It's worth checking under Admin -> Property Settings in GA that the default URL is actually the same as the URL of the domain the tracking code is installed on.

Could your app developers check for connectivity on a page like "testconn.php" instead of "/". That way you can just exclude that page from your reports. You can filter if the hits are coming from the same host/network/provider, IP address/IP range or maybe a unique browser version. If you can find a common factor in these then you can filter it this way.

I had a similar issue -- in my case it turned out that my logged-out homepage was using a different header file than the rest of the site, and I did not have the GA tracking code in the logged-out homepage header.

Google Analytics uses a JavaScript snippet to do all the tracking. No JavaScript runs on redirect requests. That means that Google Analytics can't track redirects directly.

You will not be able to merge your historical data from multiple GA properties. What you can do in the future is use the same exact GA code on multiple sites to 'merge the data'.

If you change how events are reported to Google Analytics it will not cause historical data to change. You will always be able to query the historical data is it has been reported.

No, unfortunately it's not literally 100,000 different people. More accurately, it's 100,000 different cookie values.
