In reading one of the various performance threads recently in either 
-questions or -current, I seem to recall someone mentioning a utility 
that can be used to do some sort of "stress" testing.  The reference 
was in a man page style  [ command(n) ] type reference in the thread.  
I though I saved it but cannot find it.  Is there some sort of port or 
utility or command that can do general system/sub-system stress 

I don't have any specific needs or requirements.  The reference just 
looked interesting and I wanted to look into the facility mentioned to 
see what it does and if it would be useful to me somehow to stress new 
systems etc.
