The script I use is at:


which you invoke like "/path/to/stress t5562" from the top-level of a
git.git checkout.  It basically just runs a loop of twice as many
simultaneous invocations of the test script as you have CPUs, and waits
for one to fail. The load created by all of the runs tends to flush out
timing effects after a while.

It fails for me on t5562 within 30 seconds or so (but note that in this
particular case it sometimes takes a while to produce the final output
because invoke-with-content-length misses the expected SIGCLD and sleeps
the full 60 seconds).

You'll probably need to tweak the variables at the top of the script for
your system.

Yeah, the $PERL_PATH thing is totally orthogonal, and should graduate
