GSA 6.44 poor scraping results

I have been running this campaign for a couple of days and while my LPM isn't great in any way (between 0.5 and 2) I don't really care cause my comp is running in the background 24/7.

However after updating to v6.44 today I immediately noticed something wasn't working as it should.

It seems the scraper cant find any targets, my log is filled with all these 000/000
As I said everything was working OK before, but after this 6.44 update my LPM is 0.00, occasionally it happens to finds some targets and my LPM raises to 0.04 or something.

I have never seen GSA getting such poor results, so it must be something wrong with this update and the changes of how it scrapes.

I noticed in changelog it says: "improved search engine handling and search for target urls".

Search engines I use:

Off course I would love to use Google, but these days it just doesn't work. My 10 private proxies is banned from Google in like 10 min.

    I'm also starting to see proxy might be blocked on....
    Again, this never happened before v6.44 (except for Google of course, which I abounded some weeks ago, tried everything there, but my proxies just gets banned. I'm using

    I haven't touched my settings for anything in GSA over the last couple of days.
  • same thing happen to me too
  • @Gurkan
    did you contact support
    several weeks ago I had one such set and immediately (within minutes) gave me a clean set of new proxies

    I use 30 semi-private from and in past week or so never had a single proxy kicked even temporarily

    my settings are:
    waiting time 8 secs
    currently 66 threads
    I use private proxies only for searching (scraping)
    PR is done with public proxies
    all else directly = w/o proxies

    SER 6.44 zero problem
  • I never had any problems with LPM since the new update, although I did get the same problems with private proxies being dead.
  • Just wanted to let @Sven know that today my campaign is running as it should again :) I don't know if there was some temporary errors with my proxies or if the v6.45 version fixed it.

    @hans51 I have contacted buyproxies before when I had some problems with my proxies, but this time I think it was not the problem as it occured just after I updated to 6.44

    But it doesn't matter any longer, everything is working ok again!
