I'm badly affected with 'Google AppEngine-Google' UserAgent.. receiving 5/6 requests per second on http server. This bot is crawling my site just like GoogleBot does.

Following is the sample of url in my access logs. - - [19/May/2010:01:27:06 +0000] "GET /some-url/etc-123.htm HTTP/1.1" 200 4707 "-" "AppEngine-Google; (+; appid: harpy000)"

I have checked the ip address it is registered with Google Inc.

Can anyone tell me where i can report Abuse to Google Inc. Or any information about this issue.

Thank you!

you consider 5-6 requests per second abuse? WHat is your definition of low load? 1 request per minute? 5-6requests per second are not massive crawling, they are "no load". – TomTom May 19 '10 at 6:31
:-), 5 to 6 requests per second doesn't impact any load but nobody would like illegal crawler. Bad crawler should be block straight away. Rough analysis shows, he is a Developer hosted his application on Google AppEngine and and crawling data illegally. – Imran May 19 '10 at 8:21

You can report Google App Engine abuse using the following form: The App has a web page at this address: There is also a link to a Twitter page (the owner?), maybe you can contact him.
