Sorry, i disagree.
Some of the answers were extremely useful.

and forgive me if i consider this to be enough info on the subject.
In some other posts i tried to make it more clear. And indeed by your
help and those of others i realized that there are no such
tools/packages for linux (yet :) ) and most of 'benchmarking' ra
definitely low level of for specific server application.
I was also advised to try and do it by hands, but it is not really a
solution - though being possible.
As to who asked me what...well i live in europe: privacy rulez. ;)
