AEM LinkChecker is based on an Event-Handler and gets called on create and update for /content and its child.

How it works:

  • Author save any link (RTE or component), event handler get invoked.
  • Link checker event Handler traverse /content and checks for new/updated links, once found it will store that mapping under /var/linkchecker cache folder
  • Day CQ Link Checker Service - It checks for the scheduler.period configuration. Once scheduler time is met, it triggers the scheduler to validate the links syntax. You can configure the scheduler periord (AFAIR, its in seconds)
  • Day CQ Link Checker Task Syntax results are pushed under /etc/linkchecker. However, links remains in pending state until link checker task executed & validate these links.
    • This can also be scheduled in seconds.
