The following command-line options can be used to automatize stressing the system using the AIDA64 System Stability Test:

 

/SST [subtests]

This option can be used to automatically open the System Stability Test window when AIDA64 loads up, and start the system stress test right away. When no subtests is specified, all subtests are enabled. To specify which subtest to enable, the name of subtests should be listed, separated by comma. In subtests the following subtest names can be used:

 

  • CPU
  • FPU
  • Cache
  • RAM
  • Disk
  • GPU

 

Example: AIDA64 /SST CPU,FPU,RAM /SSTCPUMASK 0xFF /SSTDELAY 30 /SSTDUR 15

 

/SSTCPUMASK <mask>

This option can be used to limit the stress test for a certain CPU thread mask. The mask is a hexadecimal value that can start with 0x, $ or no leading characters. Specifying a mask for multiple CPU groups is possible by separating the group masks with colon.

Example for 3 CPU groups: AIDA64 /SST CPU,FPU,RAM /SSTCPUMASK 55:AA:FF

 

/SSTDELAY <seconds>

This option can be used to delay the start of the stress test in seconds. When /SSTDELAY is not specified, the stress test will start in 2 seconds.

 

/SSTDUR <minutes>

This option can be used to set the duration of the stress test in minutes. When /SSTDUR is not specified, the stress test will run until it's manually stopped by the user.

 

/SSTDISKWRITE

This option can be used to switch disk stressing from the default random read method to linear file writing. For SSDs linear write usually makes the device consume more power and heat up more, but it also shortens the lifecycle of the SSD by wearing out flash memory cells. Make sure to use this option with extra caution!
