This binary provider is not independent and will always be used as part of a template chain for a remote filestore that may exhibit upload latency (for example S3 or GCS).
Eventual Binary Provider Configuration
To overcome potential latency, files are first written to a folder called “eventual” under the baseDataDir in local storage, and then later uploaded to persistent storage with the cloud provider. The default location of the
eventual folder is under the $JFROG_HOME/artifactory
/data/artifactory folder and is not configurable. You need to make sure that Artifactory has full read/write permissions to this location.
There are three additional folders under the
_pre: part of the persistence mechanism that ensures all files are valid before being uploaded to the remote filestore
_add: handles upload of files to the remote filestore
_delete: handles deletion of files from the remote filestore
Eventual Binary Provider Example
The following example shows a configuration that uses S3 for persistent storage after temporary storage with an eventual binary provider. The eventual provider configures 10 parallel threads for uploading and a lock timeout of 180 seconds.
<config version="2"> <chain template="s3-storage-v3"/> <!-- The S3 binary provider configuration --> <provider id="s3-storage-v3" type="s3-storage-v3"> <endpoint>s3.amazonaws.com</endpoint> <bucketName>bucketName</bucketName> <path>pathPrefix</path> <region>s3Region</region> <identity>yourIdentity</identity> <credential>yourCredentials</credential> </provider> <!-- The eventual provider configuration --> <provider id="eventual" type="eventual"> <numberOfThreads>10</numberOfThreads> <timeout>180000</timeout> </provider> </config>
The maximum amount of time a file may be locked while it is being written to or deleted from the filesystem.
Default: 5000 ms
The interval between which the provider scans the “eventual” folder to check for files that should be uploaded to persistent storage.
The number of parallel threads that should be allocated for uploading files to persistent storage.
