we have a (small) issue and I am asking for opinions and help.
Tavendo is providing free hosting of AutobahnJS on Amazon S3 for _development_ purposes, like this
and related files.
Now, in September, our S3 traffic skyrocked to 130 GB / 6 Mio. requests which translates into around 15 US-$. Well, that money isn't a problem
(Tavendo sponsors development of Autobahn's OSS projects, which is of course orders of magniture more cash). However, I am a paranoid: what the hack is going on? Will it be 13TB next month?
After turning on S3 bucket logging today, I recognized that apparently nearly all traffic comes referred from the site
which includes AutobahnJS (I haven't analyze what they do, but they include the file).
We hesitate to take off the whole S3 bucket (since then all would suffer because of 1 misbehaving site).
We have emailed the admins. Waiting for response.
But the general question is: what would be the best for the community _and_ limit our (Tavendo) risk rgd. excessive traffic costs?
Any hints, help, opinions welcome!
