Intel MLC(Memory Latency Checker) distrust results

Intel MLC(Memory Latency Checker) distrust results

Recently, Our servers appears abnormal performance.

So, I tested performance with Intel MLC v2.3 after reboot.

First result is very good.

However, I returned strange result after 3~5 times repeat mlc.

I think last result is credible data.

Finally, I replaced memory and performance becomes good.

In question, Why mlc result is good when immediately reboot?

Why the origin result is show later?

Please help me.

Hello,

This is off-topic for this particular forum.  I will see if I can move your question to a more appropriate place.

I see that when you go to the landing page and click on "Forum", it sends you to the Business Client Forum.  I am working on getting this resolved.
