+want to start small).</p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Enter 'vmstat 10' for Tools. This
+indicates the measurement tools that will be run on the driver machine.
+It's a good idea to keep an eye on the driver cpu utilization.</p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">Now enter 30, 30, 30 for the Ramp
+up, Steady State and Ramp down times. This is a very short test run.
+For normal runs, you may need a ramp up of 200 seconds and a steady
+state of at least 600 seconds during which measurements are made.</p>
+    <p style="margin-bottom: 0in;">For current systems, the time
+between client startup of 200 milliseconds is good enough. Some web
+servers or slower systems may not be able to accept connections very
+frequently. In that case we may want to increase this value to 1000
+milliseconds.</p>
