Reddit’s blog on a recent DDoS attack.

"At peak the attack was resulting in 400,000 requests per second at our CDN layer; 2200% over our previous record peak of 18,000 requests per second.

Even when serving 400k requests a second, a large amount of the attack wasn’t getting responded to at all due to various layers of congestion. This suggests that the attacker’s capability was higher than what we were even capable of monitoring."
