You can use bonnie++, tiobench, and iometer to test the hard
drives/RAID/general I/O, and memtest86 to stress test the memory.

Bonnie++    http://www.coker.com.au/bonnie++/
Tiobench    http://sourceforge.net/projects/tiobench
Iometer     http://sourceforge.net/projects/iometer/
Memtest86   http://www.memtest86.com/
