Can any of you recommend a good RAM stress testing tool?
I have a server with 128GB of RAM that keeps reporting single-bit
errors. Every time this happens, I reseat the DIMMS or swap them around,
and then run some large MPI jobs with I hope stress the RAM. Sometimes
this produces more SBEs, sometimes it doesn't. When the system seems
stable, I let the users back on it, and sure enough, they get it to
start reporting SBEs in short order.
