Good luck.  I really wouldn't recommending throwing money down this path.  I 
spent $300 I really don't have on a GigE switch and cards in order to get more 
out of mod_cache to little avail other than more useless benchmark numbers.

Yet, if you send me some flood scripts and httpd patches, I can throw some 
numbers back at ya though.  No sense other httpd'ers wasting their money.

Um, flood already lets you do this and lots more.  ab isn't a load simulator 
and trying to produce benchmarks with it is laughable.  -- justin
