Anomalous Brain Workshop download activity
|Reported by:||jtoomim||Owned by:||ctsai|
I'm one of the two developers for Brain Workshop, a project hosted on
Sourceforge. I've been noticing that Brain Workshop occasionally has weird
download spikes from Russia. When it happens, it's always one file, always
from one country, always Russia, and usually lasts a few days and exceeds
our normal download activity by around one order of magnitude. Over the last
few months, these spikes have accounted for around half of our total
downloads. The most recent spike occurred on the source distribution for
version 4.7 (the most current is 4.8) over 4 days in the last week:
The <10/day rate is typical for old versions of our software. The most
recent version gets ~200 downloads/day.
We haven't noticed any problems as a result of these download spikes, but
they do use a considerable amount of bandwidth (around 100 GB for the last
one), so I thought you guys might want to hear about it.
