LoadRunner License clarification

Hi,

 

We are having two licenses for the LoadRunner Controller. One is perpetual license for 50 users another is 1000 VUDs.

Is it possible to combine 50perpetual + 100 VUDs to get 150 user load for an execution.

 

Best,

Arun

Why do you say that it doesn't work for Performance Center?

 

May you elaborate on it please? How does it not work?

As of PC11.5x, you cannot mix VUDs license with Perpetual license.

 

Refer to latest news about PC12.01 at http://update.external.hp.com/ALM/WhatsNew_Addins_Movies/index.html?StartTabIndex=0#WHAT_NEW_PC_12_0...

The FAQ at https://www.pronq.com/buy/loadrunner seems to disagree with that.

 

To clarify, I would like to ask:

 

The default perpetual license allows up to 50 vusers.

 

So, if we need 51 vusers, are we able to pay only $2 for a single vuser and be able to run the a test with 51 vusers?

Re: LoadRunner License clarification

The link you mentioned refers to LoadRunner. I'm referring to Performance Center in my update.

As for your query, the answer is Yes.

For PC11.5x, What would be the "best" license to buy then now that we can't use the default community license if we buy single VUDs?

Re: LoadRunner License clarification

For 11.5x, ther is no Community license. Community license available starting 12.x version.

It depends on your requirement, as Perpertual and VUDs licenses are two differen types, I would suggest you to contact the hp sales/license team when you are buying the license and they can assist you better. 

Thank you!!
