We just released a new primer on GrokOla - Introduction to Siege, a handy open source load testing/benchmarking utility.

Traffic spikes on a web application can occur any time, and it's out of the control of the application developer. Therefore, to ensure that the site can withstand heavy loads, it is good practice to test to determine exactly how a web application will perform in that scenario before it happens. Siege is a great tool to do that with.
