It must be the hardware capacity.
The 170 we're using is: 
CPW Batch: 114 - Inter: 23
Memory: 128 MB
So it was probably the 4000 to 5000 hits in that 60 to 90 minute window that
brought it to its knees.
Thanks everyone... I hope to move to a V5Rx machine this year using Apache.

When we started in 2001, we were running a
similar system.  It only took a couple of months (with relatively little
traffic) to figure out that this entry level machine couldn't handle
more than a few simultaneous requests.  The system would quickly just
come to a halt, and page delivery time became completely unacceptable.

Since then, we have been running a dedicated 270 with 1100 CPW and no
interactive processor.  I don't have any real numbers for you, but we
run between 50,000 and 100,000 hits per day, usually with no real
