Working with Datapools
If you do not use a datapool during script playback, each virtual tester sends the same
literal values to the server (the values that were captured when you recorded the
For example, suppose you record a session script that sends order number 53328 to
a database server. If 100 virtual testers run this script, order number 53328 is sent to
the server 100 times. If you use a datapool, each virtual tester can send a different
order number to the server.
