Hi Tom,

Using unique URLs for multiple load URL requests against the same server with the standard libUrl library allows you to *initiate* multiple requests at once, but the requests will still only be sent to the server one at a time in the background.

tsNet will send the requests to the server in parallel, which can significantly decrease the time taken to perform the requests (assuming the server can cope with the load).

If you want to see what I mean, download the following stack:

Open this up in LC Indy edition, and click the “Get Foreign Exchange Rates” button several times to get an average total time.

Then disable tsNet by running the following command in a message box:

dispatch “revunloadlibrary” to stack “tsnetliburl”

Then click the button several more times and compare the time difference.
