It usually means someone (on a fast or local network) is doing a
portscan or a similar activity on the machine. In itself, it's nothing
bad, but it depends on your opinion about portscans.
But it can also mean that a often-used service on the machine (like http
or a database server) is down and you're getting a lot of failed
connection requests from clients.
