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 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.
You can also modify and create scripts, which you can then run using immediate burn-in testing. For details, see Create and Save Scripts (Deferred Burn-in Testing).
The page displays a list of settings and a Burn-In menu.
A text field appears.
This opens the Burn-In Options menu, which enables you to modify the options listed in the following table for the currently loaded test script.
The diagnostics software executes the test script as configured.
