#1: Lots of "Reading request" status connections with no IP

Posted on 2010-10-08 14:01:02 by dennisml

Hi,
I just saw the mention of "mod_reqtimeout" on the dev mailing list and I'm
wondering if this would be a good module to deal with a problem I'm seeing.

On one of our server I see a ddos where one IP seems to create lots of new
connections to Apache which all show up as "Reading Request" and a with a
Client IP of "?".

The "timeout" directive doesn't work and I'm wondering why since apparently
it has already received the new connection (hence the entry in
server-status) yet it cannot determine the IP of the connection?

Would mod_reqtimeout be able to handle this case? What I'm basically
looking for is a way to set a timeout for any sort of connection to be
discarded by Apache if the request hasn't been completely sent in 5 seconds.

Regards,
Dennis
