Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplication

Hi,

I'm trying to upload a 3 GB ISO-File to my filr-appliance for sharing with other users. I'm waiting now for more than one hour and it's on 28%. I'm not sure, if it will ever finish the upload...

What could be wrong? I have a small deployment with (more or less) the default settings.

Thanks Philipp

Re: Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplication


Hi Philip,



Would it be possible to provide a bit more details?

- What are the RAM and JVM values?

- How are the disks on the level of free space (df -h) and free inodes (df -ih)?



Make sure that the RAM and free diskspace (at least 2 times the uploading file's size when the end location is in a net folder 3 times in case of "Ad-Hoc" personal data).

It might make sense to increase the RAM and JVM to 12GB RAM and 8GB JVM or even 16GB/12GB.



Kind Regards,

Bart.

One more thing to check: the upload file size limitation is set to a higher value than the file being uploaded.

Forgot to write: I'm uploading over my LAN (1Gb), not over a slow WAN-connection...

Re: Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplicatio

Hi Bart,

I have 8GB RAM, 4 vCPUs

JVM Min Heap Size: 6g
JVM Max Heap Size: 6g

filr:~ # df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 20G 5.4G 14G 29% /
udev 4.0G 136K 4.0G 1% /dev
tmpfs 4.0G 0 4.0G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 20G 5.4G 14G 29% /
/dev/sdb1 20G 5.6G 14G 30% /vastorage
/dev/sdc1 20G 1.6G 18G 9% /var

filr:~ # df -ih
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
rootfs 1.3M 143K 1.2M 12% /
udev 0 0 0 - /dev
tmpfs 1001K 1 1001K 1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1 1.3M 143K 1.2M 12% /
/dev/sdb1 1.3M 5.5K 1.3M 1% /vastorage
/dev/sdc1 1.3M 1.2K 1.3M 1% /var


I'm not using net folders.

So increasing RAM and JVM is the next step, I guess?

Thanks

Philipp,

I see in the docs that 2 GB is the default size limit:
https://www.novell.com/documentation/filr-3/filr-admin/data/t43mnyk1muz9.html
Makes me wonder if "no limitation set" actually defaults to 2 GB. Try
setting the limit to something higher, such as 4 GB and see if it
makes a difference.

I imagine Bart can let us know whether my assumption is true or not.

Re: Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplication


Hi Philipp



Indeed, I would increase the RAM and JVM size.



You could also check the appserver.log file for any references to the file you were uploading.

That might give a clue.



Kind Regards,

Bart

Re: Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplication


Ken, Philipp,



When there is no limit set, the limitation is not on software level.

In this case I presume the limitation is within the configuration limitations.



The docs appears to be somewhat confusing,



Kind Regards,

Bart.

Re: Filr 3.2.1: slow uploading large file with webapplicatio

Hi Bart,

I followed your suggestions:

16GB RAM for the server
12GB JVM heap size (min and max)

5GB upload-limit

-> the upload was faster, but not as fast as expected (1 hour I guess; I had to leave the office before the upload was finished)

So I tried a sftp-upload to the vastorage of the filr-server today and it needed 1:30 minutes for that!

The other direction works much better: downloading that file (I have to correct: it has 3.6GB) with the directlink from firl takes approx 2 minutes.

Kind regards,
Philipp
