    Bandwidth exhaution

    Hi follks,
    Please i'd be very grateful if any has can help with this ptoblem i'm experiencing.
    i manage a site that does online registration. All of a sudden bandwidth utilisation skyrockets. as much as 50 Gb in two days. personally i don't think our traffic is that much, so i was wondering if there are any other factors that can account for this - maybe we're been hacked or something!!!
    I've disabled all the links to the site, i.e only the index page is active, but the bandwidth keeps depleting.....
    And then if hacking is the problem- what are the ways round it?
    JC Rocks!!

    you should check your log files to see if anything is wrong

    Other than that, you could also check if webcrawlers are not scanning too much your site. You can limit their scope with a robots.txt in the root of your website (check on google for information on this)

    You could also insert caching into your application to use the Client browser cache mecanism in preventing the page from being sent again if it hasn't changed.
