*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.

A full overview of Protocol Support, Support Servers, and Integrations per edition is available on the Protocol Support Page.

Your requirements - our offer

There is some work to be done before we can give you an adequate offer that fulfil your business and technical requirements. Depending on your needs there might be a number of things that needs to be discussed and decided before we can issue you a quote.

Key points are around:

  • Usage of licenses - Automated Test, Manual Test
  • What to use the licenses for - Function Test, Integration Test, Performance Test, Active Monitoring
  • Size of licenses - How many persons, how many testbeds, capacity of licenses
  • Environment - Virtualized or bare metal.

PureTest Pro and PureLoad Enterprise Developers Edition

The simplest case is for PureTest Pro and PureLoad Enterprise Developers Edition where you need to decide the number of users or simultaneous testbeds you need licenses for.

PureLoad Enterprise

PureLoad Enterprise can be supplied in a vast number of shapes depending on your needs.

Number of Licenses

The number of licenses will depend on how many simultaneous tests that you want to have ongoing. There is normally one license per lab or testbed. One license can be used for running traffic towards several tests-beds, but only one at the time.

Virtual Clients

PureLoad Enterprise is licensed by the number of virtual clients that is used to produce load on your application. To determine the corrects number of virtual clients we often need your traffic model and a discussion on how you simulate traffic.

Special Features

Sometimes special features are needed for specific testing and these often turn up in a proof-of-concept or in discussions around your simulation and traffic model.

PureLoad can easily and fast provide you with the special features you need.

Dimensioning and Installation

PureLoad is normally deployed in virtualized environments. We can help with a range of services. We dimension your VM for your type of traffic and simulation needed. We help do dimension and design of your test environment solution and how it should be built so that the environment supplies realistic traffic without strains on the system under test.

We do also install and configure the PureLoad software if wanted and check that everything works ok before handing over the system.

Training

Although PureLoad is easy to learn we do recommend some initial training to give you a fast start. For complex testing like SIP/MSRP we recommend a two day course and two day on-the-job training.

Test Support

During the first 6-12 months it is often good to have some hours for test support.

Our senior engineers can help with discussions on how best simulate certain situations and specific traffic models, how best to structure tests, help with trouble shooting, etc. 

First Offer

Having discussed the points above we can now start and put together a first version of the offer.
