I've tryed to load one of our relay with the shell scripts used on 
Settings was :
# max concurrent curls to kick off
# how long to stay connected (in seconds)
# how long to sleep between each curl, can be decimal  0.5
Here is our mountpoint definition on the tested relay :
We are using icecast 2.3.0 under Debian/GNU Linux (kernel 2.4.24-grsec) 
on a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+ with 512 Mo of memory.
Any idea ?

Bests regards,
