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.
