Usage statistics on my web server indicate huge numbers of page hits. Investigation has revealed that the bulk of the hits are coming from the servers own IP address. Rather than from a web browser, the 'User Agent' making the hits is 'SimplePie/1.2', which is part of the WP install.
The server provider limits monthly bandwidth usage, so this is a problem for me.
Question: Why is SimplePie chewing up huge amounts of bandwidth, and how can I reduce it's bandwidth consumption?
Thanks in advance,
