for memory testing try memtest86
http://www.memtest86.com

for testing I/O stuff, try dt and scu
http://www.bit-net.com/~rmiller/

you can do lot's of nasty things with dt, e.g. write to mem-mapped files in 
/dev/shm, or write to file that are NFS mounted or the like

for ideas about your network, try netperf
http://www.netperf.org/netperf/NetperfPage.html
