The README is used to introduce the module and provide instructions on
how to install the module, any machine dependencies it may have (for
example C compilers and installed libraries) and any other information
that should be provided before the module is installed.
A README file is required for CPAN modules since CPAN extracts the
README file from a module distribution so that people browsing the
archive can use it get an idea of the modules uses. It is usually a
good idea to provide version information here so that people can
decide whether fixes for the module are worth downloading.
To install this module type the following:
perl Makefile.PL --> creates make file
make --> automatically checks dependencies and install required packages from CPAN
make test --> tests not working need to write some
make install --> avoid installing it since in development phase
Creating Database
createdb -W -O crawler -U crawler crawlerdb --> crawler is user
--> crawlerdb is DB name
--> default password is 'crawler'
All default database values can be changed in MCrawler_config.yml
psql -f <root_dir>/MCrawler_DB.sql -U crawler -d crawlerdb --> creates database
create roles for database clients:
login psql with super user permissions
CREATE ROLE "client_"<client_id> WITH LOGIN PASSWORD <client_database_password> ;
example: CREATE ROLE client_8989 WITH LOGIN PASSWORD 'secret';
Starting the Crawler and Server
cd <Root_directory>
perl Crawler.PL
Starting Client
perl MClient.PL
Client command format:
Making new request --> new_request
Checking messages from server --> check_inbox
Queueing a URL --> queue_url <request_id> <url>
Queueing a file with URLs --> queue_file <request_id> <file_location>
Other Settings --> downloads_type <request_id> <user_value> not_used
--> depth_of_search <request_id> <user_value> default_value -> 3
--> refresh_rate <request_id> <user_value> default_value -> 60*60*24
--> allowed_content <request_id> <user_value> default_value -> html|txt
--> user_agent <request_id> <user_value> default_value -> MCrawler bot (
--> dequeue_request <request_id>
--> check_status <request_id>
