Ok, I am back at it. Here is what I used:
httperf --server switch --port 80 --uri /jontest.html --wsess=500,100,0
--burst-len 100 --hog
I was not sure if this was doing persistent connections. I need to not
be doing persistent connections.
What I want to do here is simulate a large number of seperate users each
doing one hit and going away. I would like to be able to control the max
number of users who are trying to connect, but if I can't that is fine. I
think the above might be close but it looks like it is only doing 4 users
getting one url each. Because of --max-connections being fixed at 4.
Any help would be very much apreciated.
