+        The --urls option selects the kind of URLs to be probed. Meanings are:
+          'scan' - probes those URLs that would be used in scanning (rsync, 
+                   and FTP/HTTP only as fallback). This is fastest, and 
+                   suitable for quick probing.
+          'http' - probes the base URLs that the clients get to see (those 
+                   used in redirection). Gives the most realistic view.
+          'all'  - probes all and every URL registered for a host. The most
+                   thourough method, which can be useful to discover permission
+                   problems on mirrors, serving staged content already where
+                   they shouldn't.
+        Proxy settings via environmental variables are ignored.
