    Hi all,

    I have 50 semi dedicated proxies, that are very decent. Based on this how many threads can i set GSA to? I have set it to 70 and it is only using 15% of the cpu and seems slow. When I increase to 200 then it is much faster of course and utilizes 50% cpu which i think is great. I can push it further.

    Regarding threads though is there a limit in terms of the ratio of threads to proxies that I can hit? I am more worried about Scraping and that too many threads will result in too many google queries. Is that possible? What is the max I can push GSA with 50 proxies?

    It's pretty hard to judge how many threads you can run with x amount of proxies. Keep in mind SER has hundreds of search engines it can scrape from so if you have a decent number of search engines picked, its not constantly querying Google but switching between other SE's too.

    Turning up the threads isn't the only thing that can increase the speed. You can also adjust the time between search engine queries and this improves things quite a bit but then again you're hammering your proxies more.
