SunVTS Diagnostic Test Suite Overview

SunVTS is provided with the Oracle Solaris operating system and can be downloaded for other systems. It can be started from an Oracle Solaris command line, or booted from an ISO image or CD/DVD using Oracle ILOM redirection.

SunVTS provides a comprehensive diagnostic tool that tests and validates Oracle hardware by verifying the connectivity and functionality of most hardware controllers and devices on Oracle platforms.

SunVTS software has a graphical user interface (GUI) that provides test configuration and status monitoring. The user interface can be run on one system to display the SunVTS testing of another system on the network. SunVTS software also provides a TTY-mode interface for situations in which running a GUI is not possible.

The following tests are available in SunVTS:

  • Processor

  • Memory

  • Disk

  • Graphics

  • Media

  • IO ports

  • Interconnects

  • Network

  • Environment

  • HBA
