I still haven't come across a good memory testing application. Many
people suggested SunVTS (Sun Validation Test Suite) which is available at
the following URL:
Many people replied saying SunVTS is on the Solaris CD as package
"SUNWvts" but I was unable to find it on there. I'm not sure if this is
because I have the free version of the Solaris CD. You can download a
copy from the above URL.
The program does some interesting tests, but doesn't do a very extensive
memory test. DSIMMs I know cause frequent memory parity errors pass
SunVTS with flying colors.
Others suggested setting "setenv selftest-#megs=xxx" in the prom to the
amount of ram you have, but again this test doesn't do much.
