Re: Here we go again

What can you do? I would say "not much"-

Assuming you truly cannot separate out the "legitimate" requests-
Your choices are left to these:

Bleed off all traffic above the POP's allowed levels-
Increase capacity-
Employ a distributed caching system-

That's about it as far as I can see.
