Subject Re: "" is misunderstood?

My understanding is that only up to the maximum number of outlinks are 
processed for a page when updating the web db. I assume the same page 
won't get fetched and processed again in the next fetch/update cycles, 
then you won't get those outlinks exceeding the maximum number no matter 
how many cycles you are running.

To make sure all of the outlinks are processed for a page, the must be set to a number that is larger than the 
number of outlinks on the page. If these is true, then the max number 
has to be determined in real time since the number of outlinks varies 
from page to page. 

Is my understanding correct?
