website traffic simulation

Part of the web programming job I'm on right now requires that I do load
testing to ensure that the site can handle twice its current traffic volume.

I've installed the site to a testing server (to avoid crashing the live
version), and have slurped the production site's logs into an SQL
database.  I figured to write a database function or two to calculate
average requests/second, standard deviation, etc.  I'm a rank newbie
when it comes to simulating traffic, though.

Can anyone offer their experiences with simulating web traffic?  Are
there definitive resources I should read first?  Any good simulation
programs out there so I don't have to roll my own?
