comment What do you do when a command floods your terminal with too much output?
I should have added killing my ssh session or switching to another one as one of my sub-optimal solutions. I do run screen but I run it locally, so switching to another shell means logging in again, that's one of the annoyances I'm trying to avoid. These are good suggestions, though. Thanks.

tcp_max_orphans is interesting but it seems like it's not working. When I try to measure orphaned sockets during my test I see 11,651 of them while tcp_max_orphans is 8,092. # netstat --inet -p | grep "localhost:www" | sed -e 's/ \+/ /g' | cut -d' ' -f 1-4,6-7 | sort | uniq -c 11651 tcp 0 0 localhost:www TIME_WAIT -
