66.249.64.117 – You Got A Visit From GoogleBot

Was troubleshooting some heavy usage on the web site this morning and noticed huge number of connections from 66.249.64.117 in the  Apache HTTP access.log. If you also see connections from 66.249.64.117 in your HTTP log you simply had a visit from the GoogleBot. It uses “Googlebot/2.1” as its User Agent string.

If you’d like to get more details about the connections from 66.249.64.117 and have the privilege of shell access to your Apache HTTP log, just run the following command

cat access.log| grep 66.249.64.117

and you’ll see all connections, the access times and User Agent data, etc.
