Dell and Sendmail did a thing a while back with hardware benchmarking on
SAMS for a white paper that was pretty interesting.  They used an
application called Mstone from the Mozilla site for simulating load.

The original Word file has apparently been removed from the Dell website,
but Google was kind enough to cache an HTML conversion of it.  I saved a
copy of the page here:

Hope that's helpful,

PS: If anyone is interested in collaborating on a load simulation process,
I've been thinking of doing something along those lines for a while, and
probably would if I had some help.
