run individual tests directly from the command line. When this is done, care must be taken to run the appropriate test (32-bit or 64-bit) that corresponds to the operating system that is running (32-bit or 64-bit). This is done by running tests from specific directories as follows:
The test is an actual 64-bit binary test if testname is a binary file
The test is a 32-bit test capable of running in the 64-bit environment if testname is a symbolic link
The SUNWvtsx package must be installed for 64-bit SunVTS support. For more information on SunVTS packages and installation procedures refer to the SunVTS 3.0 User's Guide.
If you use the sunvts command to run SunVTS, SunVTS will automatically allocate 32-bit or 64-bit tests based on the 32-bit or 64-bit Solaris operating environment that is running. Therefore, the only time that you need to be concerned with the 32-bit or 64-bit operation is when you run the SunVTS kernel or SunVTS tests from the command line.
If you are not sure which operating system is running, refer to the Solaris 7 System Administration manuals. In Solaris 7, the following command can be used to identify the application support of your system.
|# isainfo -v|
The isainfo command is not available in Solaris 2.6 or earlier releases.
