Platform Diagnostics platform_check Tests

Running all tests

Use the platform_check test without any options to run all tests.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Run all Platform Diagnostics tests.
    platform_check
If the output is Overall Platform Health: PASS, the platform passed all tests. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.

Checking sensors

Use the platform_check sensors test to check the sensor values while the system is in production.
Note: Supported only on i5000/i7000/i10000 Series platforms.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Check the sensor values to see if any are outside of specified limits.
    platform_check sensors
If the output is PASS, the PCI devices passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.

Checking devices on the PCI bus

Use the platform_check pci test to check that expected devices on the PCI bus are present, and whether the width or speed is not what is expected, while the system is in production.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Check the integrity of the PCI devices installed in the system.
    platform_check pci
If the output is PASS, the PCI devices passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.

Checking Always-On Management (AOM)

Use the platform_check aom test to check for Always-On Management (AOM) errors while the system is in production.
Note: Supported only on i5000/i7000/i10000 Series platforms.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Run the check to see if there are any AOM errors.
    platform_check aom
If the output is PASS, the AOM passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.

Checking severity levels

Use the platform_check sel test to check the SEL for entries with a problematic security level while the system is in production.
Note: Supported only on i5000/i7000/i10000 Series platforms.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Run the check to see if there are any entries in the SEL with a problematic security level.
    platform_check sel
If the output is PASS, the SEL passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests. You can review the SEL logs in /var/log.

Checking the storage drive

Use the platform_check drive test to verify the SMART status of all SMART-capable storage drives installed in the system while the system is in production.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Examine the integrity of the storage drive installed in the system.
    platform_check drive
If the output is PASS, the storage drive passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.

Checking memory

Use the platform_check memory test to check the memory while the system is in production.
Note: Supported only on i5000/i7000/i10000 Series platforms.
  1. Log on to the command line of the system using an account with root access.
  2. Verify the memory installed in the system..
    platform_check memory
If the output is PASS, the memory passed the test. If the output is FAIL, you should consider taking the system out of production to run the End-User Diagnostic (EUD) tests.
