The above is the description of HW, that we need to reach, hopefully,
 the 50-100 K number of loading clients. Still, other bottlenecks may
be discovered
during the planned experiments, but this is the goad to reach it in
several months.

Currently, we have done only 10-15 K clients (added to multi-handle),
that we believe due to our HW limitations. Total number of clients,
that is used may be several times higher due to the clients doing
their after url fetching "sleeping" timeouts.
