Hi Ken

There currently is no option to attach a file to an httperf upload.  I agree that it would be a useful feature, but someone would have to implement it.

Subject: [httperf] How can pass an upload file to httperf?

I want to test http PUT with an upload file, much like the curl -T option. I'm able to upload some content using the -wsesslog option (and having some text content in the file), however, this seems kind of hacky and limited.

I was hoping the function would work something like:

$ curl -v -X PUT http://localhost:33306/files/22452b09-19cc-46f8-9bc9-cc301ece319f -T yosemite07.JPG
* About to connect() to localhost port 33306
*   Trying connected
* Connected to localhost ( port 33306
> PUT /files/22452b09-19cc-46f8-9bc9-cc301ece319f HTTP/1.1
> User-Agent: curl/7.15.4 (i686-pc-cygwin) libcurl/7.15.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8b zlib/1.
> Host: localhost:33306
> Accept: */*
> Content-Length: 2001890
> Expect: 100-continue
< HTTP/1.1 100 Continue
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
