Yes, Polygraph supports that.  SSL layer manual [1] describes how to
configure HTTPS servers.  You can create both plain HTTP and HTTPS
servers in required proportion like this:

  addr[] serverAddrs = ...;

  addr[] plainServerAddrs;
  addr[] sslServerAddrs;
  [ plainServerAddrs, sslServerAddrs: 10% ] = serverAddrs;

  robot.origins = serverAddrs;

This way all servers would get even load.  Another option is to
configure Robots to make more requests to HTTP server than HTTPS:

  robot.origins = [ plainServerAddr, sslServerAddr: 10% ];

Polygraph collects protocol-specific stats, they are included in HTML
