    It's incredible. The load never goes above 0.03

    All my Invision board pages take 0.08 seconds or less to generate, and all my vB3 pages take 0.4 or less. Consistently, too. No random spikes at peak times like on our previous server.

    I'm itching to start hosting some sites on us.

    I see so it's not to do with the actual server. Thanks for that information as I thought it was .

    Either way I'm hosted at Rackshack who have massive connections so I don't think this amateur could've done enough damage.

    But everybody here is laughing because their servers can obviously withstand what this dude is doing with little or no problems.

    In three words: we're mocking him.
    Yeah I know. I thought some people thought that the DDOS attack was meant to overload the CPU.

    [notices that a link to my forum is nowhere to be found o_O]

    http://www.xflarenetwork.com/forum Might aswell post a link to it so I can get a nice online record, if this happens again

    It would be so good if they'd attacked it, try to ping www.whitehouse.gov
    For some reason, I am getting the feeling that you guys don't understand the theory behind DDOS attacks. I could explain it or I could point you to a site that explains it better than I can. I think I will do both. In a DDOS attack, mutiple computers send data (obviously useless) to a computer hoping to overload the computer's internet connection. If your server's internet connection is at 100% load, you are effectively forced offline. I have never heard of a computer processor being overloaded by a DDOS attack to the point where it can't process anymore but I suppose it could happen (although not likely). Anyway regardless of what you run, if the internet connection fills up, you are offline. The person who is attacking message boards is obviously an amateur since he doesn't know how to blast a site correctly. If he knew what he was doing, he wouldn't be blasting exampledomain.com/forum, he would be blasting exampledomain.com with enough traffic to fill up the connection. Anyway, here is the link to an article that explains this better than I can:

    http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm

    Edit: I forgot to mention. Since vBulletin.com is hosted by a company, the jerk attacking it would have to send at least 10GB of Data to push it offline considering how the company would have at least a 10GB connection.

    A nice little bot that tries to shut down your site by posting Chit-chat messages. That would be the small forum-owner's dream come true.
    Heck I wouldn't mind that although recently I've been getting hunreds of posts a day in Off Topic. It would be funny having some bots posting around
