Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-628) Host database to keep track of host-level information
Date Sat, 02 Jul 2011 07:31:28 GMT


Lewis John McGibbney commented on NUTCH-628:

>From previous discussion on this ticket I think there is evidence that this class has
some useful credentials. The problem is that the issue is still open and that there is no
entry for this in current /bin/nutch script. Is it worth while providing a patch for this?

> Nutch would benefit from having a DB with per-host/domain/TLD information.  For instance,
Nutch could detect hosts that are timing out, store information about that in this DB.  Segment/fetchlist
Generator could then skip such hosts, so they don't slow down the fetch job.  Another good
use for such a DB is keeping track of various host scores, e.g. spam score.

> This way you could store arbitrary information under arbitrary keys.

> of statistics could consist of a few predefined gauges, totals and averages.
