Cleanup Scheduler

D | Last updated: Dec 07, 2016 09:31AM UTC

Hi everyone I am developing a custom Burp extension which basically modifies HTTP requests and responses (using IHttpListener) of various third-party tools. Since some of these tools are running for a rather long time, I would like to implement a scheduler which does a cleanup, lets say every 10 minutes. I was thinking about the following tasks: - Deleting the proxy history - Deleting the sitemap In the past, I noticed that a growing sitemap and history is consuming more and more memory and will definitively slow down Burp (in the given case). Are there any other potential cleanup tasks I can perform (within my extension) to optimize Burp for the given case? Maybe there are settings (which I currently don't know) which can already solve my problem? Best regards D.

I just found the setting "Disable logging to history and site map", are there any other settings I can use to minimize the usage of resources?

That is currently the only relevant setting. We might at some point let people configure Burp so that it only captures in-scope items.
