Google: Computer memory flakier than expected
Wondering why your computer just crashed again? Its memory might be to blame, according to real-world Google research that finds error rates higher than what earlier work showed.

With hundreds of thousands of computers in its data centers, Google can collect an abundance of real-world data about how those machines actually work. That's exactly what the company did for a research paper that found error rates are surprisingly high.

"We found the incidence of memory errors and the range of error rates across different DIMMs (dual in-line memory modules) to be much higher than previously reported," according the paper jointly written by Bianca Schroeder, a professor at the University of Toronto, and Google's Eduardo Pinheiro and Wolf-Dietrich Weber. "Memory errors are not rare events." ...

I cannot comment about free RAM, since I've never even heard of it before.

You get what you pay for. Free stuff usually dies in the short term and expensive stuff works for years.

"In the olden days of personal computing and into the 1990s, memory was unreliable enough that people ran reliability tests."

When I did RAM tests back then (both during bootstrap & with diagnostic apps), I do not recall ever seeing an error detected. Maybe others have contrary experience?

BTW, the original 1981 IBM PC had parity-checked RAM. By no means the best way of detecting errors, it was better than nothing.

While this is speculation, I think latent software defects (the effect of the Fall upon human rationality) cause the majority of PC (if not server) crashes. It is *very* difficult (if not impossible) to make software reliable enough to handle all contingencies, especially anything as complex as modern operating systems & office apps with millions of lines of code & dozens of developers. Using software w/o incident for a long time does not mean it has no flaws (fallacy of induction).

Both programmers & users have forgotten the virtue of simplicity.
