Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker | Finder » CPU/RAM Consuming + Cache

  • Resolved stfa76



    I have a website with thousands of articles:
    Every time I tested one of those Broken Link checker plugin in the past, it took several hours and was heavily consuming the CPU/RAM of the server.
    And most of them did not even finished the scan because they end up being stuck.

    I haven’t installed miniOrange Broken Link Checker | Finder yet but is it going to be the same hours long scanning and heavy CPU/RAM consuming as any other previous plugins I tested so far?

    I also have a triple cache layer on my website:
    – Redis Object Cache:
    – WP Rocket cache plugin:
    – CDN Cache using BunnyCDN:

    When you say “please try after clearing the cache it will definitely work” =>
    Do you mean that every time you have to scan the website, you must clear the entire cache before (Redis + Cache + CDN)?

    Thank you,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    I would like to inform you that caching might be one of the reasons for the scan being stuck on your site.

    The can be stuck issue mostly arises because some hosting providers do not support crons on WordPress sites.
    Can you please let me know the hosting provider that you have?

    If it supports cron and still scan is being stuck then clearing cache will scan the site. 
    If not, this can be resolved after setting up a cron hosting provider. 

    Can you please raise a query through the plugin support form. Our technical team members will reach out to you for assistance.

    Thank you,
