loadgenerate.codeplex.com -- is a load generation utility for generating load of arbitrary protocol in a given pattern. Currently just generates a set of string.

I use a pattern file as:
01/21/2011 00:00;01/21/2011 23:00;linear-constant;100;1

The above generates a load of 100 users constantly till someone kills the program. Change the users to "1" instead of 100 and it will generate load for 1 user.

I run this which receives the reply and prints it out and the output can be checked. This creates a log file according to the setup in log4net configuration. The default configuration has Logs\Messages.txt file.

This logs the threads that are processing the messages and the socket worker threads that receive the information which can be traced to find problems in case of problems during high load.
