Switch according to the text. For example, if you set the switching condition to “Text appears on the page: error”, then when the corresponding text appears on the web page, the IP will be switched once and one IP will be consumed at the same time.
For general scraping tasks, just follow the default automatic settings.
If the webpage encountered is special, the automatic setting does not work. At this time, you can set the manual setting.
