I believe these are making a request to / on your apache server.
Assuming whatever is at / (your home page?) is resource intensive and 
causing your problems, you could try using mod_rewrite to redirect those 
requests to something small and static.
Maybe something like:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^.*internal\ dummy\ connection.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/$ /small_static.html [L]

There's probably some better redirects to handle this (assuming your / 
resource is the problem), but the above might help.
