Always online - aggressive crawling?

Hi

The Cloudflare-Alwaysonline crawler seems to excessively hit our frontpage from time to time, creating sort of a mini DDOS attack against the backend server. (400+ request within a minute)
access_log

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Can you confirm the IP address in your log is one of the CF IPs? The user agent might be spoofed.

We didn’t expose the X-Forwarded-for in our log so I only see the ip-adress of the amazon loadbalancer. :frowning:
We’ve changed the log-format so we can check the IP-adress next time it happens. We have, however, decided to turn off the “Always online” feature as a preemptive step.
