    Can someone please give info about the required mod_evasive settings

    I have

    DOSHashTableSize 3097
    DOSPageCount 2
    DOSSiteCount 300
    DOSPageInterval 1
    DOSSiteInterval 1
    DOSBlockingPeriod 10

    I am concerned about DOSSiteCount 300, we are hit pretty hard right now and trying to mitigate the attack

    Screenshot by Lightshot

    in readme file for DOSSiteCount says This is the threshhold for the total number of requests for any object by
    # the same client on the same listener per site interval

    what is considered an object here?

    image , href , css/js file or ?

    On our homepage we have 11 images , 1 css , 1 js file and over 118 links ( href )

    what should we set this setting at ?
