Problem:

What is the purpose of Keyword"Init" in a script?"

Resolution:

The Keyword ‘ TInit’ is the SilkPerformer"s default initialization transaction.
A transaction is set as an initialization transaction by using the keyword begin instead of the transaction frequency parameter, therefore you can rename TInit or change the script so that another transaction runs as the startup transaction. Any function that is placed in the transaction defined as begin will only be accessed once by each virtual user during a loadtest so it should be used for information which only needs to be set once e.g.browser type, the HTTP headers or login information.
