Default memtest

Hi,

are there any memtest for x86 platforms out there, which
could handle a hexa-core CPU?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!
Best regards,
mcc

memtest uses only 1 CPU, so it doesn't care how many more are
installed. You could have 4096 CPUs, like the largest IBM mainframes,
and memtest will still use only 1 of them.

Note that all memory is accessible from all CPUs, even on a NUMA
system. This is why memtest does not need to use multiple CPUs.
