Inktomi Spider Behavior what does this mean graywolf msg:1529290 3:02 pm on Feb 9, 2004 (gmt 0) The inktomi spider has come twice in the past 30 days and the only file it looked for was robots.txt. I don't identify it specifically in the robots file could this be why it's not looking for any other pages?

Not likely. Some bots update their robots cache regularly, regardless of their spidering schedule. andy_boyd msg:1529292 5:43 pm on Feb 16, 2004 (gmt 0)
For a while there Slurp only came in, looked at the index and robots.txt and left. But for the last week or so Slurp has been all over one of my sites, can't get enough. Strange behaviour. helenp msg:1529293 10:45 pm on Feb 16, 2004 (gmt 0)
I have the same problem, since 13/1 until today, inktomi slurp/si only spiders my robots.txt, and some days several times, one day 14 times. write twice to Inktomi, but nothing, no good anwers. helenp msg:1529294 12:31 am on Feb 17, 2004 (gmt 0)
Just noticied that gigabot also only spideres my robot.txt, My robots.txt are validated and checked and doubblechecked, the rest of spiders donīt have any problems.
