How large are your stress tests?!

Stress test is a fun:) I even wrote an article about load testing using old-fashion WCAT. Ed Glas from adCenter team posted a blog entry saying they have tested 100+ servers.

The stats:
Controller: 1
Agents: 42
Servers: 100+
Test duration: 12 hours
Total requests generated: 3.63 Billion
Avg requests/sec: 84 248
Avg agent CPU utilization: 45% (sounds as a good load)

And this is done with Visual Studio Team System.
