A megger test is normally refered to a high voltage test of high resistance, normally in the 500volt range measuring in meg-ohms.  Its called megger after the most popular meter maker in the sixties, of this type of meter.   Care has to be used to choose a range that allows the correct high voltage for the item being tested. too high a voltage can indeed break down the insulation.
