    I woke up this this morning to one of my servers completely crippled, it had been down for over 6 hours, I could ping the server so I suspected a load issue, managing get access I was able to restart apache, eventually the load dropped and service was resumed.

    Similar issues happen every so often, i'm looking for ways I can prevent it in the future?

    Upon investigation, it seemed to happen when the server was doing backups.. I logged in and could see backups had started again, I could see pigz running which was using a lot of CPU... I then checked Apache logs and could see a single IP address spamming my server.. with the backups going on I don't think my server could cope, requests built up and eventually came to a stand still.

    I can tweak some settings in WHM to stop backups running when the server reaches a critical level, however, I don't understand what value it should be? The setting 'Extra CPUs for server load' says "a server with 4 physical CPUs and a value of 2 in this field will be considered “critical” in these cases once the load reaches 6"

    How does a server with 4 CPUs and a value of 2 in this field get to 6 as critical? I have a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1230 V2 in this server which apparently have 8 processors.

    So what setting should I have here?

    Finally, the apache log is very alarming.

    Probably hard to read, the thing to take away from this is the IP 188.143.xxx.xx is on there over 100 times.. I checked it out and it looks like it is from a forum spammer.

    I have blocked the IP but how can I stop this happening again from another IP... Surely there is a way to limit connections from a single IP.. or detect this sort of activity and block it?

    Should the server be able to handle this?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks :)

    There are a other options too. You can use nginx and limit the access from Ips' You can also use cloudlinux too. It is better to check the forum, it may be outdated to. That will be the reason behind this continuous spamming. You can tell your Forum admin to enable a captcha in is forms, that will prevent the boat spamming.

    Hello :)

    It's the number you enter for this option, plus the number of processors on your system. If you enter "2", it's "2+8" if you have eight processors. Thus, the "Critical Load" is considered "10".

    Thank you.
