Quote from: MiY4Gi on August 09, 2011, 09:27:20 AMWhat's better for stopping bots? Should my cache duration be higher or lower? Should my trigger be higher or lower? What are the upper and lower limits of the cache duration and trigger?Can't I set my cache duration to 5min? Or is that a bad idea? Some of my bot spoofers only get blocked once every 2-5 mins, but never get banned since they never reach the trigger. Or does Robot.txt Validation ban spoofers instantly?

This feature can make your site faster because it will send the bots packing before SMF fully loads (ie page images/ icons). For example, if a bad guy hits your site FF will test it the first time. If the bad guy is blocked the mod will forgo testing and block the bad guy the remaining duration of the cache set point. The same is true if a regular member comes to the forum. The member will not be tested again the duration of the cache set point.If you have cpanel or some other way of tracking the latest visitors, you can look at visitor ip records. Typically you like to set this to half the average duration of a bad bot visits. In most cases 20 to 30 seconds. As a minimum you will like to test a bot two times a visit. Some people prefer three to four times. Do not go less than 20 seconds.The Trigger is the number Number of violations per cache period before the visitor is blocked. If you take the cache duration and multiply it by the trigger that will give you the total hits over the cache duration. Lowering it will cause it to be more restrictive. Raising the attack trigger will make it less restrictive.Looking at your latest visitors in cpanel will assist you in determining the trigger. It is recommended to compare your setting with the default settings ie 13 hits for every 20 seconds. To make sure you do not go too low.

Quote from: MiY4Gi on August 10, 2011, 08:33:26 AMWhen you say hits, are you referring to violations or normal browsing? What settings block bots for browsing too quickly? Also, how do I automatically ban bots/IP's that are blocked more than once?
