Summary

...is better!

This GUI front end is easier to use and more importantly runs a test efficiently and quickly. In addition the user can select how many runs of the test to use and it will save the log which is great! This is a handy utility!

"It's a nice start.."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Finally a GUI for this memory tester! Works well.. except that I thought the testing process was going a bit slow so I snooped with Activity Monitor and found that Rember was hogging 30% of the CPU on my PowerBook G4 (867-Aluminum-12").... leaving only about 60% of the CPU to the actual command line client to test with..

Further testing shows this to be the case only when the default tab (Rember) is selected. Selecting the "log" tab drops the CPU usage down to where it should be for Rember (below 1%) and allows the command line client to actually test the memory with over 90% of the CPU. However, there are still times when Rember is doing certain initial tests when even in "log" mode it takes up to 40% of the CPU as it updates the text in the log repeatedly with "\\|/-" marks. These should be a spinning line in the actual shell, but appears as individual characters for some reason in the log with this GUI wrapper.

Suggestions for the next version:
1. An icon?
2. Documentation. As it stands, there is none included.
3. Focus on performance. Is it possible to get the CPU usage down on the default tab and the log tab (during the random test)? I think the performance hit is probably related to the aqua update bar. Perhaps a different style of update indicator would greatly reduce unnecessary CPU use.
4. Possible for the GUI to tell the user *which* chunk of memory is being tested? Physical address reporting? i.e. I can tell the program to test `128 MB out of 1 Gig, but which 128 MB is it testing, always the same? Rolling? Randomly assigned?

I also have to wonder, since there is no documentation, if a failure is located, will it only be found by reading through the log tab, or will the default tab do something special to alert the user?
