Load simulation on the Big-IP LTM VE

I am using Big-IP LTM Virtual Edition running on VMWare. Also using C.NET and iControl SDK to query the statistics from the Virtual Machine. Using the samples I am successfully able to get the results from the VM, however the values are mostly zero. How to simulate the load on the underlying virtual servers? Are there any existing tools used for this purpose in the VM before testing with the real device in Prod environment?

    I'd second Nitass's suggestion for apache bench if you want something simple you can run from the LTM command line for basic testing.
