Dear Beowulf mailing list members,

we are building a new Beowulf cluster at the moment. New hardware is
arriving every day. Now we want to make certain that this hardware has
no errors. Therefore we want to stress test them.
Do you know of any papers, articles, proceedings, tools... concerning
this topic beside the ones below?
