Can anyone explain to me what the "Maximum connect burst length" report in
the httperf output is? It's not clear from a cursory inspection of the
code, and does not seem to be influenced by the --burst-length and
--num-calls parameters. Is it something that can be or should be limited
under some circumstances?
Also, I think there is a small mistake in the httperf manual page. The
description of the --burst-length option goes:
Specifies the length of bursts. Each burst consists of N calls
to the server. The exact meaning of this parameter depends on
the workload generator. For regular request-oriented work-
loads, see the description of option
and ends right there in mid-sentence.
