This run failed stating that the bw_mem command was not found - this is one of
the lmbench tools, and should be in /usr/bin.  Please check this, and also,
what version/revision of lmbench is installed, and where did you obtain it?

- Thanks

Spoke to IBM this morning. So, the problem happens only when the memory = 4G. If
its more or less than that, the test passes. So my tests are not valid. Any
updates on this? This is blocking IBM's cert on RHEL 5 System P.

Please try running the threaded_memtest directly, ala:

> cd /usr/share/hts/tests/memory
> make threaded_memtest
> ./threaded_memtest -qpv -m100% -t10

Also try it with a slightly lower memory paramter:

./threaded_memtest -qpv -m95% -t10

- Thanks!
Comment 40 Greg Nichols 2007-02-09 12:02:56 EST
The problem is that the threaded_memtest binary is compiled as a 32-bit
application.   A work-around for this bug is to set -m64 prior to running 
the test, as in:

> CFLAGS=" -m64 "
> export CFLAGS
> hts certify --test memory

Comment 41 Greg Nichols 2007-02-09 12:52:47 EST
Fixed R25: threaded_memtest compiles with -m64 on ppc64

I changed CFLAGS in Makefile, and it worked fine. Running 16GB memory test.
will take long time to run .Will post the results when done.
