Hi Tasos.

I am getting utilities#exception_ while running a scan and after some time scan got stopped without generating any report .

In the first 2 hrs scan was running properly then start giving utilities#exception_ and ultimately stop after sometime. Not able to understand the reason . can you help to figure it out and fix the issue.

    Sounds like you ran out of memory, what resources does the machine have?

    How much of that RAM is free?
    Also, are you using the latest nightlies?

    Minimum system requirements are 2GB of free RAM for Arachni, although that's a ballpark figure.
    It's meant to cover most cases, sometimes Arachni may need more.

    Your best bet would be increasing the memory of the VM and see if the issue goes away.

    nightlies hang during the scan and then it need to abort because it is not scanning further. time keep on moving but no further page scan and no vulnerabilities.

    i have 8 GB ram with 250 GB HDD 4 GB free. is it a bug ?
