Msecs to wait before modification check

Hi All,

We have a scenario where a job writes files in a folder from where PI picks it up. We are facing issue that we are picking up incomplete files. Tried changing frequency but on occasions it kept picking up incomplete files. We are using File Adapter and NFS option.

Can the Msecs to wait before modification check fix this. If so what should be the ideal value? Should it be 0 so that every moment it will check for any changes in size or anything to that file?

Thanks,

Shaibayan

    if you are using usb 2.0 it will write at 25 -35 MB/sec.

    Else on hard disks it varies from 25 - 300 MB/sec. It will have higher value for SSD disk.

    So if your file size is about 50MB then on average you can give 5 -10 secs.

    But again i would say it will totally depend on your drive type and file size.
