I haven’t done a command in the week in such a long time that I hoped to semi resurrect into at least a monthly-weekly adventure.
The sys_basher command is an excellent tool to perform some tests on cpu, memory, and disk I/O reliability. The nice thing about it is you can just run the command and go without having to worry too much about the options.
If you choose to use some options, I’ve been doing the following to test memory on an old x4100 with 100 loops:
sys_basher -m -l 100
Keep the tool in mind when you want to stress test certain parts of your system.
