im not sure what this is referring to; but nothing is being "collected" - some rogue requests are being filtered and some IPs are being blocked - that was hoped to be temporary; but if the noise does not cease, then the policy may need to be changed

It should be noted the the SYN flood protection pays attention to half connections in which the TCP 3 way handshake is never completed (SYN flood attack). Only very rarely would if catch an actual connection attempt. Also the Logging was primarly for Debugging the protection (making sure it wasn't catching actual connections) and would be trivial to turn off.

It also should be noted that that protection is not even active as the threat has passed.
