can stress-ng run with real commands linux?

Asked by Assaf Lowenstein on 2017-09-28

Hi,

I need to stress a machine with real linux commands and not with low level operations as stress-ng allows today.
For example, for io stress, create many processes that do vi to some random file, write something, save and exit. do that in different locations. or do multiple "ls -la" in different locations.
Another example is to do ssh to some host or netcat.

Is that possible?

Thanks.
