I did  a much deeper analysis, stripping of HEAD requests, limiting to response code 200, found that the great majority of hits were robots, stripped out those IPs, and usage was low indeed. Even lower when limited to RTSP requests. Looks like the majority of requests for file were in fact HTTP request for metafiles containing an rtsp:// URL which was not subsequently satisfied by by an RTSP request: that is,   people were requesting videos through their web browser, but didn’t have RealPlayer nor the RealPlayer plug-in to actually watch the video.

Most hits were on Leonard Perry’s Perennial Pages

and extensions Across the Fence pages

Those folks should be contacted and advised. Is that an SAA job or a CTL job?

CMSI hits appear common, too, but I can’t ascribe a definitive owner. However, since they may be related to a course, I’m sure CTL will hear about it if they don’t work
