- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 4 answers
Recently, I have random occurence where I can't reach my server. When this occurs, about 1 ping on each 10 manage to ping back. The ping that do get through are within normal response time (about 42ms in my case).
The only information I could gather so far is my network usage graph. When those timeouts occur, my server recieves unusually HIGH traffic from the internet.
If this may help, my server is supposed to be under a 100 mbits internet connection.
Am I right to think those spikes are related to my ping's timeout? Also, do anyone have any idea of what this traffic might be? It started about a week ago, nothing has drastically changed in my infrastructure for over a year.
Thank you for your help.
