Hello,

The crawling time itself depends on the website page generation time mainly, since it crawls the site similar to search engine bots.
For instance, if it it takes 1 second to retrieve every page, then 1000 pages will be crawled in about 16 minutes.

In this case looks like pages are loading much slower though.

Just for statistic. There's something to add: 105,000 dynamically generated pages are scanned by the script about 12 hours, but as I learned, proceeding from the simplest calculations, it's normal.

So, the answer is: it's normal.

We have updated to v.8 on our dev server. Approx. 12.000 pages after 12 hours. Hardware ist excellent.
Production server still v7.2, comparable hardware, identical crawler configuration and pages: all 38.000 pages in 5 hours.
This is not  normal.
Do you have any ideas?

Exactly. It was faster before installing v8.0
