We get about 520 req/second (with sensible .htaccess use) and widely
varying Mbits/sec on a production machine across an unloaded 100Mbit
interconnection between the boxes on a AMD-k6-200Mhz.

Hmm, how 'bout a simple benchmark people can run as a make test which
presents the results in an emailable form; based on say the output
of a static page test module ? I'd love to see the results for a fair
collection of machines. The attached module is what we use; simply
responds to the URL We then
awk-feed the lenght's striped from a partial log file into a simple
HTTP1/1 fetch on a few machines.
