Script Help


I configured big brother in a sun server, i need to test it by running a script which has more cpu utilisation and memory utilisation. If i run that script i should get alerts that iam having more cpu usage and memory usage.

Can someone give me an idea how to do that, i dont have any specific application which consumes more cpu or memory like java or weblogic. so i have to use just 'find' or someother command like that.

Please provide your suggestions.

Thanks in advance.

There are almost 2M hits from Google stress Linux test.

I have often used memtest86 for memory loading, and bonnie++ to benchmark and work mass storage.

Here is something from the Debian repository:
Package: stress
Version: 0.18.4-1
Priority: optional
Section: devel
Maintainer: Amos Waterland <>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4)
Architecture: i386
Filename: pool/main/s/stress/stress_0.18.4-1_i386.deb
Size: 17966
Installed-Size: 52
MD5sum: 937d0188d7e298f4a27d2d148f67f1ee
Description: A tool to impose load on and stress test a computer system
'stress' is a tool that imposes a configurable amount of CPU, memory, I/O,
or disk stress on a POSIX-compliant operating system and reports any errors
it detects.
'stress' is not a benchmark. It is a tool used by system administrators to
evaluate how well their systems will scale, by kernel programmers to evaluate
perceived performance characteristics, and by systems programmers to expose
the classes of bugs which only or more frequently manifest themselves when
the system is under heavy load.
Best wishes ... cheers, drl

Thanks for your reply. But the package you mentioned is for x86 do you know any package for SPARC systems. Also if its a script which can load the cpu that would be fine too.

Thanks .
