Hi, It used to be true that the default measurement frequency was also the minimum. We've changed that to allow more frequent measurements, but apparently not all the documentation reflects that. We'll update the documentation. While technically it would be possible to add some feature to the system to do multiple paris variations at (or close to) the same time, this would add a lot of complications to the code base and to result parsing (which is already not simple). Instead, it is already possible to schedule multiple measurements to run at roughly the same time, which provides an approximation to what you describe here.
