    Regular traffic I can handle easily, it's the DoS attacks that cause disruption - as an example, I need to reboot the router, within 1 minute 22 seconds, there were 6,511 connections to the router. That's not normal traffic

    @haitch we have 1000 connections to the forum alone... So I guess 6000 connections in total for all wallets and sites is totally possible these days.

    @daWallet It's normally about half that, but with the price hikes, and the rate new users and miners are coming on board, I guess it's possible.

    Edit: currently just over 25,000 connections.

    Edit 2: Now at 38,000 connections, these are just some of the firewall log messages for the last 5 minutes:
