    I GB might be too low for running more than 10 threads or so. I read somewhere that a single thread uses about 25MB RAM. So 10 threads equates to about 25% of RAM being used up. ANd with the system processes and other stuff in the background, you can't expect too many results.

    It would be great to know exactly amount of memory to run scrapebox.
    I will contact support team to know it.

    Nobody knows it in fact.
    If I can run 10 x 25Mb = 250Mb of ram ... I can try to use cheapest VPS with only 256Gb or 300Gb of ram.

    When I got the reply I will post here.

    Tks!

    I find something:
    Code:
    [PHP]http://scrapeboxfaq.com/getting-started[/PHP]

    CONCLUSION:
    Number of instances x File size that software will need to manage will be the most important.

    I will try it in a 350Mb VPS.

    1GB ram would be ok.

    Though it might crash if it needs more resources.

    2GB would run it very smoothly!

    Stop trolling... I'm running SB on my PC (512MB RAM, 8MB internet connection) using 100 threads and it uses about 20% of the CPU. The success rate is also pretty high - 90-95% on lists that I personally harvest.

    Hello Guys!
    Good to read about 512Mb experience.
    This is far good to show for people who only want to run Scrapebox with 1 or 2Gb that it is possible (I wrote POSSIBLE) TO RUN Scrapebox in a 512Mb based VPS.

    My scrapebox license is stopped for months. I haven't used it.
    I will contract a VPS to run it 24h / day.

    :)

    It depends how big the lists are that you are using with Scrapebox.

    Sure 512MB is enough if it's not server 2008 and if the lists are not bigger than 50k. Server 2008 uses a bit more memory than Server 2003.

    Once you start working with 1 or 2 million URLs, harvesting/deduping or posting/linkchecking with more than 500k URLs etc then you can see how Scrapebox asks for more RAM.

    So from my experience: 512MB minimum, 1GB to work with huge lists and 2GB if other applications should run parallel with Scrapebox.

    Yup that would be fine

    Something you should note:

    There's no set amount it depends on how many connections and how bug the list is.

    I do about 6-7 instances 24/7 ... each instance is doing various tasks though (comments/PR checks etc)
    I have 12gb of DDR3... it runs smoothly.
