or use a normal cache proxy tester that reads a list of urls from a file.
you can take a "access.log" file of squid use "cat access.log|gawk
'{print $7}' >/tmp/urls_list.txt"

but i do advise you to not do a stress test on other people resources
without their approval.
it can cost other people money while using some dummy VM's with nginx on
them can do the trick for your basic needs.
if you do stress test you better plan it and by doing so know the
results and consequences.
