- After you boot into the media, click the Debian logo in the top-left corner, then click “Terminal Emulator” to open the terminal:
- 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.
