Description: A tool which imposes stress on a system
'stress' is a tool which imposes a configurable amount of CPU, memory, I/O,
or disk stress on a POSIX-compliant operating system. It is written in
highly-portable ANSI C, and uses the GNU Autotools to compile on a great
number of UNIX-like operating systems.
'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.
