Oracle VTS Software

Oracle VTS is an Oracle hardware validation test that is provided with the Oracle Solaris operating system. The Oracle x86 servers require Oracle VTS 8.2.0 or later. For instructions on running the Oracle VTS software to exercise an Oracle x86 server, see Running Oracle VTS Software.

Oracle VTS provides the following features:

  • Oracle VTS starts from an Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux command line, or boots from an ISO image or CD/DVD using Oracle ILOM redirection.

  • Provides multiple hardware tests to verify the functionality of most hardware controllers and devices for systems based on the Oracle x86 architectures.

  • Provides an infrastructure for developers to develop their own tests and integrate into it.

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

For comprehensive information about Oracle VTS, go to the Oracle VTS 8.2.0 Documentation Library at: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E83848_01/.
