Unexplainable spike in page views

We had a huge unexplainable spike in page views on 10/22. We also have Google Analytics wired to our community and it’s not showing the spike.

Is this some sort of bug or known issue? If it’s real is there a way to track down which specific topic/content was the focus of the spike?


If you are on our hosting you can mail support to drill into that, but looking at the date it might be too far back for us to look it up – we tend not to retain logs too long for a bunch of reasons (privacy, security, etc).

Historically these kinds of blips tend to be badly behaved bots, or a client / user doing something weird.
