Download failed?

Hey hey hey guys!

Just recently I noticed that I'm getting A LOT of "download failed" errors.

I just tested my proxies, and every single one of them seem to be working great.

I just opened one of the urls in a browser, and it opened well so this must be a SER related issue.

Where should I start hunting for the cause here? I'm running a lot of threads, is that it? I mean like 1000+ at the moment.

I had the site size be set to 5M but I just raised that to 50M. Any other ideas?

    How many proxies are you using with your 1000+ threads?

    You may well be hammering your proxies. Downloading 1 page to test a proxy wont tax it, but running 1000+ threads with 30 proxies may be pushing it. Try lowering your threads and see if that has an effect.

    Well,  I had already created a thread on this that's pretty long and we discovered the issue.  It's with Lists,  If you scrape with SER and let it post you'll be fine but as soon as you start using a list is when you get the download failed.

    Yeah Sorry No fix for it yet. :(  Just something we gotta wait on @sven to come back for. :) 


  • I have 30 right now.

    However, I don't do any kind of scraping with SER so I figured a little less should be just fine.
  • @Hunar, well that might explain, since I have been running lists I've scraped myself. Thanks!
