Look on the web for netperf - it was specifically designed to do what
you're trying to do...

As for uptime - from the "proc" manpage:

loadavg
The load average numbers give the number of jobs in the run
queue averaged over 1, 5 and 15 minutes. They are the same as the load
average numbers given by uptime(1) and other programs.

-d
