Google have released Stressful Application Test (or stressapptest), a hardware test used at Google to test a large number of components in a machine. The test tries to maximize random traffic to memory from processor and disks with the intent of creating a realistic high load situation. stressapptest may be used for various purposes: stress test for machines, hardware qualification and debugging, memory interface test, disk testing. It loads the memory with specially-designed patterns that cause the signal lines to rapidly switch between 1 and 0, drawing the maximum amount of power and cause maximal noise on the nearby voltage rails.
