Slashdot Cache

This utility scours your apache web logs, looking for sites that seem to be sending a lot of traffic in your direction. The process then makes a request for the pages and makes a static copy of the page. Hooks can then be made into Apache to redirect users to this new static version. This was built when a CSH member’s PHP web site was Slashdotted, causing the server to crash under the load.
