Maybe it's a stupid question, but what as motived your choice for xmlrpc for the grid instead of a modern queuing solution like resque or sidekiq ?

    Erm, I don't use XMLRPC and there's no queuing.
    I'd like to give you a more detailed answer but I'm not sure which parts interest you so if you'd like to ask about how a specific piece of Arachni is designed I'd be glad to give you an overview.

    Argh sorry for my mistake, I wrote without double check my thought.

    I meant why did you choose distributed components with RPC instead of a queing system ?

    Ah cool, this should answer your question:

    Short answer, you can go from on-demand to any other (more complex/intricate) model, but it'd be harder to go from a complex model to on-demand.
    Plus, the ability to control scanner instances over RPC allows for the development of any sort of user interface and integration with 3rd party systems (and allows for cool stuff like this).

    If you've got more questions feel free to re-open. :)
