Are there a large number of destination ports? Can you see source IPs as well?

So all you really know is that you have an outage that requires a reboot. Start by checking all the log files on the server for information that might point you to the cause.

How do you know you have a DDOS attack rather than some other problem? If it is DDOS, then of course there is not just one source to block...

The NIST paper is related to algorithms for derivation of a key from a password. You only refer to "password hashing" which is not the same thing. Can you elaborate on the purpose for which you are hashing passwords?
