Problem: a VPS (Virtual private server) was attacked. All available bandwidth used up; which caused congestion. All servers within our rack at 1-Net affected.

What was done: Shutdown VPS; restarted VPS when network recovers; installed monitoring script within the VPS to check for rogue processes. kill the rogue processes when found.

Short term measure implemented: Stricter bandwidth limiting on all ports; and linux shaping used on VPS.

Long term solution: Packet shaper purchased on 8 May 06. Will update when packet shaping is fully implemented.
