The reason I ask is I'm unsure if the machine is having issues and I'd
like to see if it's a machine issue or what.

Also, I sure hope there aren't any issues... It's a RAID5 on a gigabit

IMO, real world traffic for static files (ie, normal mirror servers) are

unlikely to stress mirrors much. The bottleneck is likely to be
bandwidth, I/O, or possibly RAM/available threads/file descriptors to 
serve requests.

Unless you're just trying to see at what the limit really is at which
server will fail...
