When we look at the activity data for our site, we are seeing a high number of connection attempts from a crawler called "gsa-crawler-not-inktomi". What is the reason for this and why might the number of connections be higher one day over another?
If you have Site Search enabled on your site, the GSA crawler should continuously crawl your site searching for updates. If for some reason the crawler task gets delayed, you may see a sudden increase in connection attempts as it catches up. Mainly, you will want to ensure that the connection attempts do not continue at a high rate and return to normal.
