Licensing Eggplant Functional for Use with Virtual Users

To run Eggplant Functional virtual users (VUs), your injector(s) must include an installation of Eggplant Functional and be licensed using Eggplant Functional Drive-enabled licenses.

Each Eggplant Functional VU uses an instance of Eggplant Functional to communicate with the system under test (SUT). The Eggplant Performance injector automatically starts an instance of Eggplant Functional per VU.

Eggplant Performance includes a tool to make licensing multiple copies of Eggplant Functional easy. You need to run this tool only once for each injector on which there is an unlicensed copy of Eggplant Functional. After Eggplant Functional has been licensed, the injector can run Eggplant Functional VUs during tests.

Note: If you are using floating licenses for Eggplant Functional, see Using Eggplant Functional Floating Licenses with Eggplant Performance for information about this configuration.

  1. Select the injector family you want in the Workspace tree of Eggplant Performance Studio. This displays information about the injector family in the main window.
  2. Display the Advanced Settings tab, and then the Eggplant Functional tab, and enter the hostname or IP address of the Eggplant Functional floating license server location in the Eggplant Functional License Host field shown highlighted below:
