Hi,

Couple of things,

  1. It keeps timing out.
  2. Its saying 16k requests, but we added under 10k facebook accounts. Why would this be ?

Many thanks

Scott

Hi!

  1. Timeout happens according to run settings, in your shared run its "600 seconds" and there is several timeouts which was resurrected. Just run actor with "No timeout" option checked.
  2. Actor doing additional requests to get data so amount of requests expected to be greater than amount of start URLs.

I麓m going to close the issue now, but if there would be anything else we could help with, please let us know.

Ok thanks Re point 1.

Sorry Re point 2, what do you mean by additional requests ? Any other Actor I have used the amount of urls you test is the amount of requests it completes. If I submit 10,000 urls, there should be 10,000 requests, how am I meant to guage how many requests the cost it should do before the run starts ?

Hi! Sample run https://console.apify.com/view/runs/z079AmhIsJEhdID1c so from single URL actor doing two requests in total to get all available details. Usage expected to randomly vary because of blocking rate and page(s) privacy, your current usage from 10.000 URLs run should be accurate estimate as long as you use thousands of start URLs, since initial amount of URLs affects scaling. In other words CUs for 1.000 URLs expected to be twice less than for 2.000 URLs etc

I麓m going to close the issue now, but if there would be anything else we could help with, please let us know.

Sorry Alexey but that is not an acceptable response, every other Actor I have used, only uses 1 request for 1 url. This is really poor form on this Actor and feels like a scam to me !

Hi Scott, I'm sorry you feel that way. We're setting the number of requests per run within any Actor with care and trying to decide every time individually in each particular case. With Facebook page contact info Scraper it is as Alexey explained and he also added the reasoning behind - to get all available details, there are two requests needed for one URL. If you want I can explain more about the process, but the decision has been made with a lot of consideration, and without any intention to scam anyone :) Hope it's understandable.
