    Looks like a massive GET attack, or a traffic spike. Are all the IP addresses the same, or different?

    I'm not sure that I really see anything strange about the status report? Is your website not working?

    Just do service httpd restart.

    Then do service httpd configtest, or is it config-test??

    Kill Apache, and get to Nullrouting. It's either, an attack or a website that just got something similiar to a slashdot effect.

    A popular site (like slashdot) linked to one of his accounts. Thousands of users went to the website, thus slowing down the server due to massive amounts of traffic. It's referred to as the slashdot effect.
