Burn in test


Does anyone have any software recommendations for running burn in tests prior to putting servers in production?

Thanks

Use memtest86 to test ram, use dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null to test CPU and load, use dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sda to test hard disk

There's also Prime95 for CPU which is free.

Just found this one as well from intel: http://downloads.guru3d.com/IntelBur...load-2047.html

+1 for Prime95 as a windows solution.

Sorry, I don't use windows, get a bootable Linux CDROM and boot into rescue mode to run Linux command, that's what I do for windows server.

Prime95 works equally well on Linux and Windows. It goes a step farther than most tests by actually doing serious calculations. I've seen servers fail Prime95 after 5-10 minutes but pass others running for hours.

For stress testing, we generally run Prime95 with custom blend and small-fft options for at least 30 minutes.

As for windows, prime95 is a good choice, and running the suite of burn-in/benchmarks with sandra is another option as well.

Just to confirm we're talking about the same Prime95 at http://www.overclock.net/t/137251/prime95

Does this do burn in tests for the CPU/MEM/HDD?

Thanks guys.

That's it, but it does NOT test HDD. It does test CPU/Memory. I'd still run Memtest afterwards regardless as a secondary measure to ensure your memory is good.
