Item Description
Address URL of the task.

Pages Scanned Number of pages scanned (searched).

Files Downloaded Number of files downloaded.

Pages Queued Number of web pages that were found but not scanned (searched) yet.

Files Queued Number of files already found, but not downloaded yet. This value does not take into account the fact that some of these files can be discarded by a filter (e.g. file size, image size, etc.). So the real number of downloaded files almost always less than this value.

Status Status of the task. Can be one of the following values:
  • Undefined - the task is being created
  • Paused - the task is paused
  • Queued - the task waits its turn to start executing
  • Executing - the task is executing
  • Done - the task is done
