I run a pretty good-sized website that gets between 80-120,000 unique
visits per month. This morning, the site suddently went down because
there were more than 200 connections to the database (shared hosting

My suspicion is that we have a couple of spammers that are trying to
hit the contact form. I have a couple of IP addresses that have a low
number of visits, but have used a ton of bandwidth. Any way for me to
figure out who the culprit is?
