    That's what I've been using up until now, but my site is bigger than the database will allow. I have't tried the SQL version, but the GSiteCrawler ran out of database space before I got to 1M pages.

    The Coffee Cup one won't crawl sites, though, so any large sites that reply on the dynamic creation of pages won't work w/ that SM generator.

    Bass, im looking for a similar one too - as of now i think the google python script (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/docs/en/sitemap-generator.html) is the best option to handle large sites. But i heard that some errors were reported running it on the live server by some webmaster here on DP - so it may be a risky one.

    Please do let me know if you found a better third party software.

    I'm now using http://gsitecrawler.com - it's been updated to allow for crawling of bigger sites.

    Best of luck.

    I have tried to use google python script before. But I just can't figure out how exactly to run the script.

    I mean, what requirements do I need to run it from my server?

    We developed our own google xml sitemap generator.

    Our xml sitemap generator can generate 700,000+ pages [tested on 2 sites].

    Let me know if you need any help.

    Yeah, I use it for all my sites pretty much - except for sites that have built-in sitemap programs.
