Professional freeware utility HeavyLoad, designed by JAM Software, allows to test your computer reliability under comprehensive stress test under heavy load in the computer specification. HeavyLoad is intended to stress all resources of a PC (CPU, RAM, hard disk, network, operating system etc.) in order to test if it will run reliably under heavy load. You would definitely prefer your computer to fail while it is still under warranty rather than several days after.
This is useful for assessing important file or database servers before using them productively, or simply to ensure your new PC will not overheat when used intensively.
HeavyLoad also allows testing the behavior of systems under fading system resources (memory, disk space).
If you need to use the utility for multiple computers at home or for commercial purposes at work, you may customize the individual test methods employed by HeavyLoad to fit your needs. On a system featuring multiple processor cores, for example, you can select how many of the available cores shall be used or set the speed in which the test file is to be written on your hard disk.
Use your processor or even a specific number of processor cores to full capacity. HeavyLoad performs complex calculations to simulate the load on your processor.
Write Test File
Check how your system behaves when faced with dwindling disk space. HeavyLoad writes a test file to your hard disk with variable speed. You can define the amount of remaining disk space; once this limit is reached, HeavyLoad overwrites the file again and again until more disk space is freed up.
You would like to test how well your computer works with scarce memory? HeavyLoad can help: it reserves memory and even allows you to define how much memory should be kept free and how fast the memory should be allocated.
Simulate Disc Accesses
How much can your hard disk take? Is it reliable? With a combination of HeavyLoad and the scan function of TreeSize Free, another utility, developed by JAM Software, you can find out today. HeavyLoad simulates a number of hits on files and folders on all local disks.
How does your graphics card handle stress? With HeavyLoad you can utilize your graphics card processor to capacity. HeavyLoad employs a 3D rendered graphic to simulate a high load on the GPU.
Use HeavyLoad everywhere
Be mobile: Install HeavyLoad as a portable version e.g. on a USB stick and use it wherever needed!
