Rules on Stress and vulnerability testing

  • Posted February 25, 2014

Hi there, we have a couple of large Wordpress and Drupal sites that have a large number of third party modules and plugins. I really want to stress and vulnerability test these sites in the live environment.

What is DO policy, I don’t want to do anything that would potentially block me from your network or even go against any T&C’s.

Is this fine or is it something I should just do locally?

Many thanks,

Hi Dave, <br> <br>I would just generally suggest that you be mindful about what you’re are doing when engaging in stress testing. If it starts effecting other droplets, we may have to take some kind of action. If that happens, feel free to file a support ticket and explain what’s up.
