[ale] Burn-in script



Shane,

   I'd love to experiment with these! I've been trying to find
time to put together a package to do exactly what you're
doing.
   The company I work for, Linux Networx, has an internal
script called "Burn-Fu" that does this. I don't know the details
of it too well, but one code they use is called "memtest86".
It does an excellent job of sniffing out memory problems.
Burn-Fu also reads and write to every sector on the disk(s)
but I don't know what they are using to do that. There is also
a code for hammering the CPU. I'll see what I can find out
about the codes (I bet the disk code is a variant of Bonnie++).

Thanks!

Jeff

>This burn-in test will open six seperate xterm sessions.  In three of the

>one of the xterm sessions, your systems slocate database will be updating.
>In another xterm session, your system will be copying a 1GB file 
>continuously.
>In the last xterm session, your system will be finding the program 
>'xboard' on
>your file system.
