  I'm looking into creating a complex load testing tool (not radclient),
that will be single threaded, but which will be able to have many 1000's
of outstanding requests.  It will track a number of pieces of
information, including offered load, accepted load, histograms of delay
over time, etc.

  It can be run on mltiple machines, and the results collated.

  Ping me privately if this is interesting.
