@MusikAnimal is this coming from the XTools project or the old tools?

Sorry, but this is way too much work for a small added benefit. The bot doesn't even access the snapshot, nor does it have the structure to save this meta-data.

You know I have a container web script that can run checks on an array of links. I can set it up.
What is reflinks?

Start a discussion on Wiktionary and get a consensus to invite IABot. Please link me to the discussion when it has finished.

I certainly oppose relying on archive.is. It has proven to be notoriously unreliable. In 40% of the cases you will get a bad archive snapshot from them.

archive.org domains have been whitelist and associated archive snapshots have been deleted as they are pointless.

This is now implemented in v2.0.

It already does.
I will also implement support for tideways.

Now part of v1.6.1
Found the problem at last. This is fixed in v1.6.1. I'll do a DB sweep with a script to fix these entries.
Still investigating the problem, for some reason, this is only happening to random links.

Heh. I have Herald set loosely in case something may need my attention. With that being said if WebLinkChecker checks links if they are dead, then https://github.com/wikimedia/DeadlinkChecker may be useful. I’m actively maintaining it and is very reliable. Just a suggestion. It supports HTTP/S, FTP, MMS, and RTSP
IABot's DB has these URLs listed as alive, and the URL's are being parsed correctly as of v1.6. I'll chalk this up to a beta bug that's been fixed in the official release.
I cannot replicate this problem in the latest version.

Well there exists a fork of xhprof designed for PHP7.
Some URLs may not get caught for various reasons. You can look up those URLs in IABot's DB and change their status and archive data manually if you need to.
Is this an issue that needs fixing necessarily? It doesn't seem like a too serious of an issue. Internally it destroys and rebuilds the citation from the ground up, so from the bot's perspective it does add an archive, so fixing this is no easy matter.
