stress_driver home page
This is the home for the humble stress_driver stress test tool that
began life by crashing Convex supercomputers.
You may download stress_driver from the File
List page. The package includes the single Perl files that
implements stress_driver, plus documentation in html and man format,
and the beginnings of a test sui te
for the tool. You will also need to install Perl's Event module before
running stress_driver - see CPAN.
Stress_driver has been tested on Linux and Cygwin/Windows (go to http://cygwin.com/ to install Cygwin on
top of Windows). The 1.0 release failed several of the tests on my
Windows XP box after I upgraded Cygwin, however.
These papers and presentations provide background beyond the man page
that's in the source distribution.
