Scan is Interrupting and WebInspect is automatically exiting when the Workflow is used.

Scan is Interrupting and WebInspect is automatically exiting when the Workflow is used.

Scan is Interrupting and WebInspect is automatically exiting when the Workflow (Multiple Macros as well as Single Macro) is used after the crawl and audit for almost 6 - 8 hours.

 

I also verified that the free space on the disk is almost 35 GB.

 

I had disabled the 'Stop Scan If Loss Of Connectivity Detected' option from the Scan Settings > Requestor screen and the scan had automatically interrupted and WebInspect exited.

 

Also tried with the 'Stop Scan If Loss Of Connectivity Detected' option from the Scan Settings > Requestor screen option enabled and the scan had automatically interrupted and WebInspect exited.

 

How can I figure out what is the actual problem?

 

Please help.

I am also getting the OutOfMemoryException in the log file as mentioned below:

System.OutOfMemoryException: Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.
at SPI.Diagnostics.GCUtils.HandleOutOfMemoryException(ILog log, String fn, OutOfMemoryException e, Int32 tryCount, Int32 maxTries)

Re: Scan is Interrupting and WebInspect is automatically exiting when the Workflow is used.

Out of memory is for Process(memory occupied by webinspect scan on RAM). In windows each process can have only 1.35GB(Approx)... If it reached near to the values thi error may occur.

 

In Scan Settings-->Requestor tab -->Requester Performance-->use separate requestors

Set

CRWL Requester thread count to 1

Audit requestor thread counter to 1 (instead of 10)

 

By reducing number Audit requestor thread counter to 1 may reduce the pressure on Memory.

.......

After above solution also If still your system is out memory error your web site or your Macro must be very huge. May be more than 3K CRWL URL...

then divide your web site into small parts (Based on Structure of the web site) by adding session exclusions with RegEx.

 

*If above procedured worked or not also dont forget tell back to us :).

This is becoming a daily problem , I believe there should be a more controlled memory management so if the WI near to exceed his Ram Max size , then he should reduce requests automatically or Pause scan and present the user a message to manually reduce the scan , not just crash .

yes yasser... I am really bcoming crazy with this error.......I have scaned  one application for 41 hours  with WI with 3 Requestors.. Later It crashed .... :( So have to start again..

 

Now I am observing the scan every other minute and if I can see  wrning for memory ,I am pausing (Suspend)it and resumeing it... So it continues...

 

If I missed any of such warning my scan ending up with error and stoping of scan......

 

Hate you WI....
