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!

    your Outbound/Inbound bandwidth have been set too low. try

    Outbound Bandwidth (bytes/sec) 100K
    Inbound Bandwidth (bytes/sec) 50K
