Subject [users@httpd] How to protect apache againg bench marking attack ?
Date Tue, 12 Jan 2010 09:04:16 GMT
Hello all,

I am dared to see what "ab" (apache benchmarking too) can do  against an
apache server.  I have used the following against my server to check
call handling

` ` `
ab -n 1000 -c 20 http://<site-name>/index.php?no_cache=1
` ` `


and it simply bottle neck the target apache server.  the target server
is also  over loaded with huge cpu load.  Is there any  precaution to
prevent this ?  the target  system is already  protected with
mod_security. 

Thanks
