The spike is still going on with a large number of visits to my login.php and index.php. If it's DoS, it's a bad one as it's not putting a dent in my server resources or bandwidth. The previous spikes were much smaller, averaging under a .5 Mbps for a couple hours, each.
I don't think it would be someone trying to brute force a password, as the phpBB site contains nothing of value.
So my question is, have others ever seen something like this? One thing I will say is that my site is about 3 months old and I'm expecting a pretty good size PR jump to certainly 6, maybe 7. But I doubt that has something to do with it.
I think the spider had some brain damage or something ;-)
Anyone heard of something similar?
I have been getting that many hits (or more) from Google each day for the past two weeks. I'm pretty regularly seeing about 60,000 page views a day from various search engines. But I also have a lot of pages so it makes plenty of sense. Based on your description, it would appear you have a lot fewer pages and it is just repeatedly hammering individual pages. Correct?
