Modification check in File Adapter



We use the Msecs to wait before Modification Check to ensure that our files are complete before PI picks them up to process them.

The files are created by a SAP standard Program, that opens the file on the AL11 Server, writes to it and then completes. The processing can take up to 15 mins and we create up to about 20 files.

The modification check is then set to be 15 mins to ensure the file is completely written. However in PI this modiciation is then set to all the files. For example if I have 3 files to be picked up, PI waits 15 mins , processes first file...waits 15 mins...processes 2nd file and then waits 15 mins again and processes the last file.

Is there any way to get this to work so If it sees 3 files, it waits 15 mins and then does all 3 ??

Or how else can PI tell if it is picking up a file off the ECC server that ist is complete ?

Another option is to start renaming the files in a batch job that checks if they are complete but we would rather not do that.
