Is there an application to test a website and/or a directory/subdirectory site on a hard drive to point out the possiblities of endless loop/recursion/crawling of a search engine or spider which could totally decimate available bandwidth/usage limitations?

Without knowing the code that controls the visiting crawler you'll never know if it's stuck in a loop.  All you can really do is monitor your sites activity and if you see a bot hanging out for longer than normal times, you should block thier IP.

I would think that most crawlers like google or yahoo would be smart enough to not get stuck in a loop.
