We have a application that responds with status code 403 forbidden after every 5 continuous HTTP request. It keeps sending this code for 5-7 minutes even for valid requests. Due to certain dependencies this functionality has been implemented that cannot be changed. Now we have to run arachni scan on the application. To make successful scan it needs to be run at the 1 packet/second. Practically it will take lot of time. Is there any way we can rescan the pages that responded with 403 forbidden once application is back to normal state after every 5-7 minutes.

    I'm sorry that's not possible, I'd suggest setting up a test version of the webapp without these restrictions on an internal host and scanning that one.
