Would you be able to clarify what an extractor does, and what they may be used for?
I’ve been reading the link below, but I don’t think I’m fully understanding what it is.

Extractors are not specific to StresStimulus. They are elements of any load testing tool.

They are mainly used for correlating dynamic session variables (such as session ids or tokens).
