2015-03-27 Overly interested Amazon EC2 nodes 5 years ago
On Camp Wireless and The Virtual Bookcase I see the following pattern in the access logs:2620:108:700f::36bc:aade - - [27/Mar/2015:13:27:11 +0100] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 302 298 "-" "curl/7.36.0" 2406:da00:ff00::36e2:d963 - - [27/Mar/2015:13:27:38 +0100] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 302 298 "-" "curl/7.36.0"Constant requests, 2 or 3 per minute from Amazon EC2 IPv6 addresses just requesting the / using curl. Over the day I now see 1334 unique addresses with at most 5 requests from one url. The same pattern as described in Stange stream of HTTP GET requests in apache logs, from amazon ec2 instances - Server Fault with no real answer to the why. It's not a problematic amount of traffic, I'd just like to understand what is happenning!
