RE: Mysterious RHEL 4 crash



You can download it as an RPM, or standalone or you can use the
Clonezilla livecd I think it has it onboard.

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/memtest86/
http://www.memtest86.com/
http://clonezilla.sourceforge.net/

the only bad thing about this is that it will take the server offline
for hours.  Something I have not been able to do with my server.

Could you explain what is 'memtest86', please!!!
I have the same trouble: rebooting server with nothing in message log.
And I don't know how to find 'memtest86' in my RedHat4.

*sigh*. Since you rebooted, and it did the std. fsck (I would hope),
then you might try taking the system down, and running memtest86.
