Far bigger problem! Every tuesday a search engine hits our server... HARD. today they dinged us for a huge hunk of bandwidth.
In the past 24 hours, your rate of bandwidth usage exceeded 131781. If this rate continues for the remainder of the month, your billable rate would be about 131781 bytes per second, which is equivalent to a monthly rate of approximately 318 gigabytes per month.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
there is no way in a rat's a** we can pay that kind of bill. I also found out that everyday since Sept 10 (does not appear to be any weekends) we are getting clobbered for requests - thousands in a fairly short period of time - obviously a high speed connection. Very intermittent and not that easy to spot on a daily basis.
IF this may apply to you, please either ease up or risk being removed. We simply can't afford whomever is doing this. BIG job to track down as the log files are huge and I"m not very proficient, but will be trying.
We are tickling our monthly limit now and really can't afford the next level.
Thanks for making me go in and do some serious digging.
