|Altavista Denial of Service|
altavista is currently overwhelming my servers
with their server ...
i am hosting huge realaudio/video multimedia files
and altavista is downloading them over and over
since yesterday ...
not only is altavista requesting it over and over
again - they have basically caused 30% of my bandwith ...
- we are talking here about several GIGABYTES.
the requests come from
is there anything i can do to stop that?
i complained already several month ago -
but now they are doing it again ...
is there anything i can do?
Please sticky me asap with your crawler log samples and IPs. I think it is a spider trap not a DOS as this is coming from the Multimedia Crawler.
thank you for the prompt reply -
you got mail.
i must admit that i am a little bit concerned
about "spiders on the loose" when it reaches
a point that the bandwith consumption causes
financial hosting problems ...
