I have a file thats being requested so many times it's slowing down everything else.
Edit - this question has escalated to here --> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Internet/Web_Development/Q_24293692.html
I set a disallow to the file in htaccess file which seemed to do the trick for about half an hour. Now it's appearing again and i've now deleted the offending file.
What I also want to know is, why is the site full path bolted on to the end?
I've traced a few of the IP's doing this and most have several hops all around the world.
i've substituted actual site name with www.mysite.com
