we just dont need to test the speed of the connection but its ability to
maintain a certain level of traffic.  Given that this is our first large
client we want to ensure its reliability under load.

Before we go live with this connection, we would like to test the connection's bandwidth over a three day period.  My first thought is to write a simple script using wget to pass various sized files back and forth and to run this script on 5-10 servers on both ends to simulate the traffic.  I am beginning to have some second thoughts as to if this will be sufficient.  Anyone have any ideas as to another method which might be more efficient for such a test?
