Since you are not testing a proxy at the moment (you have the same
settings for --proxy and --origin), your best bet is to enable more
verbose output using --verb_lvl option described at
        http://polygraph.ircache.net/doc/srvopts.html#--verb_lvl

This option can be used at both client and server side. It will print
run-time statistics that may help you with analysis. Level 3 is currently
the best for non-production tests. You can also enable logging using the
--log option and read the log using "lr" tool. The latter is under
construction though.

Depends on what kind of traffic you want to simulate. Checkout the traffic
model described at
        http://polygraph.ircache.net/doc/traffic.html#Traffic_Model

Looking through all the available options and other docs might help as
well. Good places to start are
        http://polygraph.ircache.net/doc/
and, perhaps,
        http://polygraph.ircache.net/idx.html
