This is really getting OT but anyway … nusenu is correct and 100% in the right with his lovably passiv aggressiv comment.

My fault, I fucked it up to set the family on the domflow server correct. With this virus thingy going on lots of lots of other stress I forgot but I am happy to know that we have a person who cares about the network.

Right now we have implemented the DDOS protection Teor gave me and as far as I can tell it works. No more daily DDOS for me.

I will fix the family with the next planed downtime, turns out half of a terabyte ram is not enough, ram was ordered, as soon as it arrives we will install it and reboot all servers with the new family config.

sorry about all the troubles.
