Hi all,
You mention that
17.5.1 Apache 'ab' tool
    You should definitely start with this one

This is HORRIBLE advice! ab works ok if you have a server that replies
at under 5 seconds with no load, and doesn't degrade to badly after
that. There has been a bug with apr_poll SINCE 2003, that nobody has
fixed that means that if the replies start coming at something over 30
seconds it completely borks. So for many (poorly written, I grant
that) sites it is COMPLETELY useless. Maybe httperf is a better "You
should definitely start with this one"?

This will help you for 99.9% of your problems ...
