Subject [Slightly OT] How good is the mod_dosevasive default
Date Fri, 12 Jun 2009 17:00:21 GMT
I am planning to put up a website which, like any other website, may get DoS
attacked. I have installed mod_dosevasive to protect against some degree of
application-layer DoS.

I understand that here are the default settings of mod_dosevasive -

<IfModule mod_dosevasive20.c>
    DOSHashTableSize    3097
    DOSPageCount        2
    DOSSiteCount        50
    DOSPageInterval     1
    DOSSiteInterval     1
    DOSBlockingPeriod   10

Any experience how good this default works for the average website? I would
prefer to not spend time making changes to this default.
