I don't have a real official way, since I've never had a major problem with solaris.

But what I have done to burn in new servers is to run many instances of seti@home until it starts to bog down, and just let them run fir as long as I can...

The right way to stress test is to use SunVTS software. It's location: /opt/SUNWvts/bin/sunvts just run it from root user.
There are also manual pages. SunVTS is either on companion CD or in full distribution of Solaris 10, I can't remember.

man pkgadd
cd where is your Package root (SUNWvts is right below this directory), probably "cd /home/jono/vts/"
pkgadd -d .
select SunVTS
