Make it run HOT!!!...uh.how?
I wanted to take a computer and basically run some sort of 'stress' test for it. I would ultimately like it to continuously run so the computer generates a good amount of heat. I know it sounds crazy, but is there any benchmark or stress test that I can use to keep it thinking, but not damage the system? Its only going to be run for about a day.

ah, off hand do you know if this will run on a solaris box, or if they have a distribution for unix? I haven't had a chance to look around, figured I'd ask before I did some digging.

I don't know if it is available yet. They were certainly working on a Linux suite last time I looked.
All the other stuff I know is purely Windows I am afraid..................
I haven't tested a Sun box for years but we never tested them for heat?????????? only for handling the workload and sizing them.
If you could give me a better idea of what exactly you are trying to do I could make a couple of phone calls tomorrow and get back to you?
I think that there is a version for the Alpha processor?

This may help:
Basically a version of the PRIME95 test for non-x86 boxes.

Oh that makes me think.. I think UBCD has bootable stress tests..

It would help a bit if we knew what the hardware and version of Solaris was?
You can get it to run on x86 platforms these days.
