K6 as part of enterprise toolkit

K6 exe is free to use for an enterprise without any licenses/cost? Am recommending k6 to a friend of mine, thought of double checking before I do so.

  • They are not looking for k6 cloud.
  • Plan is to support provide test results to devs. For devs to interact, there will be a UI app keeping k6 OSS executable as backend.
  • Tests will get executed on their dev machines as well as on the azure devops pipelines(not targeting production env).


Hi @vipin_in, see the following thread for a similar discussion: K6 licensing AGPLv3

What you’re describing sounds like it would fit within acceptable OSS use, without requiring a commercial license. I’d however recommend that your friend’s company evaluate what works for them in terms of licensing, support etc.

Hope this helps!
