I heard from several people, with only two options... if anyone has
any other suggestions, I will re-summarize.
First: Tim Carlson <firstname.lastname@example.org> suggested Octave from
(download from ftp://ftp.che.wisc.edu/pub/octave/ )
with the command
Jason M. Feilbach" <email@example.com>
Luis Pablo Perez <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Wade Stuart <Wade.Stuart@osagemn.com>
"Terry Franklin" <email@example.com>
Suggested I use SunVTS. Wade had the best description:
SunVTS is a system testing suite that comes with Solaris and can
be downloaded from Suns website. Your sun reseller should have
been able to tell you about this... =)
I'm using SunVTS on some of these systems now, but this isn't the
ideal solution IMHO. This requires that I copy the directory for
SUNWvts over to the system to be tested. (Though it does not require
the package to be installed...) Also, this only works on Solaris 2.6+
systems. And I can't boot into 2.6 via the net in single user mode
and run the test either.
But SunVTS does seem to give a worthy workout, judging by the system
panics that it caused.
Thanks again for the help,
