I have /tmp mounted to tmpfs. Is there a simple script I could use to keep the RAM active but not saturated so I can debug something?

how about:

PORTAGE_TMPDIR=/tmp while true ; do emerge --buildpkgonly sys-devel/gcc ; done

this will keep RAM and CPU busy :)

Actually any heavy system activity seems to do it. I'm really not sure if it's CPU, I/O, or RAM. I'm going to experiment with 'stress'. I'd like to find something I can keep running all the time.
