    Hi

    I have a client who is downloading a remote webpage every 20 seconds from its main page, using php's cURL.
    Although remote webpage weights only 11 KiB, they are reloading it about 30-40k times a day, and that's a lot of traffic.

    Problem is that this traffic is not accounted in ISPConfig, I can only see a 5 bytes POST entry for each remote page reload, but nothing about remote page wheigh.

    Is it possible to account this traffic?

    Thank you.

    Do you see that page in the access.log each time it is reloaded?

    Yes, one entry for every reload, but only as a 5 byte POST:

    www.example.com||||5||||1.2.3.4 - - [13/Oct/2010:02:06:15 +0200] "POST /script_cURL.php HTTP/1.1" 200 5 "http://www.example.com/" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; msn OptimizedIE8;ESES)"

    Is this script somehow getting cached?

    No AFAIK.

    Every client accesing this page is automatically calling this script every 20 seconds.

    In this script, they are downloading via cURL a remote page, parsing its code, and updating its page with new data.

    I could paste the code if you want

    Yes, maybe that helps in understanding what is happening.
