« Unusual Behaviour

The site was receiving a vastly-greater-than-normal number of requests, aimed at the SFXB forum.
That was leading to elevated CPU usage on the server, causing the site to run slowly.

The SFXB forum has a database connection limit of 30 simultaneous sessions, which this activity was saturating.
As such, the forum was only accessible intermittently.

These requests originated from a vast range of IPs originating mostly in Virginia and also in California, all belonging to amazon data services and were all from the same unusual user agent, which has now been blocked.
