Red Hat - VSFTP Server - release of large files to the file store
Running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4.
XML files are supplied to the application on a regular basis via FTP - using VSFTP server.
These files are processed using a hibernate daemon that runs every 10 mins - this uploads the files to a database.
Normally everything is fine.
However, one client has very large XML files - and the daemon upload process accesses the files before the transfer has completed - and of course the process complains that the XML is corrupt.
Normally everything is fine - so I think there is a size at which the file is flushed to the File store and becomes visible to the operating system. Perhaps there are buffers involved which need to be resized here?
This view is underlined since the 'smaller' files never have a problem - so there must be times when the uploader is running when they are being transfered, but they are not accessed prior to the transfer finishing.
Hope this is clear enough?
