Folks,



Does anyone have diagnosis tests for Alpha processors (testing each
instructions, etc) (all EV versions)?



Thanks,

Tim

The Alpha Firmware Update CDs includes Q-VET, a qualification and
validation testing tool (to be used "by authorized Hewlett-Packard
Service Personnel and Service Partners only"). It installs under VMS
and Tru64. I have no idea, though, whether it will work with an
emulated Alpha.

Tim,

looks like Q-VET (QVET) can be found on:

http://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/Digital/Alpha/firmware/other/qvet/

Just give it a try.

And the QVET manual seems to be here:
