Yes, but the mission is just to see which webserver is "better" in  
terms of performance.  So, I should be more specific with my  
question:  to the end of determining strictly which webserver is more  
efficient do you see any problems with this type of setup?

And another question: how would you do it differently?  Sure, in an  
ideal world I could assemble my own botnet and then blast my corporate  
network with a gigabit of distributed traffic multiple times for each  
webserver -- but obviously in the real world that's not going to happen.
