The Cisco UCS Diagnostics software for Cisco UCS Blade Servers enables you to run tests on the hardware and verify the health of the components. The tool provides a variety of tests to exercise and stress the hardware subsystems on Cisco UCS Blade Servers. These tests can be run through the tool GUI or a CLI.

 

The subsystems it can test are

  • CPU
  • Memory
  • Video Memory
  • Storage (servers with MegaRAID controllers)

 

You can use the tool to run regression tests on the Cisco UCS Blade Servers after fixing or replacing hardware components. You can also use this tool to run comprehensive burn-in tests on Cisco UCS Blade Servers before deploying them in production environments.
