Yup, upon further investigation I find this to be an internal dummy connection used by Apache. At least, that's what the logs seem to point towards :)

Looking at tcpdump I see fairly regular HTTP requests. I'll tell tcpdump to dump packet contents so I can see what's actually going on the wire - probably end up finding something seriously misconfigured. Thanks! :)

Postfix and named are the only things listening on the interface. Postfix also seems to have a lot of UNIX sockets. Even so, an exabyte is an awful lot of data to be coming from postfix. I should mention this is after only 69 days of uptime.
