( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
All the input has been great. Plus I have the urge to actually write the thing now. I am thinking about going ahead with my idea for a "overlord" of types, I would like to be able to logon, see what pages are being looked at, start/stop any of the bots, and change discard links I dont want them to follow that they are coming up on.

I am thinkin about a 4 process system, the overlord, and 3 bots, I want to make them slow and smart, I don't really care if it takes them a day to get through 1000 pages, or even less.

My main concern is the response time for the searches.

What do you (all) recommend for the database? Remember I will not spend a bunch of $$$ for anything. I know how horrible MySQL is with over 500,000 of anything (ie rows in a table). I need more guidance with that portion.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
