Getting hit hard...

Last night i discovered a single client hitting my server thousands of times per second. Even after I block this guy at the firewall the requests keep coming. I’ve contacted his provider in the Netherlands but so far the packets keep coming.

Is anyone else seeing high rates from this IP address?

There are quite many so-called “clients” which do that. I experience it on all of my servers, but not equally. I started a thread about some which did the same to my often heavily attacked server. After that post I did not update the list, but I will have to make it soon, as again I experience server unavailability:

There are several more threads about these problems.
