Limiting Abusive Clients
We have a few clients who abuse our network, and we usually see large network spikes that end up crashing our servers.
How can we proactively prevent these abusive clients from being able to spike the network with up to 800mbit connections?
We have all the limits set in SolusVM to limit each client to 15mbit, but these limits do not seem to prove helpful.
Any help would be appreciated.
Is all that traffic from visitors or are they running a script of some sort. What kinds of applications do they host from their site?
Traffic is from scripts I'm assuming. These are VPS' not websites, just for clarification.

There is software out there that will do that for you, just have to find one that meets your needs, but they do exist.
Care to drop any names?
