Subject [users@httpd] mod_conn.c
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2004 23:31:50 GMT

Does anyone on the list use mod_conn.c?  If so, does it work?  I have 
been trying to prove to myself that this thing works all day and can not 
tell that it does anything.  I have enabled it and ran apachebench on 
the server, but it does not appear to deny the requests.  I can see that 
it puts an entry in its file for the IP that is requesting.  I tried 
enabling __DEBUG__ in the module and watching the log of messages, but 
nothing past the init stage was logged.

We have been having issues where one of our web servers will get loaded 
and remove itself from the cluster.  A glance through the logs shows 
that we have been getting massive amounts of requests from a single IP. 
  Most of these have been 404's as they were IIS attack attempts.  We 
block them at the load balancer after we see them.  Also, the load 
balancer is configured to deliver the same IP to the same server over 
short amounts of time.  This is all good, but we would like to keep the 
slamming from ever happening.  I like this solution (mod_conn) because 
in theory it simply does what I want.  I have looked at mod_throttle, 
but it has so much more than I want.  I like to keep as slim of a server 
process as possible.

Any help would be appreciated.
