The following lines appear in the BM HTTP proxy log file:

....
1.2.3.4 - - [04/Oct/2004:00:04:36 +0800] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.0" 504 1690
1.2.3.4 - - [04/Oct/2004:00:04:36 +0800] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.0" 504 1690

.... where 1.2.3.4 is the public IP of the BM server. The BM seems to be
accessing itself. Why does it want to access itself though? The
activity happens ~25 times every second.
