    I noticed this earlier on today, it looks like some lamer sending a **** load of HTTP requests causing the mysql max connections limit to be exceeded.

    I have just put a redirect hack in the code for that IP address so all their forum requests now go here: http://www.linuxforums.org/lamer.html

    yeah, looks like same arsehole but a different IP address.

    It looks like a flood of HTTP requests actually get sent and are recorded in the http logs, but there is some sort of connectivity problem which leaves the apache child process waiting to write data out but it cannot hence the child processes linger until network socket timeout.

    If the worst comes to the worst I'll block the whole subnet.
