What is a good utility to stress-test HP-UX 11.11 server

We intend on purchasing a used server but I want to be able to test its components (memory, CPU, disk, etc.) so that I can be sure that the server is in good state.

Would any of you be able to recommend a free utility that would be able to stress test a server?

I believe there are some test routines built into the Diagnostics.

Once the OS and Diags are installed, you can try using 'mstm' from a terminal, or if you have X-windows available try 'xstm'.

bonnie++ is good for disk io.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"

i prefer iozone for disk stressing (well, in fact bonnie and iozone are benchmark tools, but in that fact they also stress the system as much as possible).
