Transferring large files (>10GB) between servers

#1 Postby filekrypt » May 26, 2013 7:30 am

Hi folks,

I'm trying to transfer files between servers, which works fine for files under 10GB. But, if they are larger, the transfer will just hang, with no error message.

I've monitored the server network activity with iftop, and after a while, the transfer will just stop. At the same time, the browser will stop "spinning"...

So it seems like there's some kind of maximum execution time on the file moving script?

@filekrypt even if the browser stop spinning , that doesn't mean the file transfer stopped .
You can try this example , start a file transfer (just 1 ) and let it go on . As soon the browser stop spinning then log into your servers and check for the following with those commands:
On the server sending the file type: ps aux | grep api.cgi
On server receiving the file type: ps aux | grep uu.cgi

If you get only 1 line response , that is your own query .
However if you get 2 lines and the other looks like :
/usr/bin/perl /var/www/something/api.cgi or uu.cgi
then the transfer continue to run in the background and you just have to wait to finish . As soon it does it will update the file server id and delete the old one .
