Quick questions about memtest HCI

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm reading good things about memtest HCI. I need to detect potentially bad memory that is passing memtest86+

I was advised to run 4 instances of hci with 2000MB set on each and have at least 1GB of memory free when testing. I also read somewhere to disable page filing before testing. Am I missing something?

Anyways how long should I run this test that would be equivalent to a standard 8 passes on memtest86+? and how long should it run to be equivalent to a 'great test' of 22 passes on memtest86+?

I'm sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong here, but I always run to 1000%

I run 8 instances for a quad core, one per thread.

I think 500-600% would be a good start, but I like to see 1000 or over for 24/7 stuff...

And as you said, I add up all my available memory and divide it among the 8 instances leaving a bit for the system...
