As long as you perform the queries in a properly asynchronous manner,
i.e. using http_async_client, not necessarily. But yes, HTTP queries are
by nature bureaucratic, since they evolve the establishment of a new
connection socket, etc. Doing something more inline is always better.

sipp is the leading FOSS tool for this. There are a variety of
commercial ones.

That's a meaningless question; way, way, way too many variables.

No, it's not a bad choice.
