Proxy Status Page

When you're preparing to run requests -- especially if they involve large numbers of short-interval, recurrent proxy server connections -- it's a good idea to check the condition of the proxy servers you'll use.

You can view the status of any proxy server by clicking its name in the dashboard. The status page shows a variety of information, including:

  • Current Status
  • Hostname
  • IP address
  • Geographic Location
  • IP Rotation Time
  • Number of outgoing IPs
  • Hosting Provider
  • Pingdom Monitoring Chart
  • Your bandwidth usage on the proxy server
  • Daily & Weekly Traffic & Load charts

Current Status Messages

When a proxy server is working well, then Current Status will read available. But under certain error conditions, there will be different status messages. The errors shown below are all temporary and relatively rare. Proxy servers generally have over 99% uptime, and you can check the pingdom status of all proxies at ProxyMesh Status.

Status Meaning
available The proxy server is working normally.
failed proxy checks The proxy server is down, unavailable, or under high load. The web server checks each proxy every 15 minutes, and if that check fails, this message is shown.
many failing requests Proxy server logs indicate that few requests are succeeding. There could be an issue with the outgoing IPs, the proxy server could be unavailable or under high load, or the log checks are failing.
request timeouts Proxy server logs indicate that a large proportion of requests are timing out. There could be an issue with the outgoing IPs, the proxy server could be unavailable or under high load, or there's some kind of network outage at the datacenter.
no outgoing IPs Proxy rotation has temporarily failed. This is usually resolved within 15 minutes.
replication delay There is a delay in replicating the primary database to the proxy server. This can happen after an unexpected server failure or reboot. Any changes made in the web site will not be replicated to the affected proxy server until the problem is fixed. When multiple proxies have replication delays, then there will be a banner at the top of the page stating that "Many proxies are experiencing a database replication delay". This can happen when the primary database has a server failure or unexpected reboot.
few open proxies available The open proxy has fewer than 50 outgoing IPs available. While there are thousands of open proxies that are checked every 15 minutes, sometimes they are so unreliable or error prone, that very few pass the checks.
