Subject [jira] Commented: (VFS-216) FTP configuration does not include option for setting socket timeout
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2009 06:02:32 GMT


Sachindra Nath commented on VFS-216:

  Is there a reason, why this patch has not yet made it to the build?
Any server side application using VFS currently may face a hung socket connection because
of this issue. 

We've been seeing this issue on one of our production servers (where a faulty router sometimes
creates this condition ). The system should however be able to recover from this error, which
it currently does not, and hangs on waiting indefinitely (till a server restart).

The already provides the ability to configure socket timeouts ( I believe since 1.5) as is indicated in the patch by Reetu.

Please suggest a timeline for this patch being rolled out in a VFS build.

> The FTP Configuration includes an option to set a timeout for the data connection, but
not for the socket timeout. This is a problem, as idle sockets can cause your download to
hang forever and never timeout.
