Hi you all
After posting to the General help forum https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=416261 I think this one is more appropriate.
I have a lot of requests with 206 status flooding my server. I'm speaking requests similar to this one
X.XXX.XX.XXX - - [09/Jan/2021:15:29:26 +0100] "GET /pluginfile.php/1569996/course/overviewfiles/mscwi-moodle-picture.png HTTP/2.0" 206 69 "https://my.moodle.address/my/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/87.0.4280.88 Safari/537.36"
twenty times per second. Parts of it are to the script /file.php/* as well, but the most are to /pluginfile.php/*.
That's accumulating more and more and causing problems as described in the initial forum post.
Has anyone an idea on what could be causing this?
How to circumvent?
