|Who is this?|
Took a lot of bandwidth

phoenix.formysite.com and 188.8.131.52
These two consumed a lot of my bandwidth on my site. I don't know how to trace or track them. CAn anyone offers some clues as to who and why they are hitting my site?

looks like it traces back to an ISP in Oklahoma. Prolly a homespun spider that pulled you site down. Do you have a user agent for this guy?

What's a user agent?

For example: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130" is the User Agent for my Mozilla browser.
Legitimate spiders usually have a recognizable UA. Google's spider is "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"
Nosy or homemade spiders often have no UA at all, or a phony one. Analyzing the UA is the first step to figuring out who your mysterious visitor was.
