Stress tests with Kali Linux?


I have two servers at my home, one running CentOS and another running Windows Server 2008. I want to know what kind of stress tests I can put on the two servers just for the fun of it (I want to see which one will hold up better, as the centos is underpowered compared to the win server computer). Is there anything in Kali Linux that lets me do this? Anything that like spams it with packets or something? I dont really know, what kind of stress testing can be done? Are there conventional cross platform stress tests you can run?

Kali Linux has a few in Stress Testing scripts (Siege, denial6, smurf6) built-in under Kali Linux -> Stress Testing -> Network Stress Testing.
Have a look at the --help output of those scripts
