 +Here's an example of a watch screen from a crawler running on a larger site: 
 + 
 +{{:​litespeed_wiki:​cache:​lscwp:​troubleshooting:​lscwp-crawler2.jpg?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +And here is an explanation of some of the terms: 
 +  * ''​Size'':​ The number of URLs in the sitemap. This example has 181. 
 +  * ''​Crawler'':​ Indicates which crawler number you are watching. It's number 1 in this example. There could be multiple crawlers working, depending on your settings. 
 +  * ''​Position'':​ The URL number currently being fetched from the sitemap list. 
 +  * ''​Threads'':​ Indicates the number of threads currently being used to fetch URLs. There may be multiple threads fetching. It is smart and will adjust based on your load [[litespeed_wiki:​cache:​lscwp:​configuration:​crawler|settings]]. 
 +  * ''​Status'':​ Indicates the current crawler status. In this example, ''​Stopped due to reset meta position''​ means that the site purged or the sitemap changed while it was crawling, and as such, the crawler will restart from the top.
  
 If you wish to keep a particular path from being crawled, you may enter it in the **Sitemap Generation Blacklist** box and press **Save**. After the crawler has run for the first time, if it encounters any pages marked ''​do-not-cache''​ they will be added to this Blacklist automatically. If you wish to keep a particular path from being crawled, you may enter it in the **Sitemap Generation Blacklist** box and press **Save**.
