Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-544) Should FileUtils.copyFile be flushed and synced before comparing file sizes?
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2017 00:07:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-544?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16075668#comment-16075668
] 

Sean Poulter commented on IO-544:
---------------------------------

We have a scheduled task that runs every 4 hours. It logs locally in a tempfile.
When the work is done we copy the tempfile to the network drive using {{FileUtils.copyFile(local,
remote, true);}}.

Let me know if there's anything else I can provide to help.

> I've been struggling to troubleshoot intermittent {{IOExceptions}} thrown from {{FileUtils.doCopyFile}}
when copying 2-4KB files from a local temporary file to a network drive. Despite the error,
the file appears on the network drive when I check. Should the output channel/buffer be forced/flushed
before closing, and synchronized before comparing the file lengths? It's a rather intermittent
issue on a relatively high throughput PC so I'd expect there to be more IO latency than normal.
