I have tried with 3 different droplets with different linux distros installed.
it seems like there’s some sort of “10req/s limit” set on its public network.
when I run apachebench or any other tools to stress test the new server, I get exactly 9~10 req/s.
it doesn’t seem to be a cpu-bound or ram-bound issue since during the test, cpu utilization is kept below 1.0%
If i run the stress test in localhost, i get something like 8000req/s. hitting maximum cpu of 85~95%
here’s a droplet with its current vanilla nginx settings. can you guys take a look?
Is there some sort of anti-ddos limit or per-ip request limit implemented? i’ve looked if there’s any iptables rule or firewall(ufw) rule set on the droplet, but there weren’t any.
i’ve tested the nginx server on port 80, 8080,21, 3389 and other ports, and same results. apache gave me same results. testing from a different remote location gave me that 10req/s limit. seems to be a server-network side issue.
