When I'm scanning links with SB, the proxies are "detected to be down" and the list moves down really quickly because, I think, I'm using many threads with the proxies at the same time causing them to be "detected as down," when they're actually not.
For example, if I re-test the not working proxies while my link checking is going on, they're all still working, but that requires me to re-test every X minutes because they're flying down quickly.
Is it possible to add an option for the Internal server... "re-try proxy X times before marking as down"? This should pretty much solve this issue, as if GSA PS re-tried the proxies it would see that they were indeed still up and working properly.

Actually it seems this isn't anything to do with multiple servers. When you're running a lot of threads, GSA PS will just automatically zoom down the list and mark them all as "down" even when they're all working. "re-try proxy X times before marking as down" option should be perfect for avoiding running down to 0 working proxies in under 30 minutes.
Yes I can confirm 100% that it's using many threads that cause GSA to mark the proxies as being down when they're not. It seems that ~500 threads is the limit otherwise the list flies down and you go from 30k -> 0 in under 30 minutes. "re-try proxy X times before marking as down" would be perfect and allow for many more threads to be run.
