NAME

ctcs-newburn - generate a CTCS burn profile, and run the burnin  

SYNOPSIS

ctcs-newburn [options]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the ctcs-newburn command.

ctcs-newburn examines the hardware of the running system, writes out a .tcf file, and then invokes ctcs to execute the burnin test suite.

This program should only be run as root, as some tests involve direct access to hardware. Also, while well-behaved hardware shouldn't have any problems, marginal or improperly installed hardware may cause system crashes or even suffer damage due to the use of this program. Also, due to the extremely heavy load produced, this program should never be run on a live system.

In general, you should only have to give ctcs-newburn a single option, the duration you wish to run the test for (such as "5h" or "3d", for "five hours" and "three days", respectively). Even this is optional; without it, the test will run continuously until stopped. A range of other options are available to fine-tune the test suite generated, but all options are simply passed to the ctcs-newburn-generator command, so you should examine that program's manual page for more details.
