Internal high load simulation

I am experiencing a situation where I want to create an elastic cloud for a website. Lets say I build an infrastructure that automatically adds droplets (and an nginx loadbalancer). There is no way for me to test this in a scalable fashion (ie from 500-100,000 requests). So I won't be able to test my infrastructure before deployment. The only way would be by spending money on huge server bursts from other droplets (or another cloud) which would needlessly put load on your system. I would like to see a feature to test cloud load internally (i.e. never leaving the farm, or my own virtual environment). This way, I could test my system as well as not waste your external resources.

    Hi Max,

    Unfortunately this is out of our scope but there are a number of free tools available that will allow you to create a load on to your web servers by sounding of thousands of requests per second which are very light weight.
