High volume - FTP sender adpater



We are migrating our PI application and our server will be down for 2-3 days. However out third party is working & will accumulate the file for us.

Once the PI is live, we are seeing at least 15-20,000 XML files ( each containing good amount of data) coming via PI FTP adapter route.

Since this already live system, we will not be allowed to change any major setting change.

How should we handle this high volume coming into PI via File adapter, since one the channel is opened all 15K files would be rushing to PI

Also how does the file adapter behaves, if the lets say in poll time of 60 sec, it is not able to finish the job.

Would it fail, asking to reprocess or it would get delayed and wait till the batch finishes before starting new Polling.

I am thinking of increasing the polling interval but still not clear what will happen in the first polling.

Thanks & please advice.
