I am trying to simulate a DOS attack on a server at lab. For that I configured the pipe to be 10 Mbps and use simple hping3 for TCP SYN attack. The target gets the volume but since it has high resources, my experiment can only add up +25% spike on cpu. My question is:
My pipe is only 10 mbps (cannot increase that for real reason). So without expanding that could there be other amplification ways to exhaust the target server? I tried synflood at metasploit too but see same result. Again this is on lab for experimental purpose and I can’t increase the BW pipe.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
