Stress 1.0.0 Test Tool Finds Memory Bugs

Dec 17, 2007

Version 1.0.0 of the free Stress program has just been released. The test tool generates configurable loads for the CPU, memory, I/O and drives of Posix-compatible systems.

Developer Amos Waterland has now introduced a memory bug discovery feature to version 1.0.0. The program is GPL’d, and the link to the license takes users to the GPLv3 page.

Stress is useful for various computer architectures and Unix-style operating Systems; besides Linux on the Intel x86, it also supports the PPC64, Linux on PPC 32, and Solaris on the Sparc. The source code can be downloaded from the project homepage. Besides the source code, binary packages for Debian, RPM packages for Red Hat and Fedora, an Ebuild for Gentoo and ports for OpenBSD and FreeBSD are available.
