Subject Deployment takes forever with many files
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2009 10:13:19 GMT
Hello list,

I´ve been working with Geronimo for some days now and I have a question 
regarding the deployment process, especially about what happens behind 
the scenes.

I am working on a project that has a lot of content (mainly JSPs but 
also images, pdfs and so on). For the development environment this 
content is reduced to a minimum, that is something around 800MB. The 
live system has more data because customers can upload images and even 
small videos. This data is placed on a file server and mounted via NFS 
on the development machines, where the content is linked from the 
docroot using symbolic links.

If I start this scenario with Tomcat, the application start takes about 
3,5 minutes (really application startup, no copying of data). If I try 
the same with Geronimo startup takes about 30 minutes with the system 
almost being idle and enormous network traffic. If I copy all the static 
content to my system and start geronimo it takes about 5 minutes.

So, my question is, what does Geronimo do in the background that causes 
this startup time if the content is on a network share and can I prevent 
this from happening?

Thanks in advance for every help!


Geronimo 2.1.4
System: Linux CentOS 5
