I'm glad you responded.  What I forgot to mention is that as we perform 
tests, we shut down the other mapping servers (right now I believe Arc 
Server is being tweaked so Apache/MapServer and GeoServer are down). 
Also, if you start using those links for your own tests then our numbers 
will be off (if you hit MapServer while we benchmark, then GeoServer and 
ArcServer numbers will not be comparable).
