I've got a problem with our BM3.8 Ir4 server's reverse proxy. According to
the proxy cache stats the number of active connections just keeps on going
up and up and then the server eventually looses communication, it can't even
ping itself. The server is used as a reverse proxy for our internal
website's and other services and the cache using has about 300 or so
connections, i've now seen it as high as 9000. According to TCP stats the
connections are coming from all over the place, are we being attacked by a
bot net? to Any suggestions are welcome!
