Repository Details

Fast HTTP Checker.

FHC

FHC stands for Fast HTTP Checker, it's written in Rust. Works on Linux, Windows, macOS, Android, Aarch64, ARM and possibly in your oven.

Goal

Offer the community an efficient HTTP checker tool.

Methodology

FHC try to resolve https first, if this fails then fallback to http, in that way you don't miss any active HTTP host.

Performance & speed

FHC is very resource friendly, you can use up to 1000 threads in an single core machine and this will work without any problem, the bottleneck for this tool is your network speed. By default, FHC is able to perform HTTP check for ~913 hosts per second in good network conditions (tested in an Google Cloud machine). Depending on how much host have only http (not https) and/or are alive the number of host resolved in average can be low/higher as the tool have or not to perform a double check. In our demo we used an real-world scenario performing resolution for google.com subdomains.
