missed it - although I see it got up to 109.

Just had a look at the logs and I cant really see anything particulary unusual.

atm theres a batch of yahoo slurp bots spidering the forum, but users were at 22 when I started to check and spread is about right mix.
[edit now down to 12]


Since I can only really check the "current" viewers doesnt really give much away im afraid.

wth!!!

Most Online Ever: 189 (June 27, 2007, 11:04:55 PM)

Missed it again though :(
Its got to be spider bots for them to all arrive at once like that.
afaik, the forums are already pretty well googled, so if its the Yahoo slurp bots catching up indexing the site or what I dunno.
But that also seems like one hell of a lot of bots to arrive all at once.

Does it only happen late at night when I'm at my slumbers?

I literally must have just gone afk when it all happened.  Will have to try be around tonight at about 11ish to see if it happens then.

This is ridiculous - theres 130 of them on now and it is Yahoo slurp bots. 
Cant believe that in some cases they are all crawling the same threads!

Seems like I'm not the only one experiencing this problem.   I did  some googling earlier and theres a heck of a lot of sites out there complaining this month about the behaviour of Yahoo Slurp bots.
I saw someone say they'd increased his bandwidth by about 13GB

Theyve gone crazy!

I could try blocking them all [seen a few sites actually resort to that], but not sure if I really want to do this just yet.

Will keep an eye on things and see if someone comes up with something in the meantime - or hopefully yahoo sort their act out.
