Subject constant through put?

New to JMeter, so be gentle.


I have a very simple test.  I want to hit the home page of my application
with 40 requests per second.  I am using remote testing, with jmeter-server
on three UNIX environments, and just running the test from my windows box.
There doesn't appear to be an issue with generating the load, but I am
having problems in controlling the load, i.e. getting it steady at 40
requests per second.


The approach I took was a Thread Group with 200 threads, a http request just
to hit the home page, and a Constant Throughput timer with a target through
put of 12 samples a minute.


My theory was 200 threads, (users) * 12 iterations per min = 2400 request
per min, i.e. 40 request per sec. However the test appears to be generating
a lot more that 40 request per second.  


Any ideas on what might be wrong, or have I missed something.



Any help/advice appreciated
