One thing to watch for in doing load testing is that unless you're
using multiple machines for the test, you're stress-testing the client
machine as well as the server. In other words, you're limited by the
weakest point in your system - if your client machine starts to hiccup
it's almost indistinguishable from problems with the server, and
threading issues on the client will affect the results as much as
threading issues on the server. The only way to get meaningful results
from load-testing a server is to use multiple client machines. If you
could post your test code somewhere maybe more of us could run
simultaneous tests against the server for a distributed attack.
