The tool proved to be very helpful to me in my performance analysis of Web
In one expt, it displayed a test duration of 406 secs.
I ran 'top' and 'sar' on the web server, and also on the client machine,
on which httperf was running.
I found that when the web server has stopped utilizing cpu (ie, the test
is completed) , then also the httperf was running for some 6 -8 secs with
cpu util of 100 % on the client machine.
Why does httperf take extra time ( in this case 6-8 secs) , even after the
web server has stopped handling the requests..
Any kind of help will be most valauble.
