Using Knoppix to Test, Diagnose & Benchmark
In Windows I use a program called Sandra by SiSoftware to discover all kinds of information about computer systems, to dignose problems, identify hardware and benchmark and do burn-ins. I'm interested in doing similar things with Knoppix. Please help me use Knoppix to do some of the things I use Sandra on Windows to do. To start:
How do I identify a motherboard?
How do I identify memory by slot?
How do I test memory?
How do I test hard drives (surface integrity)?
How do I benchmark IDE throughput?
What testing and benchmarking tools should I be aware of?
