TaskPipe::Tool::Command__OpenProxies_TestOpenProxies - command to test open proxies
Test the proxies that were retrieved by
fetch open proxies.
test open proxies goes through the list of proxies which
fetch open proxies retrieved.
fetch open proxies should be run, or at least started in advance of running
test open proxies.
test open proxies proceeds through the table of IPs retrieved by
fetch open proxies starting with the proxy that was last tested the longest ago, or not tested at all. Proxies that test successfully are marked
available and will be used by
Proxies that test unsuccessfully are marked for deletion, but not immediately deleted. This is to prevent retesting of proxies retrieved by
fetch open proxies which are known to be dud.
After the time period specified in
clean_dud_proxies_after, dud proxies are deleted completely (and thus will be re-found and re-tested if they remain on any list which
fetch open proxies is gathering IPs from).
test open proxies can be run as a daemon process by including
taskpipe test open proxies --iterate=repeat --shell=background
