Tools to exercise Dell 2650 hardware?

I had some raid problems awhile back on a couple of our 2500's and I ended
up using an intel product called IOMETER.  It can currently be found here:

Intel has discontinued supporting it and handed over to the open source
world. HTH.

Subject: Tools to exercise Dell 2650 hardware?

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a suite of tools, not necessarily
the same source, for really exercising a Dell server prior to putting it
service. I'm interested in stressing memory, hard disk, RAID, etc.

We have a 2650 that has exhibited odd behavior that we're unable to
on a nearly identical server (see my NFS issues post) and I'd like to
test both the current server and it's potential replacement.
