Starting Oracle VTS Software

You can start the Oracle VTS application with the script startsunvts. The script has a set of options that caters to different choices on how the application needs to be started. There are options to start the application and bring up a user interface that needs user intervention to select and start the tests. Also, there are options that do not bring up any user interface and start the testing without any user intervention.

The startsunvts script gets installed under the /usr/sunvts/bin directory. You can type startsunvts in the terminal to view all the options. If you select any one the options from the menu (d,l,s,m, or A), it prompts you to select yes or no to display the time taken for each logical test (LT) in each pass.

# cd /usr/sunvts/bin
# ./startsunvts
