Server load tests on Linux

Hi all,

I'm trying to perform some load tests on a Web server, so I have created a
little script performing parallel connections to the server and getting the
responses, all this using httpc, but when this number gets large this
message starts to pop out:

=ERROR REPORT==== 9-Dec-2010::18:30:14 ===
HTTPC-MANAGER<httpc_manager> handler (<0.297.0>) successfully started for
unknown request #Ref<> => canceling

Is there a limit in the number httpc is able to treat? Or maybe I have to
change something in my OS (Ubuntu 10.10)?
