How to Stop/Block severe Bot Attacks for a WordPress website hosted on Nginx

We recently faced persistent downtime issues, with disruptions lasting up to 45 minutes. Upon investigation, the root cause was identified as multiple bot attacks, originating from various IPs and non-existent URLs. The website is a WordPress site. Server in Nginx. After implementing Cloudflare also we are getting 502. enter image description here Here are some of the access logs: 47.128.40.75 - - [26/Jan/2024:16:25:43 +0000] "GET /search/outtakes%27a=0/page/2/page/2/page/98/page/99/page/100/page/187/page/202/page/201/page/202/ HTTP/1.1" 499 0 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile Safari/537.36 (compatible; Bytespider; spider-feedback@bytedance.com)" 47.128.117.111 - - [26/Jan/2024:16:25:50 +0000] "GET /search/outtakes%27a=0/page/2/page/2/page/113/page/186/page/187/page/186/page/192/page/193/page/192/ HTTP/1.1" 499 0 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile Safari/537.36 (compatible; Bytespider; spider-feedback@bytedance.com)" Here are some steps we took care of: Update in robots.txt.
