There are few considerations:

How to determine the sampling rate of a customized signal source?
I designed a customized signal source which should output two 1ms pulses
every 10ms. If I do not know the sampling rate of the customized module, I
do not know how many elements I should put into the out* buffer for
generating the two 1ms pulses.
To make the discussion easy, let’s assume there is rate-limiting block
throttle, USRP etc) in your flowgraph.
1). When your parameters above are described in time (example 1ms, 10ms
etc), it is very likely that you will need to configure “Sample Rate”
(which is samp_rate) as one of the variables of your custom block
2). If you need 1ms pulses, this means your samp_rate must not be lower
In fact your samp_rate must be multiple of 1kHz.
You may want to put a runtime check on this.
3). When you say “should output two 1ms pulses every 10ms”, does it
it output one 1ms pulse every 5ms ?
Let me assume yes to proceed with the discussion.
Says, the amplitude of the pulse is 1V.
4). When samp_rate=1kHz, then your custom block will output one 1V and
four 0V in every five outputs.
This means you need to “set_output_multiple(5)”
5). When samp_rate=10kHz, then your custom block will output ten 1V and
forty 0V in every fifty outputs.
This means you need to “set_output_multiple(50)”.
6). To generalize item 4 and 5 above, you need to
“set_output_multiple( samp_rate / 200 );”
… (many more)
This gives you some idea to start with, the rest is up to you to figure
