Subject: User question about memory scrubbing

Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi! I realize that this is more of a developer-to-developer list, but
I'm a hobbyist who recently bought my first system with ECC RAM
(Opteron 6386 SE) and I can't get memory scrubbing to work. It's hard
to find people who know anything about it.

Preliminary research led me to the EDAC documentation on
and in particular the "sdram_scrub_rate" file, but had no luck
manipulating it.

Before I'm getting too lost: Is that the right way to configure it?

I have amd64_edac_mod and edac_mce_amd loaded. I briefly looked at
amd64_edac.c and it appears to have the necessary code and matches the
documentation from AMD so there's something I'm not doing right. I did
post a more elaborate question on
but I'm afraid it's too technical for most users (too technical for me
too apparently!)

Hints and pointers welcome,
