1. Sending only one request at a time somehow contradicts your goal
   of testing the server performance, doesn't it?
2. If you abort the POST method rather than reading the response body,
   won't that affect the test results? Generating the response body
   might be a non-trivial effort.
3. Aborting the request is a purely local operation. HttpClient closes
   the connection. That does not necessarily mean that the server is
   immediately aware of the connection being closed. It might consider
   the connection as open for a while, and it might keep a database
   connection open as long as it expects to need it for generating
   the response.

You should read the responses to the end and then release the connection
gracefully. Then the server will generate all markup and *knows* that
it's done after sending it.

hope that helps,
