Summary: Stress test a computer system in various selectable ways
stress-ng will stress test a computer system in various selectable
ways. It was designed to exercise various physical subsystems
of a computer as well as the various operating system kernel
interfaces. Stress-ng features:

  * 310+ stress tests
  * 80+ CPU specific stress tests that exercise floating point, integer,
    bit manipulation and control flow
  * 20+ virtual memory stress tests
  * 40+ file system stress tests
  * 30+ memory/CPU cache stress tests
  * portable: builds on Linux (Debian, Devuan, RHEL, Fedora, Centos, Slackware
    OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, etc..), Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD,
    Minix, Android, MacOS X, Serenity OS, GNU/Hurd, Haiku, Windows Subsystem
    for Linux and SunOs/Dilos/Solaris.
    with gcc, clang, icc, tcc and pcc.
  * tested on alpha, armel, armhf, arm64, hppa, i386, m68k, mips32, mips64,
    power32, ppc64el, risc-v, sh4, s390x, sparc64, x86-64

stress-ng was originally intended to make a machine work hard and trip
hardware issues such as thermal overruns as well as operating system
bugs that only occur when a system is being thrashed hard. Use stress-ng
with caution as some of the tests can make a system run hot on poorly
designed hardware and also can cause excessive system thrashing which
may be difficult to stop.

stress-ng can also measure test throughput rates; this can be useful to
observe performance changes across different operating system releases
or types of hardware. However, it has never been intended to be used as
a precise benchmark test suite, so do NOT use it in this manner.
