DropBox "Conflicted Copy" Handling -. :: GSA Forum ::.

Hello, Sven, long-term user, I was not sure which section to include this suggestion, it would fit in the identifier of the Platform or in the SER, the solution could apply to both.

Sometimes I have up to 5 instances of SER and 3 instances of platform identifier that run on several servers. I use DropBox to synchronize my files from one server to another as they are processed. I know that I am one of the many who use this basic but highly effective configuration.

No matter how fast your servers are, due to the latency of DropBox, the "conflicting copies" are created to scale in files of more than 1 mb (I think it depends on your configuration) and this can end up making a big mess, for example, my identified folder has almost 6000 files because of this.

Request:

Platform identifier feature

Deduza automated "hands-free" and combination of files in conflict for:

When noticing the files in conflict:

Example————————————————
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (copy in conflict of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-04 (1)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (conflicted copy of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-04 (2)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (swedishpowerhouse conflict copy 2018-06-04 (3)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (copy in conflict of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-04 (4)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (swedishpowerhouse conflict copy 2018-06-04) .txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (copy in conflict of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-08 (1)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (copy in conflict of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-08 (2)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (conflicted copy of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-08 (3)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (copy in conflict of swedishpowerhouse 2018-06-08 (5)). txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet (swedishpowerhouse conflict copy 2018-06-08) .txt
sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet.txt
/Example———————————————–

All documents are automatically deducted and combined in the original file:

sitelist_Article-AltoCMS-LiveStreet.txt

and then finally the copies now void in conflict eliminated.

Request:

Character of SER

I do not care what program handles this process, but I wanted to point out how HREFER managers handle deduplication. In HREFER, you have the option to deduct the files analyzed at startup.

Maybe if SER performed the simple duplicate / combination / deletion removal as described in the platform identifier request at startup, this would solve the problem and help keep the GSA directories all simplified.

At this moment I have quick and dirty solutions through PI, but I still have to stop all my servers once a week to order this, since it kills Dropbox.

Continue the excellent work, it would be great if you could implement the above but in no way a decisive factor :)
