I have a small webserver written in C. We used it in a projekt at the
university here in Koblenz just to generate load on the network: You call it
with urls like http://blah.fasel.dom/file10k and it spits out 10k bytes of
random data. I think it can easily be adapted to curls needs. Of course it
runs under linux and maybe must be ported to other OSs, but it's at least a
thing to start with. Download if from
