Hi Menaka,

Yes, you are correct. -+m option is passed to iozone wherein the file
should have the fields mentioned. Here is the brief description of the file

Used  to  specify  a filename that will be used to specify the clients in a
distributed measurement. The file contains one line for each client. The
fields are space delimited. Field 1 is the client name. Field 2 is the
working directory, on  the  client, where Iozone will run. Field 3 is the
path to the executable Iozone on the client.

If the file does not exist the script prompts to create one and take the
number of threads as input.  Hope this helps.
