Abstract

See full text

The invention prevents server overload and possible server crippling due to a flooding of connectionless datagrams caused by intentional attack or otherwise. In response to a datagram from a host for a specified port, the number of datagrams already queued to the port from the host is determined. If this number exceeds a first threshold, the datagram is discarded. In the preferred embodiment, the threshold is determined by multiplying a percentage P by the number of available queue slots remaining for the port.
