[httperf] Flag --period with option 'e'

Hi,

I have a doubt about --period=e
The Poisson's formula is this.
[image: f(k; \lambda)=\frac{\lambda^k e^{-\lambda}}{k!},\,\!]

- *e* is the base of the natural logarithm (*e* = 2.71828...)
- *k* is the number of occurrences of an event - the probability of which
is given by the function
- *k*! is the factorial of *k*
- λ is a positive real number, equal to the expected number of
occurrences that occur during the given interval. For instance, if the
events occur on average 4 times per minute, and you are interested in the
number of events occurring in a 10 minute interval, you would use as your
model a Poisson distribution with λ = 10×4 = 40.

I would like to know which value is used to constant K ???

For example,

#httperf --server www --period e0.1

e0.1 means value of lambda.

What K's value ???

Thank you

Ricardo
