Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-1101) Options to purge db_gone records in updatedb
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 12:26:10 GMT


Julien Nioche commented on NUTCH-1101:

The functionality makes sense but I am not really OK with the change of method signature 

public void update(Path crawlDb, Path[] segments, boolean normalize, boolean filter, boolean

and don't think we need to add yet another parameter to the class. Instead we could just rely
on the configuration files - which is exactly what you were advocating for in the case of
NUTCH-1102 :-)

> Add option to updatedb to filter out records with status db_gone (http 404). This is
especially useful in cases where a crawl db is targetted at only a specific site. If the site,
for some reason, suddenly changes a lot of url's we'll get a crawl db filled with garbage.
Since the targetted site is known (or controlled) it is safe to get rid of all these url's:
reduce db size, reduce useless http requests.
