What are the actor compute units? expand_more
They are used to count how many computing resources have your cloud apps (called actors) consumed on the Apify platform. An actor running with 1GB of memory for one hour consumes 1 compute unit. To learn more, see actor pricing.
What are the proxies? expand_more
For web scraping and crawling, you'll often need to rotate IP address in order to hide the origin of your robots. With Apify Proxy, you'll get access to Apify's pool of datacenter or residential IP addresses, as well as specialized queries for Google Search result pages (SERPs).
