[httperf] Did I understand correctly about Httperf workload?

I use httperf 0.9.0. And I used this command to send httperf workload to server.
httperf --verbose --hog --timeout=150 --client=0/1 --server= --port=80 --rate=6 --send-buffer=4096 --recv-buffer=16384 --wsesslog=4000,0.000,/home/input.txt
the contents of my input.txt file are: 
/app1/servlets?para1=15&para2=50 think=6.8
/app1/servlets?para1=44&para2=50 think=2.557
/app1/servlets?para2=71&para1=111 think=7.719
/app1/servlets?para2=38&para1=138 think=1.118
And my Server is set "Keep Alive On" means allow persistent connection (more than 1 request per connection).
Therefore in this test
1) Httperf will generate the workload: each user connection has 1 user session, and each user session has 10 requests (same as the contents of input file).
2) The number of active connections = the number of Active sessions.
3) So rate 6 means httperf will generate 6 user connection per second (or 6 user session per second) to this server.
Did I understand correctly?
