Too many GET requests in 1 second --> web host blocks our IP


is it normal for CA Providence 1.7.8 to generate 84 GET requests within 1 second, if only 1 user is logged in and working in a test system with only a few records?

I ask this because our IP is regularly blocked for one hour by the web hosting provider because the protection systems of the server suspect an attack due to the many GET requests. Since we use a managed server, we unfortunately have no configuration options for those security systems.

Attached is an example Apache access log for a 1 second period.

Thanks for help in advance!

    Hi Ralph,
    I suppose it's normal.
    I checked my CA (1.7.6) website with the Google's tool "pagespeed":
    and it seems that a lot of javascript libraries and .css files are loaded, just for one page.
    (And a lot of them are unused. Maybe a cleaning for future version of CA should be useful.)
    Hope this will help you.
