Possible wrong counter of pageviews

I just logged in to our Admin Dashboard, and I found this:

I’m talking about the peak on 9th February
However, neither in Cloudflare and Google Analytics, there is such peak in pageviews

What can have caused that (wrong) peak in Anonymous Users Pageviews?

You will need to check your haproxy logs. Also check the report for web crawler agents.

Almost certainly a rogue crawler or bot hitting you.


I just found the culprit…
In nginx access logs, after making a cat dump and waiting for similarities, I literally found a large block of thousands of the same request from the same IP which returned error code 429

I have now blacklisted that IP, so I hope it won’t happen again…
