Default Advanced round off checking

I was wondering if Advanced round off checking will find some missed calculations in the torture test?

When I enabled that option I had just a round off checking error and the worker did not stop. I can't reproduce it after changing my semi defective RAM. I wanted to get a screen shot to prove it.

I'm not sure what you are asking here.

The torture test ignores the Advanced / Round Off checking option. The torture test is always run with round off error checking turned on.

If you select Advanced / Round off checking option in torture test will it do Advanced round off checking instead of basic round off checking?

There is only one kind of round off checking.

The torture test always does round off checking.

LL testing will do round off checking if the Advanced / Round off checking option is selected.
