What I do is boot with mem=256M, then swapoff -a;
swapon /net/host/$path/file.swp;

the file.swp I created using dd and mkswap on the remote host.

I then run 2 cyclic loops on anonymous memory sized 96mb, and run 2
cyclic loops on file backed memory on the same NFS mount
(eg /net/host/$path/file[12]), also sized 96mb

That gives a memory footprint of 4*96=384mb and will thus rely on paging
quite heavily.

While this is on-going you can have a little deamon that listens and
accepts connections and reads from them.

On a 3rd machine, start say a 1000 connections to this deamon that
continuously write stuff to it.

Then on you NFS host do something like: /etc/init.d/nfs stop

go for lunch

and when you're back do: /etc/init.d/nfs start

and see if all comes back up again ;-)
