well, which kind of traffic are you referring to?  You had both robots and 
attempted-IIS attacks in there.  The robot traffic is benign (and, in fact, 
some would argue actually _useful_).  The IIS attacks however? well, there 
are modules and scripts that can try to filter it out (look through the 
mailing list archives for either "iis" or "code red" or "nimda").  Rest 
assured, none of these attacks are worth a darn, against an apache 
server...they're just a nuisance.
