Thanks Edward.

What is the expected ratio of CPU Usage when HTTPS is enabled at Nginx ? How is the ratio affected when we enable persistent HTTP

Folks from nginx or who have already bench marked may help here and can point me to useful links on web.

Bombard is a useful wrapper round siege.

I've had trouble using siege with more than a couple of thousand connections - crashes with buffer overflow.  I've not tried to debug this yet but would be interested in other people's experiences.

You can try "siege".
In the past I have take the access log to create a list of urls to be
used by siege.
