Simple Linux Load is a simple disk and CPU load generator to stress linux servers. I mashed this up when I had to put some load on a machine to troubleshoot issues with it which were only occuring under load.

It consists of two very simple shell scripts, each generating and deleting a 4GB file, and this in a loop.

  • rnd.sh: the file is filled with random numbers, and stresses the CPU more than the disk;
  • zero.sh: the file is filled with zeroes, and stresses the disk more than the CPU.

There's no licensing on these scripts. You can do with it whatever you want.
