I did not say we should use ab. I just said warp has a problem when we
use ab.

Agreed. But I have already understand what its command arguments
mean. The following slide describes it.


The real problem of httperf to me is
- it is using select().
- it does not support IPv6.

I should point out that this URL is not public now. Probably this is
accidental. I guess that you should re-open it.

I tried http-load-tester before. Its documentation is not good enough
at this momemnt. But I could execute http-load-tester
somehow. Unfortunately, the results does not contains *units*. So, I
cannot understand what the results mean.
