I've been playing around with statistics to try and achieve this but unsuccessful so far.

the problem is wireshark crashes when I open the endpoints window due to he fact the IP list is over 2.5 million. The pcap i'm analyzing is a ddos attack against my server.

Just wondering has anyone been able to get a list of requests per IP address within a pcap before?

You should look into processing such PCAP file through tshark. Using single pass dissection, preventing out-of-memory problem, would give you a 'text-based' output which you can process further through other tools.
