in reply to Checking links with LWP::UserAgent

You might want to look at the various solutions I've posted in my columns, specifically to parallelize the probing. Be cautious, however, that you don't overwhelm the server under test. {grin}

    Thanks for the link & advice, Randal. I've got a database of around 200 URLs, say I checked 10 at a time using LWP::parallel it shouldn't hurt the server too much, shoult it?

    It's a preety high-spec dedicated machine. What would anyone say would be the limit to these parallel connections?
