This one I banned its IP, I recall (lurking at my database and my online guests flags) that creates a lot of sessions, like a Spider, it is not a BOT, it's a crawler or spider IMO.Marcus Wendel wrote:Bot name: Omgili [Bot]

Well, I have nothing against to list all the crawlers/spiders/bots on the online list but I do consider the fact it creates about 9/10 different sessions in the same time in my test live board where I have 4 forums with 100 posts, I don't know if in a bigger forum it creates many more sessions, anyway it's too much for my point of view (also annoying to see 9/10 past guests flags all togheter when I know it is just ONE automa).Marcus Wendel wrote:So far I've not seen any problems with Omgili but thanks for the heads up, I'll keep an eye on it.
I'm not really good at the terminology of these things so I've changed the title of this thread to follow the terminology used in phpBB.

There are two possibilities:
1. When someone rolls over a Snap Shot-enabled link for the first time, Snap takes a picture of the linked-to Web page so the image can be displayed in the preview bubble. If someone links to many pages at your site, you may notice a temporary increase in automated traffic. However this is generally quite brief because Snap stores the image so it does not generally need to fetch it again. The user-agent for our snapshot-taking bot is "SnapPreviewBot".
2. Snap.com, our search engine, uses an indexing bot that may occasionally visit your Web pages. The user-agent for our indexing bot is "SnapBot/1.0".
