A really good tool for stress-testing a system is ports/math/mprime. It will find memory and cpu errors that memtest86 and other tools completely overlook. Run one copy per cpu, something like this: for i in $(jot $(sysctl -n hw.ncpu) 0) ; do sleep $((i * 2)) && mprime -t -a$i >/tmp/mprime$i.log & done Many overclockers use this to ensure the system is stable with the OC settings. If your system can run a copy of mprime per cpu continuously for 24 hours the hardware is fine. -- Ian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
