How to read Anonymous traffic from web report when forum is login-only?


(Carlton J. Spitbottom) #1

My site is login-only and I’ve been eyeballing the Web performance report for a few weeks and this (see below) caught my eye today. Is this accounted for as spider/crawler traffic? I just want to be sure my user list is not exposed publicly (via user_avatars/show).

Mostly just looking for an indication as to whether i need to dig deeper in to the logs to pull more information.

Thanks a bunch in advance!

probably nothing to worry about, people logged out on phone and then tried to submit via site or something …you can always just look at NGINX logs direct to get a proper picture.

Well, - means they visited the homepage
- (POST) means they’re worthless spam robots.
static/show means the /login page was rendered.
session/create means that someone logged in.
user_avatars/show probably means that someone linked their avatar offsite.

I think this actually is strong evidence of nothing being wrong.
