I would load the application you wish to test on the web server(s) and run a tool like Tsung on them.
There is also Apache Benchmark (AB) and Apache JMeter that seem to work very well. Tsung looks promising because it records your browsing patterns with a proxy and can then "reply" your steps on a mass scale. Not to mention that the erlang language is massively robust and scalable.
