Request limit

Last Updated: Oct 30, 2017 02:14PM CET

We try not to put too much stress on your server while scanning. Our default request limit depends on the speed of your connection, but you can manually adjust this if you are worried that scanning might overload your server.

1. To do this, click on your scan profile and select Scan Settings

Detectify scan settings2. Scroll all the way down to How fast can we go? and click Edit. Here, you can enable request limiting and specify the number of requests per second. All done!

If you have any more questions about how we test your website, drop us a line at!
