  • Load Test

    We are trying to setup a load testing scenario for our donate pages. However, since we have to directly post to Click and Pledge, the load testing service will not let us configure that domain since we don't own it (understandably). My thought process was to create a "middle man" page, that for testing purposes we submitted to, which then in turn posted to the Faas endpoint. Obviously, we would never do this in production as it would require us to be PCI compliant and defeat the purpose of Faas.

    I'm submitting to the "verification" URL as mentioned in the manual. However, you can see that the results say "Insecure", even though we are using the exact same form in production today. Is this type of setup not possible, or do you maybe have a sample file I could use as my "post" script, which then submits to the Faas endpoint. We are using PHP. Any direction you can provide?

    Good day!

    The SSL determination by the verify server may not be accurate. We have seen that the native function that is being used at times provides invalid response.

    While the set up is possible and will work, in your case you may simply post it to a page on your server? posting to us will not accomplish much as by doing you may actually trigger our security alerts - load testing is typically done with simultaneous connections which in practice is not realistic. Our system may think that it is under a DOS attack.

    Our stress testing is done during off hours and performed on a mirrored site so as not to have any negative impact on our regular transactions. We do stress testing of our platform on a quarterly basis and with each release as part of PCI certification.

    In your case I suggest that you create a page that simply shows the posts so you collect the information and click on submit which will take you to a page showing you what you have posted.

    Realistically speaking you are not testing the "form" itself as you are testing the time it takes to load the form. You should just test the form loading to make sure your servers can handle the load. I hope that makes sense.

    We have had clients in the past where their server crashed when they were under heavy load - meaning the form would not load and as such was not posting to us.

    Let me know if we can be of any further assistance.
