    Large folder never completes sync

    Hello All,

    I have iFolder running now for a few weeks and i'm trying to understand it's behavior with synchronizing.
    I have several iFolders set up and working just fine. Except for 1 iFolder, which is a grand total of 27 GB. When i look at whats happening on my iFolder server (VMware) i see the disk usage going up before it actually starts to sync (see this with all iFolders). However, on the large folder this never gets completed, and the file sync doesn't start. It feels like its stuck in a loop of indexing/initiating and then hitting some timeout and starting all over.

    Can someone enlighten me on the inner workings and tell me what is going on and how i can fine tune this?

    Kind regards,

    Dennis

    Hi
    So is the folder it's syncing always getting files added, or you not
    just giving it time to finish syncing and stopping the process?

    What do you see in the logs down in /var/simias/data/simias/log

    Re: Large folder never completes sync

    Which version are you on, earlier version had some issue with syncing file greater than 2gb (this file alone would not sync), latest patches should not have this issue.

    As mentioned below, checking log file helps, go over the logs on both server and client.

    Re: Large folder never completes sync

    Thanks for your involvement.

    Firstly, not sure which versions i'm exactly running. Think i'm pretty bleeding edge, but let me know how to verify then i'll post the output.

    I managed to figure out that the iFolder in question has id "68f3d786-08d6-40a7-9d94-2a7686d1665e". Below is some output that is in the log file. I started syncing from scratch this evening and on LAN in stead of wireless. I noticed disk usage being high from about 11.33-11.42 and 11.56-0.03. I don;t have the graph data of before those times, so no data to correlate with older logging. Network activity is pretty much flat lining during these hard disk peeks, so it looks something local to the server. I imagine it is looking for changes server side.

    Log: (sudo cat Simias.access.log | grep 68f3d786-08d6-40a7-9d94-2a7686d1665e)
    I snatched just over last hour because of max forum mesage, where you can see it stopped actually syncing data around 11.

    Hi
    So is the folder it's syncing always getting files added, or you not
    just giving it time to finish syncing and stopping the process?

    What do you see in the logs down in /var/simias/data/simias/log

    Re: Large folder never completes sync

    Ok, so rootfs.img was over 3GB. Since it was an old demo vm, I simply trashed it to see for now if it helps.
    So far it seems to. Its syncing again, but i'll keep you posted. If i know what my version is, i can see if it relates to the 2GB limit you've been talking about and patch my machine.

    Re: Large folder never completes sync

    You could just hit Help-> About to get the actual version, if its not the current ( 3.8.4.1) you may want to upgrade to it.

    Could you check the Simias.log from both client and server. This would give you the details of failure.

    Thanks for your involvement.

    Firstly, not sure which versions i'm exactly running. Think i'm pretty
    bleeding edge, but let me know how to verify then i'll post the output.

    I managed to figure out that the iFolder in question has id
    "68f3d786-08d6-40a7-9d94-2a7686d1665e". Below is some output that is in
    the log file. I started syncing from scratch this evening and on LAN in
    stead of wireless. I noticed disk usage being high from about
    11.33-11.42 and 11.56-0.03. I don;t have the graph data of before those
    times, so no data to correlate with older logging. Network activity is
    pretty much flat lining during these hard disk peeks, so it looks
    something local to the server. I imagine it is looking for changes
    server side.

    Log: (sudo cat Simias.access.log | grep
    68f3d786-08d6-40a7-9d94-2a7686d1665e)
    I snatched just over last hour because of max forum mesage, where you
    can see it stopped actually syncing data around 11.

    Re: Large folder never completes sync

    My client is 3.8.0.0. This is the default download on the Kablink website.
    Where can i find 3.8.4.1? Do i only have to upgrade client side?

    [QUOTE=hegdegg;2107258]You could just hit Help-> About to get the actual version, if its not the current ( 3.8.4.1) you may want to upgrade to it.

    Could you check the Simias.log from both client and server. This would give you the details of failure.

    Version 3.8.4.x is included with Open Enterprise Server 2 (Support Pack 3).

    Theoretically the version available via the Kablink/iFolder community
    site should be kept in sync with OES2 but that doesn't seem to be
    happening. Having previously asked Novell I'll ask again.
