Fetch a given sitemap and retrieve all URLs in it.

Project description


Retrieves all URLs of a given sitemap.xml URL and fetches each page one by one. Useful for (load) testing the entire site for error responses.

Sample Output

Note: The default concurrency limit is 5, so five URLs are fetched at once. Depending on your server's worker count, this might already be enough to DoS it. Try --concurrency-limit=2 and increase if you feel comfortable.

Usage: fetch-sitemap [-h] [--basic-auth BASIC_AUTH] [-l LIMIT] [-c CONCURRENCY_LIMIT]
                     [-t REQUEST_TIMEOUT] [--random] [--report-path REPORT_PATH]
                     [-o OUTPUT] [-v]
