Unless targeted, all attacks will start from an ip. There are endless combinations on domains. It's a data market; someone will be scanning subdomains for open ports and then sell that list on to someone that is interested in http/MySQL/sql/sip an so on. The http guys will do a reverse ip scan to find domains / subdomains. The sip/VoIP guys will try many tools, sipvicious being the most used, probably. One once in, the data will then "probably" be sold again to the real nasty guys. As Eric said, assume that they know everything before even turning your switch on. A high profile colo, will have several subnets, it wouldn't take long to scan every ip they host for services that are open.
Back to the question in hand though, I don't think this is a dos-I'd imagine if it was, his server would be struggling too (and his access)-not just fs.
