We present an analysis of the FEL performances of several working points belonging to three different classes of electron beams driven by the same infrastructure: two high flux working points are relevant to the operation with a linac up to 1 GeV, while both LWFA and PWFA beams have been considered at this same energy for low charge operation. Soft X rays in single spike mode with fluxes up to 1012electrons per shot have been found.
