Thank you for confirming.

I have stressed it for 72 or more hours.
Stresser does:
  - allocates/frees big memory(1.7GB) which was almost system
    memory size(2GB) repeatedly.
Confirmation of integrity of patched Filesystem(jbd) does:
  - creates files, and copies 3 files from created each file
    (3 copies run concurrently), and confirms whether there is
    no difference between created files and copied files.
  (20 processes runs these works concurrently and repeatedly.)
Above 2 jobs run concurrently.

I haven't ever used 'fsxlinux'.
Next time, I will use it.
