We had 1000's of repeated request so many so it was dragging the websites down. Example one site specific nitch might get 100 hits with 400 page views. This went from 400 to over 4k in 4 hours on Monday so I looked at the weekend. It started on Friday afternoon and never let up until I blocked the ip's. The website has only about 100 pages it was pulling the same content over and over and over.
