Subject: [gentoo-user] OT - memory testing
Date: Tue, 21 Jan 2014 23:11:30
1 Got a question from a friend of mine who works in IT. He's very new to
2 Linux. Here is his question:
4 "Have you ever found a program in linux that allows you to locate bad
5 dims if you have faults? I’ve tried memtest86, memconf, memtester and
6 none of them can point out what slot on the motherboard has the bad RAM.
7 I know usually you just plug in one at a time. But memtest86 takes
8 hours and I have…wait for it….16 slots to test DIMs on for this specific
9 server with memory failure."
11 Any ideas? Is it even possible for the software to know which slot the
12 bad memory is in?
14 He isn't using Gentoo, I think he's on Ubuntu. If you can suggest
15 software we'll deal with the installation.
17 Thanks very much - Skippy
