NeoLoad Licensing

For any questions on NeoLoad pricing and licensing, please contact .

Cost of the License

The cost of a NeoLoad license depends on:

  1. The maximum number of simultaneous virtual users (VU) required for the NeoLoad Controller

    Estimate which license is right for your needs with the VU Calculator (Virtual User).

  2. The number of optional modules selected

    Each module allow you to test a specific protocol (Protocol Module), to monitor the application environment during the test (Monitoring Module), to integrate with other tools (Integration Module) and to collaborate (Collaboration Module).
  3. The type of license

    Standard License – This type of license can be used to test 1 application at a time.

    Shared License – This type of license is installed on a Neotys Team Server and permits multiple users to share VUs across several machines (controllers) to support concurrent testing (with a minimum of 50VUs per Controller).
  4. The license duration

    For Standard licenses we offer both permanent and rental licensing options.
    The Shared license type is only available as a permanent license.

    *HTTP/S is included with NeoLoad and does not require an additional protocol module.

Rental Licenses

Daily Rental

Daily rentals are available for a minimum of four (4) days. A rental day is a 24-hour session running from the first test launch. After license activation, testing days must be consumed within 10 X days of the initial license term (for instance, a 5 days rental can be used for a period of 50 days following the license activation).

Term Rental

Term Rental licenses are defined for a month, a quarter or a year (consecutive days).

All rental licenses must be used within one year of the purchase date.

The rental period starts when the license is activated. For more information about Term license pricing, please contact us at .

Support and Maintenance

Basic Support

Basic support is standard and included with every license purchase:

  • Valid for 6 months
  • Includes upgrades for minor versions
  • Email support

Gold Support

Gold Support must be purchased separately and is active for a period of 12 months. Gold support includes:

  • Upgrades for major and minor versions
  • Access to bug fixes, feature requests, priority email and telephone support
  • Direct upgrade of virtual users’ capacity: cost to license additional virtual users is the net difference between the cost of the current number of VUs and the new number of VUs on the current price list
  • Gold support is automatically renewable

Note: The support level for the entire license configuration must be the same. For example if the controller has Gold Support all protocols and modules must also have Gold Support.
