[Lighttpd + PHP + MySQL] How to test performance?

Hello

I have Lighttpd, PHP in FastCGI, and MySQL up and running on FreeBSD.
Now, I'd like to find a tool to stress things, so I can check what
happens when I try different things to improve performance (PHP cache,
MySQL cache, using different queries, etc.)

I haven't found anything on the subjet on www.lighttpd.net : Is there
an equivalent to Apache's ab that I could use to simulate multiple,
simultaneous connections from a client host on the LAN?

Thank you.

Apache's ab can AFAIK stress test a lighty server too. It's not limited to
Apache (allthough designed with it in mind offcourse).

Cool :-) I assume it's a recommend tool for this type of things. Since
I don't know what I'm doing, can I just download this tool and install
it in FreeBSD, or am I required to install the whole Apache
package/ports just to get ab?

Thanks.
