[httperf] implementation of exponential distribution in httperf

While I was going through some of the papers on httperf I came across
something which said
"we have done another experiment in workloads with exponential
distribution. Session lengths are exponentially distributed
with mean of 8. The request content is a CPU-intensive CGI script. The
thinktime between requests of the same session is exponentially
distributed with mean value of 5".
I would like to know what does WORKLOAD WITH EXPONENTIAL DISTRIBUTION
mean. I also would like to know how to implement EXPONENTIALLY
DISTRIBUTED SESSION LENGTHS.
help is deeply appreciated.
