As a security analyst, the possibilities of threats I can think of are,

  • Heavy traffic in the Network
  • Heavy traffic due to DOS or DDOS attack
  • Any bruteforce attack
To face this situation,
  • I would use a load balancer to distribute the traffic (requests) to different servers. (if it is a DOS or DDOS attack)
  • If it is any kind of brute force attack I would simply block the IP address of the source.
Fill in if there are any other possibilities and mitigations.

This can be controlled by analysing and filtering the packets in scrubbing centre
