Dissecting today’s Internet traffic spikes

Dissecting today’s Internet traffic spikes: This, in many ways, is like a tornado. Our ability to predict them sucks. Our responses are crude and they are quite damaging. However, predicting these Internet traffic events isn’t even possible — there are no building weather patterns or early warning signs. Instead we are forced to focus on different techniques for stability and safety. The idea of a DoS, a DDoS or the sometimes similar signature of a sudden popularity spike doesn’t increase my heart rate anymore — it’s just another day on the job. However, I thought I’d share the four guidelines that I believe are key to my sanity in these situations [Good article… from someone who knows. I worked with Theo & Co. back in ’00-’01. They do this stuff all day every day.]
