This will generate CPU load IO load and a bunch of other stuff. NOTE: Dont run this on production VM's you might piss off your host lol.


  • Hey FRCorey? can I borrow a VPS real quick?

    haha anyways thanks for that. I'm going to test out my node with this!

    Looks alright, might test it out on some of our test nodes some time. :)

  • It's really just good for generating a lot of CPU/IO/Disk activity, and a lot easier and quicker than creating a bunch of network scripts to do the same thing.

    Yes that would piss us off :)

    Hosts should scan for this stuff and automatically remove/sandbox/suspend.

    Those hosts should also include that they will scan and stuff in their TOS ;)

    Hmm.. it looks like I've visited this site and downloaded stress-1.0.2.tar.gz before, interesting, I don't remember using it..
