[Tsung] Calling a %%module:function%% multiple times with same Pid

Hello Pablo,

That is pure genius! That will solve many problems. I have in the
meantime figured out that instead of using ETS tables, I can use the
process dictionary (put/get/erase) and things work then too. For some
reason the Pid changes from call to call sometimes ( <0.72.0> becomes
<6618.72.0> ) in the same session.

Many thanks!

Hi Martin,

there is a new feature available in svn trunk that let
you do exactly that. I think it isn't documented yet,
but take a look at
for some sample usage.

Basically, all you need to do is add a setdynvar
element to your session:
<setdynvars sourcetype="random_number" start="3"
     <var name="rndint" />
That defines a variable named rndint, that can be used
as many times as you need (in that session).

<request subst="true"><http>...%%_rndint%%...
<request subst="true"><http>...%%_rndint%%...
(look at the samples, there are other source types
availables other than random_number, including erlang
