maybe slighly OT, but I've suffered from quite many bots or whatever 
"listeners" staying connected to my server (2.4.4, Debian) permanently, 
consuming a lot of bandwidth. Most of them coming from the Google cloud, 
/w user agent "axios 0.21.4", among some others. I've created a simple 
fail2ban config which bans them for a day on connect. Seems to work...
In case someone has similar problems, let me know.
