Information about scanning times

Q: How much time does it take for a scan to complete?

A: A scan can take several hours. Issues that can affect the scan length are:

  • Domain size

  • Connection speed

  • Website structure.

See the scan progress on the Domain Dashboard in Monsido, and there is a progress bar over the On-Demand Scan button. Click on it to see the current status of the scan, including which link the scan is currently on:

Note: If you do not see a link but the message:



  • Any other questionable status

If a scan is slow because the amount of data is extremely large, try to limit the number of pages scanned with path constraints or link exclusions. See the user guide article:

Contact the Monsido support team at or via the Monsido chat and help features inside the application.
