Remember OLO's FakeFull for MetaMod?
Fakefull 1.3 (downloads: 25781) is a small Metamod plugin which makes fake traffic on your server. It creates fakeclients in spectator mode (so they don't affect the gameplay) who join and leave server to keep always some number of players. Maybe it's a bit unfair but there is a lot of ppl who are only looking for full servers. With this stuff you should have your server faster filled and frequently visited.
FakeClients is FakeFull:Source for MetaMod:Source. I wrote this plugin as a favor for SoopaFlyYT at PAF and thought I'd share in case anyone else was interested.

Any way to stop it spamming "xxxxx is joining the server" just for the fake people?

No way to stop it, but the plugin had a bug where it kicked all bots when someone joined, then all except one would rejoin.

I posted an update (Version 1.0.2) that fixes this issue. You will have fewer "xxxx joining" messages now.

No luck with my system.

Fedora Core 4
SourceMM 1.00-RC2 (Linux, glibc-2.3.4)

Metamod loads fine.

meta list says:

meta list
-Id- Name Version Author Status
[01] - - - ERROR

I know it sees the plugin because if I change the location in metaplugins.ini, it says "NOFILE".

I can provide more info, if you tell me what to look for.
