Stressful Application Test (or stressapptest, its unix name) tries to maximize
randomized traffic to memory from processor and I/O, with the intent of
creating a realistic high load situation in order to test the existing hardware
devices in a computer.
Stressapptest may be used for various purposes:
* stress test
* hardware qualification and debugging
* memory interface test
* disk testing
