As detailed in this ticket: T143045, we have a somewhat large amount of visits to the Wikipedia.org portal page that aren't actual individual users, self identified bots or malicious denial of service (dos) hits.
I'd like to track these 'other' pageviews on the Portal dashboard - as they're frequent enough (daily, weekly, monthly or some other 'set' timeframe that we don't know about) and have enough of an impact to our overall pageviews even though many of these thousands of pageviews come from several single IP's.
These pageviews appear to be some sort of speed test or 'are you alive' test - these types of tests are not uncommon, many large (and small corporations and individuals) hit google.com for that exact purpose. They're not harmful and we shouldn't block them but we should track their impact to our overall pageview counts.
We don't want to publish or otherwise identify these users and their IP's but we need to have the ability to identify them automagically via our event logging so that as new ones appear (and old ones drop off) we don't have to manually add them to our 'other' listing on the dashboard.
