Only 25 ?, that's good if you're hitting it from local machines. You've
probably hit the hardware/OS limit on the client and or server side... 
it just doesn't have bandwidth for any more.

My HP, when hit from a nearby machine seems to stop at ~14 requests/s,
but that was with a very crude system where the client machine spawned
multiple perl scripts to send requests (and its load rocketed past 30), the
server load stays <0.5.

A better test is to hit the server from multiple local sites (external ones
could be considered abuse of the network)... then again, you might be
doing that already ;-)
