Fetch Interval Changes

May 10, 2023 — Jonathon Rossi

Feedrabbit has always tried to fetch feeds every 60 minutes for all users, however over the last 6 months queues have continued to grow and Feedrabbit has not been achieving that for any users. From today, the fetch interval for feeds used only by free accounts will change to a 3 hour interval, including feeds where the web site designated a quicker poll rate or time-to-live field (often common with status page and alert feeds). Similiarly feeds that haven't updated for more than 7 days will now also only be fetched every 6 hours. Premium accounts have not changed and should see quicker feed fetching.

Feedrabbit will now display the Fetch Interval on the subscription page indicating this change.
