All our software is delivered by downloading it from our web site. Download PureLoad and an evaluation license (PureLoad Enterprise) will be sent to you automatically.
Purchasing a license will expand capacity to the limits specified by the license.
The license is delivered by e-mail.
For PureLoad Enterprise licenses that are locked to an IP we need a technical contact person and an IP address of the naming server in order to finish issuing the license (this will happen straight after you bought the license in the web-shop).
PureLoad is license based and the cost of the license is based on the number of virtual clients (VC) that are bought.
With one PureLoad license you can load test one system at a time.
There are two types of licenses, the personal license and a non-personal license locked to an IP-address.
The non-personal license is used with PureLoad Enterprise and restricts PureLoad usage as follows:
- IP address of the host that run the PureLoad Naming server (License control server)
All other servers, as well as the Console, can be used from any host that can connect to the Naming server.
- Max numbers of virtual clients (Worker Threads)
The maximum total number of virtual clients (Worker Threads) that can be used distributed over any number of hosts.
- Time period
License bound to a specific time period (only applicable for rental).
The personal license restricts PureLoad usage to one specified individual person, the person that the license has been issued for. Also this license is locked to a specified max number of threads.
More information on the non-personal license can be found in the PureLoad License Agreement.
PureLoad Support and Upgrade agreement
Buying a license give you the right to use the product according to specification and license agreement.

How does rental work?
- Prepare your load test session using the free evaluation copy of PureLoad or using PureTest.
- Order a license for the period you will be running the test.
- You will now be able to run the test during the period specified in the license file.
In PureLoad the term virtual client is the same as one Worker Thread, which might correspond to one or more virtual users dependent on the test case (Scenarios) that is executed by the Worker Thread. There is no limitation on how the virtual client may be distributed over hardware, processors or threads.
