Posted May 31, 2013 4.2k views
Hi everyone, I made a load testing utility that starts a digital ocean instances and is used to benchmark your site. I hope someone finds it useful: https://github.com/rozap/minnowswithmachineguns

Haha. Potential for misuse: high

good job though. :)

Very cool! But does DO allow high levels of outbound traffic? Wouldn’t it trigger a flag for potential outbound DoS, which violates their Acceptable Use Policy?

I see you have a disclaimer about this in your GitHub documentation, but curious how large a test you’ve tried.
