  • 16 GB Ram not detected in BIT Linux

    I am running the BurnInTest Linux licensed version on a server with 16 Gb of RAM but I get Total RAM: 3657.47 MBytes.
    The test is configured to check 100% of the RAM.
    It is possible to check all 16GB?

    Can you post the contents of your /proc/meminfo file, as this is where the values are read from.

    The Graphical User Interface version of BurnInTest Linux is a 32 bit application and as such cannot test more than 4GB of RAM, as that is all that is available on 32 bit machines.

    The recently release command line version of BurnInTest Linux has a 64 bit version included in the download that will allow you to test more than 4GB of ram but does not have a GUI, you can download it from

      In fact, in /proc/meminfo the ram is correctly shown:

      But the problem is the 32 bit version, I'll use the command line version to test the RAM and wait for a 64 bit GUI version, thanks.
