Anyway, a few years ago I wrote a little tool that generates metric-ass-loads of IO. It was quite ugly because I was in a hurry so I never released the code. It did work very well and I have been using it for years at work and at home to test numerous storage products. The tool has been so successful at breaking stuff that i decided to write an open source version of it. You can find it on its amazing web-page. And on freshmeat.net. Be warned that this tool has broken stuff before! I named the beast "iogen".
Have fun with it and let me know if you have any suggestions.
