I already saw your blog post about this and thought of leaving a comment.

It is tempting and seems to make sense to do this kind of benchmark or load testing. I have been there myself. 

However, benchmarking Seaside is difficult (you are essentially testing session creation speed). 
Actual performance depends on many factors such as the adaptor, image, vm and OS being used.

Please search the Seaside and/or Pharo mailing lists for more information.

You have to believe that it is possible to get good real life production performance, it is sometimes just a bit more difficult than starting an image and hitting it hard.
