Reactor times out and doesn't give back any results

Closed

5starsvr opened this issue
a year ago

Hello, throughout the day I've been trying to scrap data from VRBO and it'd either timeout after five minutes or keep running forever or give me a "failed" status, I have tried latest and DEV branch and tried with/without proxies, same result. Out of 20 runs I might get one of them working. Can you please investigate and fix this ASAP as we're dependent on it? Thanks in advance and have a good day.

It doesn't give any logs back but gives an error 400, an unhandled error happened at the container or something.

This is my input: https://api.apify.com/v2/key-value-stores/9wgmsSLBUiv32i1xV/records/INPUT This is my output, I aborted after it took too long to give back results: https://api.apify.com/v2/logs/R8Ye1nYwMY97Btw2x I tried all of the types possible of proxies and still, can't search. I am attempting to search for a single vrbo property, it was working recently but since yesterday it no longer does.

Hello, it's still not working. I've tried and it'd run infinitely for 10 minutes or so, I've noticed that VRBO have updated their website, can you recheck if the endpoints or selectors you're using to scrape the data are the same and unchanged? Please, we need this working again urgently. It'd be greatly appreciated if you could fix it ASAP. Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day.

Also, try to re-run the actor using this input I gave above and see if it works for you. Because I've tried a lot and it's not working at all.

Okay now after some retries, it worked twice but then started giving errors once again:

Hi, Thanks for your patient. I try to improve the actor so it could handle Access denied errors gracefully. Please try using Apify residential proxy or disable proxy. For specific listing IDs, I suggest requesting all at once instead one-by-one, to reduce rick of access error (403, 429, etc.) You can input it using location parameter: "ID1, ID2, ID3" or input multiple rows instead. Please inform me of any more errors, I'll be glad to help.

Hello, do you see those 3 images? Well, as I see, your actor is having a retry mechanism. Can you add an option somewhere for me to turn off these retries? So if I set retries = false or something, your actor doesn't retry. If any errors occurs, it fails immediately. As I've handles for this in my code and it'd make my code run much faster. Appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Hey Michael 👋, I've added option in Advanced Options -> Disable Retries or dev_no_retry = true

Hello, Can you explain what does "💤 waiting for other runs to complete (RUNNING) ... [15]" mean? Please make it as clear as possible. To my understanding, the actor waits for other Apify runs to finish? If that's correct, can that be disabled? This wastes a huge amount of time!

Please investigate this issue as I will be subscribing to your Actor using other accounts, but I need this issue eliminated first. Thanks in advance!
