eggPlant Performance emulates real user activity on a system through Virtual Users. Each Virtual User executes a script, or sequence of scripts (workflow) that contain actions which replicate a real user's interaction with an application. Although a real user requires a single desktop or workstation client, many Virtual Users can be simulated from a single client machine.

It is important to understand the distinction between a Virtual User (represented by the VirtualUser class) and a Virtual User Script (represented by the VirtualUserScript class). A Virtual User Script defines a series of actions that a user performs when interacting with a client/server application; whereas a Virtual User runs Virtual User Scripts during test execution. A Virtual User can run a single Virtual User Script, or a sequence of Virtual User Scripts. In eggPlant Performance, a sequence of Virtual User Scripts is called a Workflow.
