Cloudflare and Stress Testing our site using


Hi, I’m new to load testing and want to load test our site. was recommended to me as a tool to do this. What do I need to do to prepare our Cloudflare configuration for a stress test? I don’t want to have Cloudflare think that we have a ddos attack.

thanks in advance for any tips or references.


Hi @bbg, there is nothing the team will need to prepare for you to run the test. But, if you want to confirm the times for the tests (what hour/timezone do you intend to run them in) and information about the test clients’ location & request rate, you can login to Cloudflare and share that with Cloudflare Support before the tests so they are aware of the tests. Thank you!


I’ve done this without notification. Nobody yelled at me. It was a relatively quick test.
