Site has lots of hits from the hosting server itself

Hi there.

I have 7 sites running on a VPS with the above cPanel VPS installed. I am unsure if this even cPanel related but figured it was worth a shot. Lets say the host name for this machine is ""

One of these sites tends to gobble up a pretty big amount of memory. It is a rather old Drupal (5.3) system.

I have found through webalizer that this site's highest ranked host for visits is the server itself ( To the tune of 5% of total hits. No other site on the server has hits from the server itself.

Anyone care to guess why the site would be recording hits from it's own host?
