Estimating time remaining

Johan | Last updated: Jul 22, 2019 11:52PM UTC

The scanner keeps getting stuck on "Estimating time remaining". .. please fix or tell me how to force the scan to start.

Johan, is the number of requests increasing? If so, the scan is working. It might be that the crawl phase is taking a long time. How long have you waited?

I have the same issue. I basically have no idea when it will finish, should I leave it for 24 hours or should I stop it?

Hi Dima, I have replied directly to your email query.

Same problem here. Why is this happening? 18,000 requests, need to stop crawling and start running actual tests.

Hi There, I am Using trial version of BurpSuite Professional. Getting 5 hours estimates time while crawling the website. Its more than that and now it shows 19 hours. Please suggest what should be done here.

Hi Ruchika In your scan details request counter, can you see if the request counter is still increasing, or if it has stopped? When scanning, there are two different phases, crawling, and auditing. Does your scan go from "Crawling, 5 hours remaining" to "Auditing, 19 hours remaining"?

Yes Hanna. That's correct. However, still I feel the time is too much. Will it be possible for you to give me the list of reasons that I can rule out from the test environment and try. Thanks, Ruchika

The crawl was started at 15:00 on one day and went upto 6:50 AM next day. Is it usual behaviour?

Hi Have you had a look at your crawl and audit configurations? You can change the depth, speed, and accuracy of the crawl and audit. There are also a lot of other configurable options available. You can find out more in our documentation: - https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/scanning/crawl-options - https://portswigger.net/burp/documentation/desktop/scanning/audit-options
