Question

Monitor inbound traffic to my droplet

After build some web apps in my droplets, I saw a lot of spam form same user over and over again, but my apps, can’t detect IP’s. I’m looking for a tool to see and manage the network traffic into my droplet. The best tool I can wish for, is one that include map show where from trying to reach my site. Is that something that include in my droplet ? or something I can install in my droplet ? (maybe open source solution…)

Hi there @xdavidt,

There are a couple of things that I could suggest:

  • You could manually check your access logs or use this script here to summarize the logs for you and show you the IPs that are generating the most requests.

  • You could sign up for Cloudflare which comes with some defense systems like DDoS protection and a firewall where you could monitor the activity of your website

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
