Too many connections from ::1 - OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0

Hi!

I am really not sure if this the right place to post this question but since my server is FreeBSD, I'll go for it Smilie

I have a server and there are times that the load of my server would just shoot up. I'm using apache-top right now to check the cause of the problem and all I see are a lot of connections from ::1 (localhost). Here is a sample of what I'm seeing when running apache-top or when accessing /server-status. Yes ExtendedStatus is set to On.

121-0 - 0/0/ . 0.01 14201 0 0.0 0.00 21.46 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 2145
122-0 - 0/0/ . 0.00 14208 0 0.0 0.00 39.73 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1716
123-0 - 0/0/ . 0.28 14116 0 0.0 0.00 38.23 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1926
124-0 - 0/0/ . 0.06 14164 0 0.0 0.00 17.90 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1507
125-0 - 0/0/ . 0.07 14149 0 0.0 0.00 22.40 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1690
126-0 - 0/0/ . 0.28 14134 0 0.0 0.00 7.63 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1166
127-0 - 0/0/ . 1.13 13992 0 0.0 0.00 43.96 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1499
128-0 - 0/0/ . 30.16 14052 0 0.0 0.00 9.73 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0 1386
129-0 - 0/0/ . 0.09 14184 0 0.0 0.00 44.47 ::1 xxx.xxxx.xxxx OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0

I've tried searching in the net for answers regarding my problem. Some says it's just normal to have this kind of lines but I think it's the cause of the high cpu usage in my server. Anyone out there who have any ideas or suggestions regarding my problem? http://www.apache.com/forums/Smileys/default/huh.gif I really really need your help guys about this issue. http://www.apache.com/forums/Smileys/default/cry.gif

My OS is FreeBSD 6.2. Apache version is 2.2. Please help http://www.apache.com/forums/Smileys/default/cry.gif

Thanks in advance.

NAME
iodbctest, iodbctestw - iODBC Demonstration programs SYNOPSIS
iodbctest ["DSN=xxxx[;UID=xxxx][;PWD=xxxx][;OPT=value]"] iodbctestw ["DSN=xxxx[;UID=xxxx][;PWD=xxxx][;OPT=value]"] DESCRIPTION
The iodbctest program and iodbtestw programs are simple ODBC sample programs, showing the strength of the ODBC API to connect to any ODBC enabled database, issue SQL commands and retrieve the query results. The iodbctest program uses the standard ODBC API calls to connect using any DSN, but retrieves all results in ASCII mode. The iodbctestw program uses the ODBC Unicode API calls to connect using any DSN, and retrieves all results in Unicode mode. OPTIONS
The iodbctest program uses the SQLDriverConnect function to make a connection using any available ODBC compliant driver. This allows the user to override any ODBC connect attribute in the DSN string. Connect strings should start with either a DSN=xxx or a DRIVER=xxxx attribute optionally followed by other DSN attributes separated by a semicolon e.g: DSN=ora9;UID=scott;PWD=tiger;DATABASE=ora9u Any attributes required for a proper connection that are not entered in the DSN connect string, must be present in the odbc.ini file. If the connect string is passed as an argument to the iodbctest program, the string should be quoted as most shells use the semicolon as their command separator. If the connect string is entered on the interactive prompt, no quotes should be used. After a successfull connection has been established, the user is prompted for a SQL command to be send to the database. A SQL command can- not span multiple lines. If the SQL command returns one or more result sets, each result set is fetched using character buffers and displayed in a table. Additionally, the iodbctest program understands a few special commands: qualifiers Show a list of qualifiers using the SQLTables catalog call. owners Show a list of owners using the SQLTables catalog call. tables Show a list of tables using the SQLTables catalog call. types Show a list of tables types using the SQLTables catalog call. datatypes Show a list of data types using the SQLGetTypeInfo catalog call. reconnect Perform a disconnect/reconnect with the information saved during the first SQLDriverConnect. quit (or exit) Exit the program and return to the shell. EXAMPLES
Start the iodbctest program and get a list of DSNs before making a connection: $ iodbctest OpenLink ODBC Demonstration program This program shows an interactive SQL processor Enter ODBC connect string (? shows list): ?
