understanding netstat


Hello,

My server has been loading slowly for the last few days and I'm trying to find out why.

We did receive a DDoS attack but it was quickly resolved, since then it hasn't quite been the same.

I've run netstat -nt and I'm not sure if this means anything but hopefully someone can help me out. Is it usual to see this? There are more, **.**.**.** is the servers IP.

Code:
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44501         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44506         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44507         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44504         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44505         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44510         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44511         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44508         TIME_WAIT
tcp        0      0 **.**.**.**:8888          **.**.**.**:44509         TIME_WAIT

TIME_WAIT is a connection that has closed and is going to be purged by your system within about 30 seconds on average. In themselves they are utterly uninteresting. having too many of them can cause DDOS's though as they use up ports that new connections are unable to use.
