If I recall correctly, httperf cycles around from the beginning of the
session file if you ask for more than 1000 sessions. For example, if
you ask for 1200 sessions and your file has 1000 sessions defined,
then the sessions generated would be 1, 2, ..., 999, 1000, 1, 2, ...,
199, 200. If this is okay with you, then you can generate any number
of sessions.

However, if you want to define more than 1000 sessions in the sessions
file itself, then I guess you will have to modify the limit defined in
the source code somewhere, but the consequences of this are unknown to
