To _measure_ those things, I'd probably use tcpdump, possibly plus some of the NTP traffic
graphing scripts that various folks have contributed. For actually generating a load, one
can either script calls via ntpdate or similar, or simply add the server to the NTP pool,
especially if your IP gets vended to the Turk Telekom netblocks. :-)
