The decentralized “workers” connect to the closest GeoCore via API and perform the crawling operations. The Collector works on any system and does not need a static IP address or any open ports. It is completely invisible and segregated from the frontend search service via the GeoCore. That way, Timpi can ensure that the Collector’s security is not compromised by running our software.

The user can control how much of the system resources are used, and the collector can also be paused for up to 4 hours at a time or even stopped. In addition, the user can create schedules to allow the use of more system resources at night for example. All communications are secured via TLS1.3 and all information is completely anonymized.
