The Question is:

I want to test a CPU (2100 AXP 4/233)that is suspect, the normal hardware test
 do not deliver any conclusion. The machine just dies without any error logged
 to the errorlog.Is there any program I can use to load (stress) the CPU, Mem,
 IO, etc to clarify i
f the hardware is running OK?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard is generally not in a position to provide hardware
  support, nor to answer hardware-troubleshooting questions.  (As was
  mentioned in the introduction, the OpenVMS Wizard is familiar with
  OpenVMS, but is generally not a StorageWorks, VAX, Alpha nor Itanium
  hardware wizard.)
  Please forward all questions that are centrally hardware questions or
  hardware support requests -- and any questions that involve diagnosing
  or resolving hardware problems -- directly to the HP hardware services
  organization, or please contact your locally-prefered hardware support
  organization for assistance.
