FileUtils.tar() method upgrade #3738

ribeiromauro ·

Dear Robin,

Will it be possible to make an overload signature for methods FileUtils.tar() and FileUtils.untar() - and maybe their zip/unzip equivalents - where plugin developers could define the buffer size of the internal Buffered Input/Output Streams ?

Thanks and Best Regards,
Mauro Ribeiro

Any reason you want to change the default buffer size?

Hi there!

In the network where my QB server and agents are, there is also a security program that scans I/O for every filesystem read/write calls, thus, with default 64k buffer, a big tar file (4Gb) will generate many call to I/O read/write.

I cannot resize this with a external Buffered Stream because it would fallback under the internal buffered size.

My goal is to test if, with a 1MB to 4MB buffer size, I could have less I/O reads/writes, and equivalent less time to create my tar file.

In a Linux box (without security program running): 1m45s to create a 4GB tar file
In a Windows7 box (with security program enabled): 56m21s to create a 4GB tar file

Anyways, if that wouldnt be possible, its ok. I can also try to set it up in other ways so Windows Machines never execute that step.

Best Regards

We'd rather to keep it as is, as I/O scanning always hurt the performance when large files are operated not only for the tar/untar operation. And we normally suggest to disable that for a busy QB system.
