The httperf manpage specifies the following function for the "server-
name" command-line option:
Specifies the (default) server name that appears in
header of every request sent by httperf. Without
the host name (or IP address) specified by option --
The string passed as the "server-name" argument is copied into conn-
>fqdname in conn_init (conn.c:51 in httperf-0.8). But, in core_send
(core.c:973), the "Host:" header is set to conn->hostname. Shouldn't
conn->fqdname be used instead?
