Spike in Cloudflare Usage - Insights Needed!

Hello Community,

I’m in need of some assistance. I run a blog with an average of about 600 visitors per day. I’ve recently started receiving notifications from Cloudflare saying that I’ve reached 100% of my daily request limit for Cloudflare Workers and/or Pages Functions. These are, as far as I understand, serverless computing services that allow JavaScript to run at the edge of the network.

However, I don’t recall explicitly using these services for my website. The only recent change I’ve implemented is the installation of an SSL/TLS certificate via Cloudflare for enhancing my site’s security. To my understanding, this shouldn’t directly impact the usage of Workers or Pages Functions.

This situation has left me puzzled. Is it possible that certain elements of my website, such as applications, plugins, or themes, could be utilizing these services without my direct knowledge?

I’m reaching out to see if anyone has experienced a similar situation or could provide some insights on what could be causing this surge in usage. Any advice on how to address this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

If you head over to Workers and Pages (https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/workers-and-pages), you should be able to see any Workers / Pages Projects you have created, and how many requests they have used.

That wouldn’t

If you are using Cloudflare Pages, perhaps you are using a framework that has SSR (server-side rendering) built-in/uses functions on its own.
