Oops, I was looking at the wrong stat, the peak is only about 400 (today, it grows over time). It's not a classic login (like at a bank say), it's lighter weight

What does this even mean?

The light weight part? It's not relevant to this list, just noting that it's a less resource intensive login overall than what one might think of as a normal web login. The relevant part to this list is of course is that an authentication is done, so a password hash is performed.
