My webserver at home, running 6.2-release with Apache 2.2, has been running now for some 298 days uninterrupted. However in the past couple days I have seen a lot of
- [02/Aug/2010:10:55:42 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 710 "-" "-"
In my /var/log/httpd-access.log. The IP address that is listed at the start of the line is my own IP address, so it seems that the request starts on my home network. I see these lines every 5 minutes in the log.
I'm not sure how to interpret these lines. There is no system information in the line to help me deduce what kind of system is doing this (there are multiple systems on my home network) - is it the local system (if so why is it originating from the IP address and not the local address)?
