Typical run times...

Yes, I know message boards have search features built in to them...

Nevertheless, we have been setting up phpdig and as a test have had it spider several message boards hosted on our server. One such board has about 9000 posts, and I realize, probably a lot of links that loop round and round... I set recursion at 2 and let phpdig go. 16 hours later it was still at it!

Is this typical? What are some runtimes some of you have experienced, and on what size of a site? Not necessarily looking for other message board crawling times, just anything in general that I can compare against.

Since some of these sites are "our" sites and on a local connection, it might be prudent to remove the sleep(2) call in spider.php to speed things up...

Hi. You might try using the PhpDig include and exclude comments for the header and footer, and if not already done, try running PhpDig from shell rather than from a browser.

Another idea, off the top of my head, would be to write a quick script to port the post URLs to a file, and then just crawl that file at level one.

For those sites that take a looong time to index, it might be nice to have interruptible indexing (stop for a while, I'll tell you when to continue) - but that's a mod request and should be placed elsewhere I guess?

Anyway, if I can influence the design of the site to be indexed, what advice can I get from the gurus? What are the DOs and the DONTs for quick indexing? Where does PhpDig loose a lot of time when indexing sites? ...

What I ended up doing was breaking my list of URL's into 7, 8, 9 or 10 sublists and then starting a crawler for each of them.


Doesn't make any individual site crawl faster, but the whole gets completed quicker.
