Can anyone recommend a package for benchmarking a web server? I'm most concerned with initial connection latency, and throughput. The apache benchmarking utility would be great, unfortunately I'm trying to test several hundred concurrent sessions downloading half gig files and as interesting as the prospect is, I don't believe the transfer speed is really -27,000 kb/s.
