nicky9499 Posted December 12, 2021 Report Share Posted December 12, 2021 Hi gents, I just had an episode whereby my web host disconnected all my sites due to "excessive server requests". While this was resolved after much grief with their support staff, the core issue is not solved, and this is also not the first time such an event has happened. This time, the support agent kindly provided full logs for the 15 minutes leading up to the disconnection. https://pastebin.com/tLHyNS0j Naturally, I don't know what these mean at all but the server was indeed being hit with an alarming amount of consecutive requests. Examples: "POST /api/pireps/2Axjw96wnZOAVrlm/acars/positions HTTP/1.1" 200 41 "-" "RestSharp/126.96.36.199" "POST /api/pireps/vYJm58W54j9VmJXG/update HTTP/1.1" 200 97599 "-" "RestSharp/188.8.131.52" "POST /api/pireps/vYJm58W54j9VmJXG/acars/logs HTTP/1.1" 200 36 "-" "RestSharp/184.108.40.206" "POST /api/pireps/2Axjw96wnZOAVrlm/update HTTP/1.1" 200 107528 "-" "RestSharp/220.127.116.11" "POST /api/pireps/3Gj3MxNMYL7nP1RN/fields HTTP/1.1" 200 134 "-" "RestSharp/18.104.22.168" 2186 requests over a period of 15 minutes. Is this normal? I still have no idea what an "acceptable" rate is and there is no clarity from the host on this as well. My cPanel shows that I have plenty of resources left https://prnt.sc/22ris03 In the interim, I have doubled all refresh timings from 15 to 30 seconds in vmsacars settings. However I still don't know if this is sufficient or whether or not it will prevent another future outage. Can someone advise please? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
