Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to use all the Virtual User Days in a single load test?

No, you can use Virtual User days in several load tests during the same day (in this case they are counted only once), or spread over several days (in this case the amount used each day is deducted from your Virtual User Days balance).

If I purchase new Virtual User Days will the old ones still be usable?

Virtual Users are valid for one year, new virtual users will be added to the existing amount

Which protocols can be run with Virtual User Days?

Virtual User Days are valid for all protocols except DCOM/COM, GUI and Templates.
