    Subjectstress testing and loadavg

    What loadavg can a guy reasonably expect his system to handle? I keep
    pushing until it either turns into a paperweight or goes ballistic..
    where should I draw the line?


    I ran 2 make -j's, and the load peaked at 38. That didn't seem to be very
    high, so I fired up X and started running Xboard in 2 machine mode. After
    starting 3 of these, one of the makes died (vfork: out of memory). I killed
    the survivor, and started 4 more Xboards. This sent the machine into no-blink
    swapping (load only 14). The system became so slooooow that it took minutes
    for keystrokes to appear.
