Are all your webpages going to be served only to localhost users? If not, then the test is
completely invalid and only serves to show how the servers respond in a very narrow and very
specific and largely useless setup that does not reflect the real world use in any meaningful

Sure, it's nice to think that 'eliminating network congestion' will make the servers serve
'faster', but faster in an artificial setup does not imply actual speed in a real world installation.

Run thousands of test across multiple connections from multiple sources for each server if
you want to see what the performance is ACTUALLY like.
