Raw device data integrity test tool?

I've been looking for a good data integrity test tool for linux, but I'm having trouble finding one. Basically I'm looking for an application that will generate a heavy I/O load to a raw device and then perform some kind of data verification on the device. I my case the raw device will be md raid5 array. Any suggestions?
