    A DDoS attack really needs to be mitigated above the application; the point of a DDoS is to exhaust resources so you need to use as few as possible to block it. As such, at the least, you'd want to block the attacking IPs at the server level. (You can do this in XF as well, but it may be too late to prevent significant load.) Ideally, you may need some level of DDoS protection above that.
