comment RHEL5 do not see sas tape library
1) You need to provide the output from dmesg, specifically check if the tape drive was detected at all. 2) with this being RHEL5 you may well need to install the Firmware for the tape drive into check the vendor website for linux specific firmware/drivers and install accordingly.

your question is a little ambiguous, are you wanting the actual packet data or a summary of the number of bytes sent/received?

comment Spoofing Packets?
@AsadMoeen your attacker may be in control of or have access to a BotNet, or simply may be using readily available technologies (chef,puppet, etc) to spining up small instances to carry out the attack, and immediately shut them down post completion, spin more get new ip's rinse and repeat for desired effect, there are numerable ways to achieve this sort of attack

comment Spoofing Packets?
@AsadMoeen I was more referring to the "spoofing" test, instead you could quickly spin up multiple attackers vm's and run your attacks, evaluate the results etc.

curl -X http://site.com/uri/to/purge ... whilst having varnishlog open I suggest you reading the documentation for varnish.

Assuming you have run a reload to rebuild the vcl: run varnishlog @ the varnish server, and run through a purge request manually using curl from an approved client box, see what it comes back with.

You're going to need to provide more information, what version of varnish are you running, and have you created the required ACL to allow content purging in the varnish VCL?

comment Spoofing Packets?
@AsadMoeen a scripting startup of multiple cloud instances may well be the way to go in this case, just ensure you have full legal sign off between yourself and your provider for carrying out the test to avoid any backlash.
