I have a query regarding the timeout option in httperf. Is the timeout
option -global , in the sense I would like to complete the call within 250
ms , so should I specify the timeout as 0.250 or 0.06 .
The doubt arises after I read the manual
" Specifies the amount of time X that httperf is willing to wait
for a server reaction. The timeout is specified in seconds
can be a fractional number (e.g., --timeout 3.5).
Doubt arises here
value is used when establishing a TCP connection, when sending
request, when waiting for a reply, and when receiving a
If during any of those activities a request fails to make
ward progress within the alloted time, httperf considers
request to have died, closes the associated connection or
sion and increases the client-timo error count.
Does this mean the timeout value is used for each of the sections . Eg : 250
ms for establishing a connection, 250 ms for sending a request , 250 ms for
recieving a response etc.
Please help in clarifying the doubt
