Cloudflare-SSLDetector Is overloading my servers


Every once in a while we get massive requests to all our subdomains at the same second from Cloudflare-SSLDetector.

We need a way to slow down this, or disable it.

It would be great if Cloudflare could throttle these requests. We have a lot of subdomains (around 1500) and we usually have 20 requests per second, but when Cloudflare starts scanning we go to 1500 rps in just a second.

So now out DoS protection tool becomes our DoS attacker!

By the way, we checked and all the requests come from Cloudflare, but from different Cloudflare IPs

You can disable this in the Cloudflare Dashboard at the SSL/TLS section and then disabling SSL/TLS Recommender.

More info about the recommender can be found on
