Bulk load testing in regular intervals

I need to write a script which can send files via sftp communication continously for half an hour or any given duration of time. I have already written a batch file to send multiple file via SFTP.
but I need to know how can we set a duration of half an hour through shell script. Can we use sleep command for this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Code:
sec=1800  # 30 minutes
pid=$$
sleep $sec && kill $pid & > dev/null
while true
do
   # run your sftp script
done

The child process sleeps for $sec, wakes up and terminates the parent process.

Thank you Jim for your help. I have tried to run following script:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
sec=3  # 30 minutes
pid=$$
sleep $sec && kill $pid & > dev/null
while true
do
  echo "hello world"
done

but it shows following error:
delay.sh: line 8: syntax error near unexpected token `done'
delay.sh: line 8: `done'
arguments must be process or job IDs

I am trying to run this script on cygwin. I am not sure if these errors are related to this.
Thanks
