Link Checker reached max number of [500] configured hosts



Hi guys, I am currently working on AEM 6.4 and we are getting errors

: External links for host has reached the maximum number of [ 500 ] configured per host.

This is a bit concerning as we doubt we have reached this max of external links on our site.

First question, is this an issue? I am assuming it is since an error is being thrown. How can I resolve this? I assume i can just increase the default cachable size on the linkchecker implementation.

Second, i would like to know how I can see how many external links we actually have on our site? I cannot see any linkchecker.html on our etc directory, meaning maybe we might be doing the checking and re-writing elsewhere? (Will need to investigate)

This error means external link checker limit of 500 was reached and AEM was not able to verify any new unique URL's hitting the publisher directly.

It can be resolved by increasing the maximum links per host.

* Go to http://<host>:<port>/system/console/configMgr

* Look for "Day CQ Link Checker Info Storage Service"

* Change the maximum links per host

You can check the number by going under the following node from Crxde:
