Just looking at logs of a not-so-busy site on one of our Apache servers and notice tons of these in the log:

::1 - - [15/Apr/2011:12:11:40 -0700] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 -
::1 - - [15/Apr/2011:12:11:41 -0700] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 -
::1 - - [15/Apr/2011:12:11:44 -0700] "OPTIONS * HTTP/1.0" 200 -

They seem to appear multiple times just below the GET requests where Apache has served a page & its related images.

  1. what do they mean?
  2. what IP is "::1"?
  3. if they're benign can I suppress them?
