What tool can i use to do hardware testing?
hi guys. I recently build a server. I was wondering what tool can i use to test the stability of the hardware and the OS. (Windows2003/CentOS)
Use memtest86 (centOS boot cd should have that option)
If windows is already installed, try prime95 -- thats one of the toughest tools that pretty easily weeds out bad hardware.

mprime (sister version of prime95) is good for CPU/motherboard stress test for linux/BSD based server:
We soak-test new kit with memtest for 12 hours and prime for 12 hours, before racig up ready for customer deployement.
There are some good tools on the ultimate boot disk for checking different aspects of the hardware.
