EXTENDED MEMORY TEST (TM)
Copyright 1991 by Richard Levey
Reliance on memory intensive products such as Windows, OS/2, and disk caches
has pushed many of us to install more and more memory on our systems. Systems
with four to eight megabyte of extended memory are now common.
Other than the BIOS cold boot test and hardware parity checking, there are few
tools available to test extended memory thoroughly. This program, was designed
to fill the gap, by providing intensive and varied memory testing, over all
the extended memory installed. Both data storage and address decoding logic
are exercised by using random data and access patterns.
Extended Memory Test (EMT) is Shareware. You are licensed to use it for a
period not to exceed THIRTY days, and you may distribute it free of charge.
At the end of the thirty day evaluation, you are expected to register it
with the author, or stop using it.
This program has been tested extensively, and I believe it to be defect free.
The author, cannot be held responsible for any damage caused its use. The
program is supplied as is, and is used at your own risk.
EMT was designed to run on processors that support protected mode and extended
memory. It cannot be used to test Expanded Memory (EMS), and will not run on
IBM XT clones. On machines that support protected mode, some extended memory
must be installed before EMT will run. DOS 3.1 or later is also required.
NOTE THAT PROGRAMS SUCH AS QEMM, 386MAX OR ANY OTHER EXTENDED MEMORY MANAGER
MUST BE REMOVED ! BEFORE ! RUNNING EMT. EMT MUST BE ABLE TO OBTAIN COMPLETE
CONTROL OF EXTENDED MEMORY OR IT WILL NOT RUN PROPERLY!
EMT was designed to run under DOS and will not run under OS/2. To invoke EMT
type EMT at the command line. You can supply a single optional parameter, the
extended memory size in kilobytes.
>EMT Tests all configured extended memory
>EMT 1024 Tests 1st 1024K of extended memory
The rest is automatic. There is no way of returning directly to DOS once EMT
is running. If your computer has a hardware reset button, you may use it to
re-boot the system, or you may press the ESCape key and you will get the same
result, a complete cold boot sequence will be initiated.
Please be aware that for large extended memories it takes time to complete a
thorough test. In extreme cases, EMT may take up to 10 minutes to complete a
single pass through memory.
