Sync 2.3.8 (560) issues

Recommended Posts

Hi..  I noticed a couple of things:

Service installed on Win2008R2

#1 - the web UI does not open any explorer or anything for the actual folder.. it looks like you intended for it to do that. This has not been working for a few versions now.

#2 - I had I think 2.2 maybe? just before the name switch. But after I applied 2.3.8 it's really busy indexing the files and I left it on over 1-2 days and it was still doing it.. CPU usage very high during that time. Previously it was not like this for the same folder. The folder has about 48K files, running about 46GB.

You know.. I had just started the service again.. and it indexed in just a few minutes.

The initial time it took so long was after it finished syncing... so I wonder if that's related. I'll keep this topic updated.

And it's done. So I guess the problem is that it keeps re-indexing. Why does it need to do this? Is that a bug that wasn't there before?

It's kind of a problem because it's a large directory so it pegs the CPU for a while doing this.

This is a READ-ONLY sync folder and I have marked it so that it should overwrite all changed files. So even if there is a need to re-index, there should not be for a READ-ONLY folder because the only changes it would have to sync is something from the other sync source.

And that other source is actually offline right now. I have it configured so the source server has its sync service turn on for a few hours overnight. This way I can keep a daily snapshot of our data and have it consistent throughout the day, while also not interrupting the source server.

@coewar,

#1. There is no integration with system, when using Sync as service, thus folder cannot be opened from web ui. 

#2. Indexing has been discussed quite a lot on this forum. You need to increase "folder_rescan_interval" and find answers in this forum post
