I'm trying to figure out why this keeps happening.
We have one Ubuntu Server in front of our Web stack that receives a good 100s of requests per second.
Sometimes, I wont be able to access any site (after going to it a lot).
Doing something like
ssh -vv host hangs in
debug1: Connecting to host [188.8.131.52] port 22. for a good couple of minutes until it finally comes through, then I am "unbanned".
The thing is, there's no firewall throttling how many requests this server can handle. I don't understand what could be causing the issue.
Anyone have any ideas?
