What can you tell me about the eValid spider capacity? How big a site can you run and what are the technical limits?
Thanks for asking.
The spider capacity is determined by the limits of your machine, because if you run the spider on a VERY large website you'll see that when you have accumulated over, say, 50,000 links the size of the eValid internal table is so large that your machine starts to use virtual memory and things do slow down.
We have had relatively strong machine run well over 250,000 links and over 50,000 pages, but that kind of scan takes a long time (remember, eValid has to download every page being scanned, so this can be a long process).
In practical terms, we generally recommend scans of less thatn 5,000 pages and/or less than 50,000 links.
Besides, much larger and you really can't absorb all of the data eValid generates for you.
