let me clarify that this sampler doesn't need a  different file per thread: The generator
reads the access log and creates one new access log file. This new file is ordered by IP,
and each thread knows its correspoding OFFSET inside the file.

Sorry, I realise that "file handle" was ambiguous.

I did not mean entries in the the file system table on disk or in
memory, I meant the handle to the file used by Java.
It will still use the same number of open file handles (e,g,
FileInputStream plus supporting FD etc.) within the JVM.
Though perhaps some resources can be shared by the JVM if all the
files are the same, so it might be slightly cheaper than individual
