How do I load test an environment?

When developing scalable topologies on MightyBox, we encourage you to properly load test all production environments to ensure they perform as expected.

Please note, however, that you cannot load test environments via their *.mightybox.site domains (or via a custom domain that's CNAMED through the mightybox.site alias). Doing so will saturate the shared load balancer and cause your testing tool to report 500 errors before you reach any level of scale.

To execute a successful load test, you must configure the environment with a public IPv4 and update your A records to point directly to this IP.

More detailed guides will be available in the future, but we recommend Loader.io or K6 open source for your testing needs.

If you have any questions or concerns about performing a load test, do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
