DOS attack !
« on: February 20, 2012, 10:37:17 am »
Chaps - I am going to cross post this to veralert too but one of you has misconfigured your vera and is sending an alert every 2 seconds. I've had to blacklist the IP as this caused a resource exhaustion at the app engine server (as it's a free app, I only have the free limits on the service unless people want to donate!).

Soooo.... you will have missed any alerts yesterday due to this.

I really don't want to have to force people to register etc to use the service but I may have to for people who want to use it and have a support arrangement.

Hi,

Wrong setting on a relay card.
i didn't receive the alert, so i didn't realize the mistake.

Sorry for all the users who didn't receive there alert.
Sorry for Richard, for the trouble/waste time.

Hey no worries. Glad we managed to get to the bottom of it and thanks for owning up...

Feel free to buy me a beer / coffee though :-)

I'll enable the IP address again shortly.

Richard.
