Every now and then, I see many job logs (sometimes as many as 800) on our 
system that are all identical and have a date/time stamp within a few minutes 
time.  I am trying to find out what kind of jobs these are and who is 
submitting them.  

I am copying one of the job logs below.  Does anyone know what kind of job this 
user is trying to run?  (I can see that the job is trying to call the LPD.)  
Are they really trying to submit 800 different jobs?  Or is this something 
coming from the internet and I am getting a job log for each line of a print 
job that is trying to print?  

Also, I don't have a clue who belongs to the IP address listed in the job logs. 
The last time (a couple of weeks ago) that I saw these job logs, the IP address 
was different. Is there any way to tell who this is?

We are at V4R4 and using Websphere Advanced Edition 3.02.
