Sprinting | Basics

Sprinting is a simple HTTP (or SSL) request to a page in your app or your RESTful API. Here are some examples:

You can provide paths and include query arguments too. By default, Blitz will automatically choose a location from around the world to run the sprint. The result is the full contents of the page, in a Firebug like view, along with the response time. The DNS resolution is done from the chosen location and is useful if you app is distributed around the world.

Identifying you

Blitz automatically adds X-User-ID and X-User-IP headers to the request since the hits are not originating from you. In addition, we also add the X-Powered-By: header so you know the where the hits are coming from. Especially when rushing, this helps the app owners who is responsible for the requests.
