    Hi, every 20 to 30 minutes, my server is getting about 400 to 500 connections per minute. In the last 2 weeks, 24 hours.

    Using "tcpdump", I have detected that incoming connections come from CloudFlare IPs, to an Apache website.

    But I can not detect the target site (about 60 cPanel accounts). Using WHM, Apache Status, I can not see anything to identify the destination.

    This is not causing problems, no memory spikes, or CPU. But I do not feel comfortable not knowing why. Any idea how I can detect it more accurately?

    thank you

    Hello @Rogerio,

    Have you checked the Apache domain access logs to see if you notice any entries indicating a large number of requests? The domain access logs are located in the /var/log/apache2/domlogs/ directory.

    Thank you.
