Scope: Simulation graph.

The sampler data nodes are used in the simulation graph to describe the different data types that can be sampled to retrieve information with which you can drive the particles behavior.

Those nodes can either be directly inserted in the graph or you can use attribute samplers in the effect interface to manipulate the sampler data.
