Overwhelmed by transaction load, Solana crashes for 7 hours

On Saturday, the Solana network was overwhelmed by a sheer number of inbound transactions. These 4 million transaction requests per second crashed the network and the outage continued for seven hours. Finally, late-night at that day one of the validators shares restart instructions with the operators to get the network online. A similar situation happened in September 2021, when Solana crashed for 17 hours.
