thanks for your replies. Fortunately, I found a workaround using Jmeter
for overloading the Webserver (or rather, the SSL reverse proxy).

To that end, one thread group can be configured to fire as many requests
as possible, with Connect and Response timeouts well below the average
of the actual measured response times. These threads won't cause a lot
of traffic, but strain the reverse proxy severely. Apparently, the
resulting behaviour is not unlike the result from a large number of
simultaneous real users.

I hope this is of help to someone.
