Technically, we are running RHEL-7.8; but our problems have been around for the better part of a year from what my teammates tell me. I have only been on this job for 6 mnths.
Anyway, I am running memtest86, as suggested by our vendor to determine if we have hardware problems.
The specs of our servers, they are all provided by the vendor along with their specialized software, are:
- 2 CPUs @ 8cores/cpu; with hyper-threading enabled
- 16x 8GB (total 128GB RAM) at DDR4 @ 2133 MT/s
So. I have two really basic (I hope?) questions that I hope someone can assist me with:
- How long roughly should it take to run through all passes/tests/etc../etc... to complete the execution of RAM testing by memtest86?
- Does memtest86 run any other diagnostics? Or is it simply doing memory testing very well?
