I have recently started analysing our logs and noticed 600-700 failed login attempts per day against a windows 2016 server hosting some shared files.
I know what the cause is (another misconfigured server), however I was wondering what impact those requests would have on the server?
Would it affect performance in anyway, or is it just a minor annoyance when I am reading logs?
Obviously it is going to be fixed, but I don't know how urgent I need to make it sound. Not sure if I should be treating it as a minor DoS-type issue or just sticking it on someones todo list.
(Assuming a high-speed network, 4 CPU, 8GB RAM)
