MASSIVE SPIKES of network traffic, and I was otherwise indisposed...
Just have to monitor the situation and see how it goes.
At some point, I guess we can look into using cloudfare... as these do appear to be genuine bandwidth type DOS type attacks as opposed to excessive number of users.
Again the hosting instance appears to have been shut down by alpharacks... so, it's not an application level thing I can deal with. Maybe I can look into using another instance to monitor the health of the main instance and automatically restart them through alpharack's API.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
