Oracle provides three ready-made scripts designed to test the general health of the devices on your system. These scripts include:
This script performs a series of tests that require you to interact with the test software. When they require a user interaction, they stop and do not time out. These tests are faster than the full.tst, but they are less thorough. For example, they do not run all the tests associated with a DIMM.
This script performs a non detailed test of most hardware components, excluding those components that require user input (keyboard, mouse, sound, and video). This test does not require user input. It is normally the first test performed for hardware-related problems.
This script performs a detailed and comprehensive test on all hardware components, including those that require user input. It includes external port tests and requires loopback connectors on COM ports, parallel ports, and USB ports. You must interact with the test utility to progress through these interactive tests.
