    Limits of File Repository

    Hi folks,

     

    I am using File Repository as a buffer to store payloads received through REST Call and after that I am processing those payloads sequentially in every 5 second.
    Before going ahead I want to confirm size limitation of File Repository. Is there any fail point on using File Repository as buffer.
    Any suggessions would be appreciated.

     

    Thanks,

    Meenakshi

        I don't believe FileRepository size has a limitation. It resides on the Server's drive. So that would be the main limitation.

        If you are using it to stage files for processing, I do recommend SSDs and a way to purge the files and monitor disk space.

            Thanks Pai Chung,

             

            I do recommend SSDs and a way to purge the files and monitor disk space. - We have cloud instance hosted by ptc, Can you please explain how can I monitor disk space and use SSDs or ptc will need to maintain this?


            Also, With each processing I am deleting files from file repository. I am accessing files through timer with the interval of 5 second.

                I do believe Cloud Services utilizes SSDs, I recommend you check with them.

                Is there a way to know the Storage capacity left ... I'm not sure. I would talk to Cloud Services about this as well to see what options exist for this.
