They often often creates 100+ requests a day. I do check online guest when i am in doubt what they are here for, so i have a good feeling with what is going on.
On a forum I'm an admin on, we blocked Ahref for eating too many resources. https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... #p15594991

I don't believe in blocking those service robots, we do have the resources on the website to have them around. So unless they become an issue, i don't see a good reason to block them. :)

Makes sense actually. This is a webmaster chat forum while the site I mentioned is just a small computer chat forum. We're probably just not the type to benefit from those kinds of services, nor do we subscribe to Ahrefs.
