Stressing WordPress

A bit of a geek moment:

80,000 requests per minute to my personal WordPress stack (this blog) in a synthetic stress test with an average page response under 300 milliseconds.

CDN + HAProxy + mod_security + Varnish + nginx + php7-fpm + MySQL 5.7 on a set of very modest virtual servers hosted at Linode.
