SYNFLOOD is disabled by default. If you are not receiving any sort of attack, there is no need to enable it. If you are expecting an attack, enable it and set the rules a bit strict, like
SYNFLOOD_RATE = "5/s"
SYNFLOOD_BURST = "3"
i.e. if 5 connections are received from an IP/sec for 3 times, block it. Make sure don't keep it too strict if you are not receiving an attack else it will generate false positives and will block legit connections.
