The mt command is used to do a simple memory test. The test of the memory is simply done by writing each bit in every word and by writing each word locations address with its address and then check that the address can be read back from all locations. To have a slight chance to detect address errors all addresses are first written and then read back. It is not intended to do any rigorious memory testing but instead be a test that can be used to check that installed memory modules comes up as PMON2000 probed them and detect possible problems that has to be further investigated.
The command uses no environment variable.
