Memtest should be run for at least 6-8 passes. How long it takes depends on your system specs. It doess not give a traditional log file that you can "access" but when it finishes there will be a summary on the screen. As long as you dont reboot it will be there
I allowed memtest to run for 20 hours (11 passes) and it never showed any signs of giving any kind of a summary or ever coming to any end.
When it started in on the 12th pass, I stopped it; but I could see no way to stop it other than by hitting esc (reboot). Even then, I had to quickly get into the BIOS to change the boot order so it wouldn't just keep running over and over from the beginning.
