    Angry Server load

    My sites log which has the size of 7,5 MB for just today is filled 2/3's with this:

    212.241.220.153 - - [16/Sep/2008:19:24:00 -0600] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 303 860 "-" "Lynx/2.8.5dev.7 libwww-FM/2.14 SSL-MM/1.4.1 OpenSSL/0.9.7"

    Does anybody know what/who this is?

    The browser is the text-based Lynx browser.

    You will need to do a trace on the IP address.

    Not sure why there would be so many entries in your log file. Are they over a short perios of time?

    Might you consider blocking the IP? Sounds like it might be a Denial Of Service Attack.

    Yea, it seems to point to that. I am now blocking that IP.

    Could also be a bot spidering your website.

    Bloody Poms. You'd think they'd have something better to do.
