- User tracking - abuse?

Some genuine, some questionable. Some just users that seem to be
downloading the site en-masse. I have started using php & mysql to track
the IP, host, browser, proxy of all visitors and am trying to gauge how many
pages to serve within one hour before restricting access.
What do you consider to be a reasonable number of visits per hour? Do many
bots rush through a site?
I know this is a vague question, but at least you guys may have some
experience in this area. Before you say it I have tried to Google for
this - no luck at all.
Is there a better way to block abuse of a site???
Re: User tracking - abuse?
Why do you want to restrict access to your site?
If your site is popular, I expect that the extra bandwidthbill of your ISP
is a luxuryproblem.
I also used bots to download a site on my local HD for offline browsing
(this was before ADSL was cheap).
So why do you want to restrict your visitors?
just my 2 cent.
