Hi,

Can anyone tell me if this IP belongs to google bot or any other search engine bots?

The ip is: 69.31.103.211

I was getting lots of connections from this ip and that was slowing down my site, so I blocked, but confused if I blocked any search engine bot?

Regards

It might be more advantegous to your inquiry, if you provided the User Agent as well?


69.31.103.0 - 69.31.103.255

Here's some more nLayer ranges you may wish to add (there may even be more in 2010; these numbers from 2007):
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^69\.22\.(12[8-9]|1[3-8][0-9]|19[01])\. [OR]
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^69\.31\. [OR]
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^69\.50\.(1[6-8][0-9]|19[01])\. [OR]

Thankx wilderness

I wanted to know if that IP belongs to any search engine bot? I do not have user agent with me. I will provide when i get that from my hosting company.

Can you please tell me if this ip is of any search engine bot? like google or yahoo? I blocked it but I am worried that if i blocked any search bot accidentally?

1.) I'm unfamiliar with that IP belonging to any known bot, and definitely not one of the majors. Regardless, if any 'visitor' -- bot or body -- is hitting hard enough to slow down a site, it's blockworthy.

That said, if you don't have access to your logs, the IP may not have caused the slow-down...

2.) How did you confirm that IP was the culprit?

3.) You can do your own WHOIS lookups through major registrars and countless sites like dnsstuff.com, domaintools.com, etc.

I look at fast rips through site as blockworthy... at the same time I look at the IP for more info to determine if it is a bot or a HUMAN with a site ripper... which means I also look at the UA to see if that has a bearing on the problem. Not all rapid requests are bots. Some are a$$holes copying local your content without reading it, though they think they might at some future time. Meanwhile, your bandwidth has been hit. Can't kill all those lookie loos...

None that I'm aware of.

nLayer is backbone service provider.

I can't be 100% sure, but in my opinion it's not google. my 30 second research led me to a rather scrapy looking "business"
