How to load-test sitestreams without bumping into any limits


#1

Hi guys,

We are currently using sitestreams to get the streams of our users into our systems, and we’re very happy with them.

However, for upcoming events, we need to make sure that we can handle the load of about 20 tweets per second in peek conditions.
Hence my question: how can we stresstest our systems for a situation like this?

I’m happy to wire up some test accounts and have them mention or DM a sitestream’d account like mad. But I suppose I will run into limitations pretty quickly.

Any advice on this would be more then welcome.

Best regards,

Dieter
