I'm noticing traffic decreasing recently so I brought the ddos settings down a bit - hopefully we'll be ok.
Bro, when I received the notification that you replied, and I clicked open, the page opened with the same 502 error page I have to refresh 3 times to get to this page now, so the issue is not completely solved

The last few days [only occasionally] I have had the cloud flair, unable to connect screen.
What I have notice is that, in a normal day we have around 500/600 visitors/bots and on the days it's crashed there were over 1000

Happened to me just a few hours ago.

Yeah .. let's see how it goes

I'll be okay regardless. It's pretty much a holiday here in my house - Le Mans 24 Hour is up this weekend. I usually don't mention this sort of stuff, 'cause I'll then end up making 20 posts about it.

But, if you get the MotorTrend channel, or have the app/streaming service, you can stream it entirely - with commercials.

Typically a DDoS attack has million's of requests.
As KGIII said, it might have something to do with spam bots instead...different disease with similar symptoms I guess! *shrugs*

A DDoS may also attack things that don't appear as traffic, such as API endpoints, or even syndication feeds.

Down again this morning, I can't give any numbers as I was not on when it went down
out of interest, Pro-Boards was also down [I don't know if they use the same server farm]

I think there are a lot of attacks going on today. Might have something to do with the Russia/Ukraine conflict. I was getting 500 errors from a lot of websites I visited this morning, including Linux.org, crunchyroll and several others.
Everything seems to be OK ATM. Websites seem to be responding normally now.
