Slow page load times after enabling throttling
I have taken a look at the wiki and taken advantage of the throttling settings to help against DDoS attacks.
Anyways, when I enable per client throttling, page load times are very slow. Everything else is normal, load, etc, just pages load very slow.
Here is my current configuration for per client throttling:
Per Client Throttling
Static Requests/second 10
Dynamic Requests/second 1
Outbound Bandwidth (bytes/sec) 1000
Inbound Bandwidth (bytes/sec) 1000
Connection Soft Limit 25
Connection Hard Limit 30
Grace Period (sec) 30
Banned Period (sec) 3000
Any suggestions on this? Also, are these settings intended only be enabled during an on-going DDoS attack?
This is occurring on a CentOS 5 VPS BTW
Thanks in advanced!
