Hi you can use memtester

Install it with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install memtester (Debian, ubuntu, ...)
sudo yum install memtester (Fedore, RedHat, ...)
sudo emerge -q sys-apps/memtester (gentoo)
And than you can run it with:

Code: Select all

memtester 2000 5
2000 is the amount of RAM-memory you want o test (in Mib)
5 is the number of tests.
