I am getting the following entries in my apache access log, and my server is showing an average of 26 writes per second, on a server that is doing very little.

What is Webmin doing? I don’t get these entries in two other sites using Virtualmin non-pro.

You have status monitoring enabled for this domain in Virtualmin, and Webmin is checking the status of your website. (200 means it is answering.)

Thanks, I have disabled it and will see what happens! :grinning:
