if it's going to be a webserver, use ab (apache's benchmark tool) to
simulate high traffic. at the same time, you could run other tools on
the server itself (bonny (sp?) from memory, etc). building the kernel
(-j[num_cpuX2) ) seems like a nice way to add some load to the box...

do a search in /usr/ports/sysutils for benchmarking utils.

good luck
