Xevil timeout too fast

Is there a way to increase the timeout before second request with xevil, I am finding the timeout is too fast and a second attempt is submitted while first is still being solved.

The issue may be stemming from x-evils issues with proxies, since it will timeout for 60 seconds "attempting to connect" to a proxy, and then retry the connection which is always successful.

    timeout for recaptcha is 120seconds, for normal captchas really think it's not enough for a software based solution?
  • Oh I think it's plenty of time, issue is xevil often takes 60-90 seconds to make the proxy connection (regardless of speed)...I emailed them as well to see why 
  • Already sent you a pm regard t his some time ago, it should be 240 seconds default.
  • SvenSven
    ok next update will use 240seconds here

    Not sure why u guys have problems, i am getting solves on average below 100 sec.

    • In Xevil, set time out to default 250 for time out and for row timeout.
    • Use a decent VPS with at least 16GB RAM and decent CPU like a E5
    • Use quality proxies (allot ) - i use only dedicated http proxies - not cheap socks proxies.

    Do you mind sharing exact server specs and the max amount of threads that it is able to run? Is there any GPU? Did you disable anything in xevil .ini files? 

    The reason i ask is, Xevil likes to hang the whole server. 

    Also, ive seen posts that were deleted from xrumer forum that theres a bitcoin miner inside xevil, anyone willing to investigate? :)

    Thanks, but u didnt mention the max amount threads that Xevil is able to run.

    Sorry i missed the threads part.

    Xevil dont have a thread setting, it is the recapcha module that has the thread setting.I find the sweet spot for me is 50 threads, but this will greatly depends on what resources u have available, so it is different for everyone.

    You will have to balance it between gsa ser threads and xevil threads, and reduce if you run out of resources or u see que over run mesages.
    I could push it higher but then u run into time out issues, specially if it is mostly solving recaptcha. 
  • SvenSven
    in SER you can set a max thread limit for Xevil in it's captcha options (double click on it).
  • I have xevil running on a proxmox vm, 80 cores across 4 CPUS (granted shared across VMs, but at any given time about 40% avil) and 40gb of ram for the instances.

    It seems to be an xevil issue when using proxies, ive observed the first proxy connect attempt, no matter what timeout after 60 seconds and then the second proxy connect attempt works. 

    I tried using virtio nics, e100s, etc... it seems like its just an xevil bug. 
  • I agree with you, XEvil captcha and proxy connection is relatively slow, we need longer waiting time

    @webbyte ;

    What kind of proxies are u using  ( socks \ html \ web )?
    Do they need username password or are they ip authorised ?
