Prevent Web Crawlers from creating many sessions

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • I found the following issue that indicated there is a fix that adds a valve to prevent crawlers from creating many sessions.
  • I am wondering if there is a patch for EAP 5.1.0 that implements the valve.
  • How can I stop bot / crawler / spider from creating too many sessions on JBoss server side ?
  • How do I enable CrawlerSessionManagerValve in JBoss ?
