The test log:

Running ./memory.py:
Total system RAM: 1986 MB
Testing memory: 1472 MB

Starting Memory BandwidthTest,  using 1024 MB of RAM.

Please verify that lmbench is installed and that bw_mem is on the root's path.

Dear Nichols,
          We had found two "bw_mem" files in two different locations. Can we 
conform that this is the file which you asked to check in root's path?. So we 
attached the snapshots to find the file path.
Kindly help us to solve this issue.

with regards,

For hts you'll need lmbench-3.0a7-6.EL4 instead of lmbench-2.0.4-1.EL4.  After
3.0a7-6 is installed, I would recommend and rpm -V of all of the package to
verify thier condition.

Comment 13 Elavazhagan 2008-03-27 01:59:17 EDT
Dear Rob,
      The memory test is getting passed in hts after installed lmbench-3.0a7-
6.EL4. So We can close this issue. Very thanks to help us to resolve this 

thanks and regards,
