At WWW2007 last year I had a discussion with a couple people about this
very topic. Here is a bit of what I came up with.
A flat text file with the data entered in a row.
Would need a new option to specify the file name. If the file doesn't
exist we create it, with a "header" row. If it does exist, we just
append our data to the end of it.
Thus each consecutive run of httperf grows the data set.
I think this is the most appropriate solution for global "end of
It would also be nice to collect a histogram of the measures from each
connection/session. Thoughts on this?
