If you lookup reverse DNS for 63.211.151.xxx, it looks like an ISP's
dialup modem pool. There's probably one or two customers of the ISP that
are simply hitting you from different dynamically-assigned IPs at
different times. So in this case, number of client IPs might not
necessarily correlate with actual "load" caused to the servers.
