stress-ng can stress various subsystems of a computer.  It can stress load
CPU, cache, disk, memory, socket and pipe I/O, scheduling and much more.
stress-ng is a re-write of the original stress tool by Amos Waterland but
has many additional features such as specifying the number of bogo operations
to run, execution metrics, a stress verification on memory and compute
operations and considerably more stress mechanisms.
