You could have a look at varnishreplay to "replay" earlier recorded
varnishlogs. If you also want to synthesize traffic you could also check
out siege and curl-loader.
If you have a high hitrate in your cache you'll most likely end up
benchmarking the tools rather then varnish. I think I measured siege to
be ~3x slower then varnish.
