    Hi there, I've been using Scrapebox for a couple of years but I'm always learning new things about it. I have it running on a VPS with Xeon E5 CPU and 4GB RAM. When posting, the CPU is always at 100%, no matter how many threads I'm using. I tested less/more threads and it didn't make a huge difference, so I'm running it at about 100. The success rate seems to be pretty good (though I never tested it on high-end configurations).

    I wanted to know if people who are running it on dedicated servers with more powerful CPUs notice a big difference when scraping/posting. Scraping has to do mostly with the number of proxies, right? I read loopline's and other's recommendations, so i use something like 1 thread per 50-100 proxies when harvesting from Google.

    Any tips for Scrapebox poster that can really make things a lot better? Thanks.

    The poster has to process a LOT of data, 100 webpages, which could be tens of MB each, all loading and processing endlessly is a lot of load. The poster/link checker are the biggest load users, they max out my dedicated servers. So you can just use 100 threads and it will all go as fast as it can and windows will try and manage it all. You would have to get below the threshold of maxing out the cpu to notice a differecne.


    Post with 1 thread for example, it will not use all your CPU, but when you go over the threshold, windows is just working in que and processing as fast as it can. So going down to like 75 threads won't make a difference, if the threshold is say 35, it will just work in que and keep the cpu maxed out. If that makes sense.

    Yeah, it makes sense. I already lowered the number of threads to 30 and about 40% of the CPU is used, I can probably still increase a little. Let's see if this means more successful posts.

    sounds good. Im not sure it will dramatically increase success rates, although it may.
