How are you coming to the conclusion that it's a brute force attempt as opposed to something else? Are you running a firewall or such to eliminate those attempts?

Attempt of hacking, spam, or brute force login there is no any other reason for high I/O on my VPS, and i ask host to increase limit for it, they do it and for now no problems!
Wrong.. simple WordPress Pingback attack would run you out of resources fairly quickly if it was very heavy and you haven't made allowances for it.

i dont know what is it, also not using wordpress, for me this is look like some child play, becouse attack is active 4-5 minutes and stops, my host increase limit for I/O and like i said so works!no attacks for now!
You don't have to be using WordPress to be a victim of it's attack vector. They use existing WordPress sites to attack your site.
