Apache Web Server Crashes on High Load

Posted by David  •  Aug 24th, 2014 10:31:54 pm - Subscribe | Mood: good | Music: No Music

Need to send traffic to your Apache Web Server, in hopes that you will not bring it down by HTTP or ICMP request? Well read on.



Well this is unique entry, recently a friend and I we're bench testing a couple servers on different nodes using the Apache Benchmark Tool. In our findings we noticed that 2 of the domains that we tested feel to they're knees due to memory issues. Now then, in no way do I condemn black hat conduct but sometimes the only way to protect your OWN servers is to use penetration testing tools to stress the server.

Now, there is a plethora of software that can do this locally on the server or for remote usage, but for this entry I will refrain from that.

I recommend that you take a look at my friends blog on how to protect yourself from an EVASION of traffic.
