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!
