comment Load testing HTTP server with large number of concurrent connections
Sorry I do not know this tool. It seems lightweight so it should be able to handle lots of connections - depending on your load generator specs (RAM, CPU). I have used load-runner (on Windows), a most probably much more resource-hungry platform with a couple of thousand simultaneous requests per minute.

comment Load testing HTTP server with large number of concurrent connections
I think it would be helpful if you said which tools you use to generate the load. On the other hand, why don't you try a simple test and see how the load generators fare in terms of their own load (CPU, Errors, lag)?

comment How do you deal with an information hoarder?
@CodingHero & @Anonymous Type: my point is to not judge whether a hoarder is secretive or not by their hoarding nature. Hoarding is about collecting information or things. Some collectors like to proudly share for others to see (while retaining ownership), other collectors like to keep things to themselves. Not all are the same.

comment How do you deal with an information hoarder?
@Anonymous Type, actually I persist: A hoarder, whether of information or otherwise is just a hoarder, i.e. someone who collects information (or things). A hoarder may also have other characteristics, but in this case the wrong characteristic is highlighted and clouds the meaning. Unfortunately there aren't any good definitions available online, but there are a few articles and nothing I saw indicates that hoarding equates being secretive and keep everybody out. So while hoarders, of course try to retain ownership of their things (the whole point) they do not necessarily hide them.

comment How do you deal with an information hoarder?
An information hoarder just gathers information, hoarding does not mean they will not share. Maybe you mean to ask how to deal with a secretive, paranoid or protective person?
