Community License

Jump to solution

I understand that HPE provides Loadrunner/Performance center community license (50 perpetual vusers) for all protocols.

I wanted to understand:

1. What are the restrictions on its use?

2. Can this community license be used for commerical purposes? For example: can a service company use it for small tests for customers?

3. If not, can a company with inhouse performance testing team use the community license to test their commercial products/applications as long as they stay within 50 vusers load?

Hi,

 

The community license is free for unlimited time - Available with 50 virtual users (VUsers) for all protocols included except DCOM and GUI.

About the commercial queries, the anwser is no. The statement in the in Additional License Authorizations is:


HP LoadRunner includes a community bundle license limited in use for the purpose of test development and proof-of-concept execution. This community bundle includes all protocols except for COM/DCOM, Templates and GUI Virtual Users. The community bundle is provided without support or warranty of any kind, and commercial use is strictly prohibited.
