A collegue of mine DoSsed with Jmeter.

It was only pulling the index.php and it seemed to hold up with a 100 concurrent connections. Then after awhile Wordpress seemed to lose contact with the mysql database and my site didn’t respond for more than 200 seconds. :(

It came back pretty quickly after he stopped the test. I was told there was only one error, though I can’t see anything odd in the logs.

I am probably going to move over to Dreamhost in the near future as the machine is quite badly specced and on a home connection.


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
