Question: kernel->memtest documentation

I have had an issue on my server for a few months with random shutdowns.
Today I configured the kernel option 'memtest' (on 3.19) and it appears
to work when I reading boot logs... but trying to research on what it
does is non-existent.
Reading the code there appears to be no log if bad memory is found (or
not, I dunno?).
Would I see anything in particular in logs if memtest does find something?
Is there a way to see if memory is mapped out to not use?
This appears to be a great option, but nothing on it's usage.
Maybe I am an idiot...
Gosh that takes me back... or is it forward? That's the trouble with
time travel, you never can tell."
