To ensure that your Linux machine is stable and reliable, you need to stress test and benchmark certain key aspects of it including CPU performance.

Some of the commands mentioned could use something like a simple check for the amount of cores and use the result as a variable for the number if iterations in a for loop :)

Cool article though

It’s not hard, I’ve done it several times - especially when packing a large archive at maximum compression with p7zip (and the flags -mx --mmt=8; -mx means maximum compression level and mmt=8 means “use 8 threads”) - 30GB or larger. RAM goes 15-18 GB, the CPU goes at 100%. What’s interesing is that if I do the same in Windows, my PC will literally die and become useless whereas 100% CPU in Linux and I’m still able to use my PC normally as if I’m not doing anything. :D Which is why Linux is my main OS.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
