Re: Nutch robot hitting our Web servers

Hi Ric,

The timing of the requests seems nice: > 5 seconds between each GET, it is too much for your machines?. Does it respect Robots.txt ?
My take on that is a bad parsing of links, most likely caused by malformed ones. Could you identify where the links would came from?

Thank you for the email. Can you provide some more information? For example,
how many requests does the bot make per second, does it respect robots.txt, etc?
