Licensing necessity LoadRunner vs Performance-Center

Jump to solution

 

Hi,

I would like to request assistance based on the following situation:

My company has load-test projects which do not require a relatively high quantity of virtual users for load generation:

upto 70 user for Remote protocols like Citrix and RDP and upto 100 VUs for ODBC(Sql) protocol. In addition, we would like to install the LoadRunner(including controller) on a remote server (even if that means that only one tester may use it at a time)

We do not want to commit the resources for installation, server-hosting(and potential required monitoring) as well as the increased pricing that comes with Peformance Center commercial licensing. 

LoadRunner is simpler solution which fits our current needs. However, the licensing prohibits installing LoadRunner on a remote server.

Please advise if there is a means of using LoadRunner on a remote server.

Hi,

There is no difference in the functional capabilities, but there is difference in licensing.

I suggest discussing that with your local sales rep. They know much better than I these details.

If you cannot find any contact drop me a private message and we will take it from there.

Regards,

Shlomi

Hi,

Will LoadRunner on Amazon be a good fit for you?

Hi Shlomi!

Thank you for your suggestions! I have two questions:

1) The application under test resides on a remote server within our company network. Henceforth, the AWS server(where loadrunner is installed) would need to access the remote server within our Network(via LoadRunner RDP protocol). Does that present a problem ?

2) I don't understand the pricing model for the "LoadRunner on Amazon/AWS". Do the hourly rates apply any time the performance-tester is recording user interactions or running a load-test ? Or are the hourly rates 24 hours a day as long as one is subscribed to the service ? How does it work ?

Thank You Very Much for Your Help,

Shai

Hi Shai,

If you can open the application under test to be accessed from outside the company network then AWS is an option. I prefer not going into the pricing model as this is not the area of my expertise 🙂

I assume you won't be able to open the network, I suggest you to contact HPE sales and ask about LoadRunner WW. It sounds like this is the right solution for you. Check out this link: http://www8.hp.com/il/en/hpe/contact/sales.html

Hi Shlomi,

Please, for clarify:

Is there any difference between LoadRunner & LoadRunner WW ? I have not heard of LoadRunner WW. How is it different ?

 

Thank You Shlomi,
