I've used Advanced Clustering's "Breakin" bootable image for this in the 
past - it's open source and freely downloadable.


It looks like their code is up on their own git server too:


It looks like the downloads haven't been updated for several years, 
whilst the git repos are more recent.

I've also just noticed a tool called "stressant" but that's not been 
touched for a year:


No idea what that's like!

All the best,
