STressing a new server...

When I bought this bare-bones box and plugged in "stuff"
it took several days of figuring out what benchmark and
other utilities to run to stress it. After a few weeks of
pushing the load to 70+, the burning-in was a fair indicator
that the HW would last. After 4+ years, no prob. Now I
have a new box, custom built.
Unfortunately, I've lost (or forgotten!) the same of the
*.sh script and some of the utilities. So what should I
be running and with an example of args? Last time I believe
there were 5 or 6 stressors.
Also, what's the memory testor utility calld? I have
a gig of DDR in this new puppy, and want to be sure that
every last BIT is good.
Help much appreciated!
