Talking testing, agility and automation... and anything else.


Accidental Load Testing

In my example test automation code, I generally setup the tests to run against my own server. I feel that it would be downright rude to have random folks running these tests against my digital neighbors. I’m happy to have them run against my server… I mean, it’s kind of the point of the thing.

The downside is when folks start tinkering with the code… and maybe change a locator within a loop to see what happens. Like my friend in India @ 202.88.222.186 likely did this morning (well… my morning, anyway), and started PEGGING MY SERVER :)

It’s fine… I do appreciate the accidental load testing
