Slight outage

When I first checked this morning the site wasn’t responding. According to the logs I got hammered last night from avantgo (2 requests a second?). (So a couple hundred requests over a couple minutes?) Different IP addresses, all in the avantgo netblock. I guess I had a link from a popular page among AvantGo users…. Anyway, a simple restart (of httpd and mysql) got things going. That was weird.
