Apache for example has 'ab' as a tool for stress testing webservers. Look
for other similar tools maybe. I am guessing the clients aren't running on
routers itself, and it doesn't matter if it is.
On a desktop you can get away with running multiple wget's also.
for((i=1;i<100;i++)); do wget -O /dev/null "http://myserver.com" & done
Then log as necessary based on time taken by wget.
