The Link Checker for Joomla uses an external service to crawl your website and find broken links and images on your website.
In contrast to search engine tools like the Google Search Console, which only show if an URL on your website is not reachable, it does not matter for the Link Checker if a link leads to an internal or external URL. The Link Checker will find all dead links.
The Link Checker works out of the box for every extension. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler does the heavy work and just acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages of you website once.
