Web Site Scanning Methods

The Argent Sentry Ultra provides three methods for scanning a website:

  • Traditional: Used for testing basic HTML content. This method has the lowest overhead, but may not support dynamic content, such as Javascript.
  • Dynamic HTML: Adds support for Dynamic HTML content, with slightly higher overhead.
  • Internet Explorer: Uses Internet Explorer to parse the content of a website. This method has the highest overhead, but supports client-size rendered content from websites that use AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript And XML) and Flash.

In most cases, the Dynamic HTML option works best because the resource usage is low and most websites can be handled.
