[httperf] request rate steps

thanks Tim for prompt reply.
while going through link I found - "Autobench runs httperf a number of times against         each host"
Does that mean Autobench calls httperf several times with different rates? If this is a case then there is no difference between that and a script which calls httperf no. of times.
I want that there should be any time lag (not a single second) between httperf calls with two different  request rates. Is it possible? My aim to study saturation effect which will get vanish between 2 httperf calls if I call them in a script.

You might take a look at autobench
(https://www.xenoclast.org/autobench/) it is a wrapper for httperf
which lets you specify workloads which increase in steps like you

Otherwise you would probably just have to create a script which runs
httperf several times sequentially with your different rates.
