Yes!

A little trick to help test the cpu load on a multi-core machine.

Open a Terminal and type the following and press Enter.

yes > /dev/null &

You may need to repeat the command for as many cores as your CPU has in order to stress to the maximum. To kill the ‘yes’ command (which writes a string continuously) use:

killall yes

And use it at your own risk 🙂
