This article relies on the live media created here.

Stressful Application Test is a memory testing tool, notably used by Google.

Running the test

  1. After you boot into the media, click the Debian logo in the top-left corner, then click “Terminal Emulator” to open the terminal: terminal
  2. In the terminal, type stressapptest -W -s <time>. Replace <time> with the time in seconds that you want to run the test for. We suggest an hour, so the command would be stressapptest -W -s 3600. Then press Enter to actually run the command.
