Subject Re: Rampup period for all iterations
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2014 05:22:34 GMT

It actually gets worse than that. The looping behavior means that tx will be throttled by
your servers ability to process requests. The throughput shaping timer is good for slowing
things down to a particular tx rate but it cannot correct for back pressure from the server.
The only way to do that is have each tx start independently from all other requests. Unfortunately
*even* that will not give you the desired tx rate.

See for more details
