Linkbot Pro 4.0: The Best Gets Better (Part 2)

By David Fiedler All about those new featuresLinkbot Pro's new features address the kinds of improvements that Webmasters and serious developers will applaud: Speed enhancements: up to 30 threads can be activated at once, which really helps with large sites. I was able to check all of WebDeveloper.com -- including external links -- in about 50 minutes on a 56 kbps line, which is pretty good when you realize that there are almost 5000 links to check. Also, one of the problems I had with Linkbot 3.6 was that it was unable to even process our site correctly...it would hang up at the end, unable to kill its threads, usually forcing me to kill the entire process and thereby losing the results of an entire two-hour run. This problem seems to be gone in Linkbot Pro 4.0...I even ran a "torture test" of using the new Linkbot while a massive (75 MB) FTP download was running, and no problems were encountered. Orphaned files: Linkbot Pro will detect "orphan" files that it doesn't believe are referenced by any HTML pages. While this can be useful, you shouldn't start deleting files from this particular report's results without careful thought, since Linkbot can't detect if a file is being included by SSI or referenced by a CGI or Java applet.
