I usually use mprime for stressing the CPU (using small FFTs) or CPU+RAM (using larger FFTs).

Here is a shell function that fully load the given number of CPUs for the given number of seconds (default one CPU for 60 seconds):

Code:
# Usage: lc [number_of_cpus_to_load [number_of_seconds] ]
lc() {
  (
    pids=""
    cpus=${1:-1}
    seconds=${2:-60}
    echo loading $cpus CPUs for $seconds seconds
    trap 'for p in $pids; do kill $p; done' 0
    for ((i=0;i<cpus;i++)); do while : ; do : ; done & pids="$pids $!"; done
    sleep $seconds
  )
}

Thanks guys. I think ill try measuring the compile time and maybe try the super pi to compare my new VPS provider to others.
Not like it really matters for me but still curious. I think some good ones were mentioned here that weren't easily googled on the first page.

Can't run it too long though, they might get angry!
