I better clarify (4) - i would like to retreive all URL from
a site, but according to (4), have minimum time between two
GETs as to avoid overloading the server. 

Answers to the query:

A). http://www.inria.fr/koala/abaird/oscheme/oscheme.html with
    the  "www-list" scripts (from Anselm.Baird_Smith@inria.fr)

B). http://www.ics.uci.edu/WebSoft/MOMspider/ (MOMspider)
    (from joshuap@sdsc.edu (Joshua Polterock))

C). http://iamwww.unige.ch/~scg/Src/Scripts/  with the
    explore script (diana@seldon.terminus.com (Cookie Monster))

D). Simon Spero <ses@tipper.oit.unc.edu> have a set of programs 
    for benmarking.

E). rst@ai.mit.edu (Robert S. Thau) has written a logfile replay program,
    runs SunOS, which reports the main latency for every 100 transactions,
    and which handle multiple outstanding requests. Found at

F). www2dot from einpost@win.tue.nl (Reinier Post), it might no
    fill the (4) requirement. Contact Reiner Post. Based on libwww2.

BTW, I probably try to use (C). For those interested, i'm running
a gateway (CGI based), which generates HTML pages on the fly. 
I'm interested the above to profile the gateway (written in C).

thanks to all who answered,
