Recording a session
You do not record scripts for performance testing directly as you do GUI scripts.
Instead, you record a session. After recording, Robot generates one or more scripts
from the session.
A Robot recording session contains all of the client requests and server responses
issued from the time you begin recording until the time you stop recording. Robot
stores all of the requests and responses recorded during the session in a session file
(.wch). The session file is sometimes called the "watch" file.
