Subject [users@httpd] How to fight a client causing DoS ?
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2005 18:55:21 GMT
The DoS was caused because a client tried to use one of the popular
spiders to download the whole site.

I've attached a clip from the error log & the access log (CR/LF terminated).

As you can see the DoS client can be identified by his IP address.
The same behavior continued for ~8 hours :(

What can be done to stop the "attack" ?

Thank you.

Do u GNU ?
