Burn-in Testing

Server hardware’s chance of failure is high at the start and the end of its life. As a result, much effort in dealing with hardware failures while in production can be avoided by appropriate burn-in testing to attempt to trigger the early-stage failures. The general principle is to stress the hardware to its limits. Examples of burn-in tests include running a CPU or disk benchmark for several days.
