Stress testing

We are proud of our limits

While doing performance testing for one of our dedicated commercial deployments today we decided to stress test our live community main-net endpoints. 😈

We’ve hit a limit and unstable behavior for algod API at ~9k rps but after some L3LB, L7LB and Linux kernel tuning AlgoNode can happily deliver 15.5 thousand 😎, live (uncached) algod GET requests via Cloudflare with 69ms avg (63ms median) response time (EU region). All this on production system using test traffic that replicates a production sample.

⚠️ No free API requests were harmed in the making of this performance test ⚠️
