Many thanks for the replies.  Many said to use SUNWvts, however I dont have
the media for Solaris 7 handy.  That aside, I got the perfect little script I
was looking for from Jez Ahl of Andel Consulting.

while true
  wc -m /dev/mem &

I added the date variable so that if it crashes without any sort of dump or
syslog, I can see when It crashed.

That is exactly what I wanted.
