[tlug] httpd strangeness

Hi everyone,

The last couple of days I've noticed some strange behavior with my server at home- extreme network latency all of a sudden. Ping time to google is usually 208 ms but during this phenomena it shoots up to over 2000 ms. To troubleshoot the latest event, I did a the following (edited for brevity):

[ scott]# netstat -tuapn
Active Internet connections (servers and established)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address               Foreign Address             State       PID/Program name
tcp        0  81200           ESTABLISHED 24628/httpd
tcp        0  70000           ESTABLISHED 16617/httpd
tcp        0  79800           ESTABLISHED 16616/httpd

[ sbin]# tcpdump -i ppp0
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
listening on ppp0, link-type LINUX_SLL (Linux cooked), capture size 96 bytes
23:40:58.909627 IP > . ack 805046405 win 64400 <nop,nop,timestamp 662900488 523132041>
23:40:58.909678 IP > . 61601:63001(1400) ack 0 win 1402 <nop,nop,timestamp 523134165 662900488>

So it looks like apache is taking a hit- dumping a lot of data to this guest from bbexcite. The same thing happened yesterday but it was to a host on OCN I checked webalizer and these hosts had shown up:

Top 10 of 135 Total Sites By KBytes
# Hits Files KBytes Visits Hostname
1 4 0.19% 4 0.25% 194038 17.44% 0 0.00%
2 3 0.14% 3 0.18% 159350 14.32% 0 0.00%
3 3 0.14% 3 0.18% 159350 14.32% 0 0.00%

So it looks like they are not "visiting", but they are downloading a lot of data. I am wondering if I should be concerned? I'm already pretty paranoid after getting my system broken into last year. If it isn't anything to worry about, I wonder if I can take off my tin hat and just throttle this kind of stuff to prevent my network from becoming so slow.

Anybody else experiencing anything like this lately?

Thanks in advance,
Scott VanDusen
