Hi Experts,

I need to configured the sender and reciever FTP Adapter to Archive a 37 MB text file within a FTP server.

It is taking 20 min to archive the file.

does this requirement requires any change in Parameter configuration(like transfer mode, channel availabilty planning( i am using daily with duration 30 min) to make it fast.

Thank you,

MK

    Hi,

    You are processing a file Size of 37MB.

    it is very difficult to process via XI.

    Xi can handle the file size < 8MB only,

    provided we have high-configuration hardware.

    Could you please let me know, what is the polling interval used for this interface.

    Regards

    mahesh.

      Hi Experts,

      To archive huge files using FTP adapter, i looked at the Michal weblog to zip the file :

      /people/michal.krawczyk2/blog/2007/02/08/xipi-command-line-sample-functions

      please explain how and where to write the below file

      @ECHO OFF

      7za.exe a -tzip D:\file_cat\%2.zip %1

      del %1

      and also explain

      Zipping a file can also be done with jar.

      For example,

      jar cvf m.zip m.txt

      will zip m.txt into m.zip

      No need for any other software as jar is highly likely to be on the XI/PI server...

      and how to implement it in the FTP adapter configuration.

      Thanks in Advance.

    Even if you break the file and read the processing time might be less but will not make significant difference.

    The file size is hue this will take time......

    Hi,

    As you mentioned about he size of the source file is 37MB, it seems high volume message. So it is very much possible that File adapter will take time to archive it from one dir to another.

    Also did you checked the incoming message in SXMB_MONI. I think you will also face problem to see this much big message in MONI. But this is only for monitoring purpose.

    Thanks

    use this as an operationg system command.

    Just set the Solaris or the MSDOs Zip command it should work.

    Let me know if this soved your problem.

    Regards
