Here is an entry in a sample Raw Log file. It recurrs about every 1/3 second (300 milliseconds). It adds superfluous 1000 KB of redundancy to otherwise 11 KB file logging web access entries: "GETs. - - [17/Aug/2015:12:05:40 -0500] "POST /wp-login.php/wp-login.php HTTP/1.0" 401 23 "-" "-". How can this pollution be eliminated from expected Log file entries? If it is a polling mechanism, can the polling interval be adjusted? Is the polling required to achieve the Log File?

Thank you for your question about your bloated logfile. That IP address is not ours. It appears to be coming from Slovakia. You may want to block that IP address from accessing your site unless you know who it is and why they would be doing this.

Kindest Regards,
