I don’t think this is what is supposed to happen, been using Cloudflare for a few months now and lately my server gets overloaded running out of RAM becoming non-responsive daily. Every time it happens it’s getting flooded with requests from Cloudflare IP addresses for what I assume is caching. Hundreds of requests from Cloudflare IP addresses in seconds: “Python/3.6 aiohttp/3.6.2”
I’ve spent time analyzing the log files and can’t see anything else causing this overload. The website is very big, well over ten thousands posts. Is Cloudflare trying to cache everything at once and bringing down my server when it does?
Any insight or ideas on how to mitigate this?
