All you pay for is the protocol and its #user license.

So web and multimedia is the bundle you buy.

You have 4 protocols that comes with this bundle:
Media player
Real player
web click and script
web http/html

You cannot open controller unless you have vuser license.

LR is purchase is composed of three things.

Monitors and controller
Protocol bundle &
number of virtual users.

Licenses will be installed on a controller machine....then you will be able to loadtest the application for the number of vusers you have procured the licenes.

Let me know, if you have any queries?

controller doesn't have inbuilt license for vuser.
so for vusers we need to buy LR webmedia which will also has a protocol support...

sneha latha,

I suggest you to contact local HP sales folks for more clarification.

I did not understand your concern.

technically speaking, Its only controller which is licensed.

VUGEN--used to create scripts, no license restriction.

Controller---To run the load scenarios.

This has license of protocol and Vusers.

If you buy Web & multimedia protocol.....you can run only scripts created using http/html for the total number of virtual users, your controller has license.

To summarize, you need to buy;

Protocol bundle
controller
Number of virtual users.

LR software comes with VUGen, controller and analysis.

I hope it's bit clear now...
