ab (part of the httpd package) is good at this for limited results (no
cookie sessions things like that)
beyond this, I usually use some mozilla/firefox plugins to record
actions, and then 'play them' to stress the system. live-headers does
this, though not enough to really test. I forget the name of the other
plugin off-hand.
