How to setup a different CSV file for each JMeter engine?

If you want to use multiple JMeter engines with a different CSV file per JMeter engine, you will need to upload a different file for each JMeter engine and use a parameter to differentiate each file. Each JMeter engine uses a distinct parameter ${__P(InstanceID)}. Please note that the InstanceID values start from 1 for the JMeter engines.

In the example above, in case you are using two JMeter engines, you can upload files named file1.csv and file2.csv. In the CSV Filename field you should specify: file${__P(InstanceID)}.csv. The first JMeter engine will read file1.csv. The second will read file2.csv. ​​
