Yes. I've used wrk in my own tests. It's a very good tool. The problem is I
don't think wrk really can simulate communication from many clients. There
is something different between simulating many clients with one real client
and actually testing with many real different clients. I can't put my
finger on what the difference is. But there must be a difference. Otherwise
why is my application running into such performance limits as mentioned in
this question on stackoverflow
