I was looking through my apache logs trying to debug something, and I noticed the following in my logs:

IP removed1 - - [17/Oct/2011:08:58:51 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

IP removed2 - - [17/Oct/2011:08:58:51 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

IP removed1 - - [17/Oct/2011:08:58:52 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

IP removed3 - - [17/Oct/2011:09:02:52 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

IP removed1 - - [17/Oct/2011:09:02:53 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

IP removed3 - - [17/Oct/2011:09:02:54 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 200 1506 "-" "Go http package"

What is it? All it ever does is a GET /, so should I be concerned?

Also, as you can see by IP removed*, I noticed three separate IP addresses.

It appears to be a user agent for requests made by Go, one of Google's programming languages. It looks like someone may be trying to script requests to your site.

There were three different IPs - probably should have mentioned that. –  jrg Oct 17 '11 at 13:12
