Multithreading in kapow.

Post by kaundalsajan10@gmail.com on Thu Sep 13, 2018 11:44 am

I wanted to know is there any way we can achive multithreading or threadpool concept in kapow. Just to boost my data extraction.
Suppose I am extracted 22k records using excel file as input and extracted data from web URL. Here i want to divide 1 single robot to different request to boost the performance. Is there any way we can achive this ?

One robot cannot execute down multiple paths, but you can start a second robot execution from within a robot.

You could have 1 robot that is built to extract from an excel spreadsheet store in an input variable.
A second robot would log into the website, pick up the stored inputs and extract data from the website.
The 1st robot could make a call to execute the second robot when certain criteria are met.  Or, robots could be run sequentially from Management Console.
