[httperf] How to simulate real workload like curve?

Hi Cooky

The current released version of httperf (0.9.0) does not have an option to generate a variable load with a single client. You could either modify httperf (e.g., the -period option) to include this functionality, or use multiple httperf clients in a coordinated manner to achieve something like it (a series of small increments or decrements in the workload intensity).

Now I can use httperf generate only constant workload by setting the rate(user session/s) then test my system performance.

I'd like to know how to use httperf to simulate real workload like a curve?
Is it possible to do like this?
