I have 1 Gbps so I know it won't be easy at least I don't think.

What would be the best way to do this ?

Run both fast.com speedtest and dslreports.com/speedtest on as many different systems as you can simultaneously. :D

And if your upload is less than 1Gbps, you can choke it a lot easier by uploading full bore and then hammer it with speedtests.

I wish there was a test out there that simulated a really heavy load on a network locally and over the internet.

Oh well.

There probably is out there, but not for free since the bandwidth alone costs at those rates.
sounds like he wants to ddos someone or make a botnet :) i really dont think they are serious as my suggestion would have worked fine. a single app to do it Yes but this isnt a blackhat site. just seed a iso of a linux iso on piratebay, there are so many things they could try but how many have they tried?

And no. I just want to test my connection to see how much it can handle.
