I'm currently trying to benchmark a cluster of Tomcat servers using
httperf 0.8 with a session logfile.
The number of requests seems to be correct as long as I'm using 
http-version=1.0. If I use http 1.1 there are a lot more requests but 
the correct number of replies. Example:

httperf --client=0/1 --server=beans01 --port=9070 --uri=/ --rate=1 
--send-buffer=4096 --recv-buffer=16384 --session-cookies 
Maximum connect burst length: 1
Total: connections 20 requests 67 replies 20 test-duration 15.629 s

httperf --client=0/1 --server=beans01 --port=9070 --uri=/ 
--http-version=1.0 --rate=1 --send-buffer=4096 --recv-buffer=16384 
--session-cookies --wsesslog=1,1.000,listekurz.txt
Maximum connect burst length: 4
Total: connections 20 requests 20 replies 20 test-duration 15.822 s

However, these extra requests never seem to get to my apache (used as a 
load balancer). Does this mean httperf's counting is wrong or does is 
mean I am missing something?
