do You know any more "advanced" suite for benchmarking www servers
that "ab" (apache benchmark) ?

I mean that this is very hard to simulate real traffic on my sites (
loadbalanced cluster with static/dynamic content division).

Any help appreciated .

Try siege or hammerhead, its not 100% realistic but you've some better
options like in ab.

If you have access to a Windows machine, Microsoft provides some very nice tools as well:
WCAT (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840671#13)
and WAST (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e2c0585a-062a-439e-a67d-75a89aa36495&DisplayLang=en )

Both feature a nice graphical frontend and can simulate multiple distinct browsers, each with its own traffic pattern, and support sites using cookies.
