Link Harvest Debug Results

The debug versions of Link Harvest have yielded a mess of inconsistent data. It appears that the link harvest action can fail for any number of reasons.

Some of them:

  • PHP running out of memory.
  • Hitting the script execution time limit.
  • Downloading a media file (.mp3, .mov, etc.).
  • Overzealous firewalls and plugins like Bad Behavior.
  • A myriad of unknown reasons.

I’m going to address the media file issue and explicitly set a long script timeout in a 1.1 release and see if that makes much of a difference. I’m not sure when that will be available, but I wanted to post the results of the debug efforts and thank those that sent in their debug logs.
