CPU Push-ups?

CPU Push-ups?

Machine HP9000 D390 Dual Processor.

Stand-alone Testing.

Is there any real cpu intensive commands that I can use without the possibility
of filling up my disks with tar or cpio?

Re: CPU Push-ups?

You can redirect anything that you would normally put on a disk to /dev/null.
Then you don't have to worry about filling them up.

Try running processes that do calculations, like "compress" or "zip", etc. and
just direct the resulting output to /dev/null.

Run this script in background

while true
do
:
done

This will run a cpu @ 100% util, on multi CPU systems just run as many as u
need.
