Some environments require additional configuration to transfer specific file types, ensure network connectivity, and optimize file transfers for your organization.
Click the Advanced tab to view and edit additional configuration options when adding or editing a job.
Note: Advanced options can vary from job type to job type. Some configuration options may not be available for certain jobs.
Include File Patterns includes all file names/types by default. You can configure specific file patterns and extensions to include specific file types in your transfer. Separate multiple patterns with commas.
Specifying to Exclude Subdirectories will exclude certain subdirectories from your transfer.
The File Readiness Check Type determines how the job will check if files are ready for transfer:
The Readiness Check Delay sets the pause, in seconds, between the two phases of MD5 Hash, Consecutive Seek, or Date/Time and Size file readiness checks. The default delay is 10 seconds.
When choosing to Stream Growing Files, this is the time that must pass without file changes for the file to be declared complete.
You can specify Source Deletions After Successful Transfer to remove files from the source after a successful transfer.
In ObjectDownloader, you can select Directory Mapping Options.
Specify whether to Remove Expired Files/Directories on Target and set the Expiration Period, which is 30 days by default.
Configure Simultaneous Transfer Streams to optimize transfer performance. By default, Object Mover uses 10 transfer streams.
Enabling Use UDP Control Channel instead of TCP is recommended for configurations where connections must pass through a firewall that blocks TCP traffic.
Note: When Use UDP Control Channel is set to Yes, file transfers automatically use UDP WAN acceleration, which may override the Use WAN Accelerator setting.
Select whether to Use WAN Accelerator. This setting uses all available bandwidth up to the user-specified bandwidth maximum. Use this option on high-latency, high-bandwidth networks where throughput is a top priority. If the throughput is less than 57200 Bps, the transfer will switch to TCP.
Note: WAN Acceleration is enabled by default.
Setting the WAN Accelerator Aggressiveness configures the job's sensitivity to other network traffic. The higher the level of aggressiveness, the less the job accommodates other network traffic. The WAN Accelerator Aggressiveness setting also specifies how aggressively the transfer attempts to reclaim bandwidth after packet loss.
There are three levels of aggressiveness:
High - When 3% packet loss is detected, the transfer rate slows to 94% of the current transfer rate. The transfer waits 20ms before trying to increment the transfer rate by 5%.
Medium - When 2% packet loss is detected, the transfer rate slows down to 93% of the current transfer rate. The transfer waits 40ms before trying to increase the transfer rate by 4%.
Low - When 1% packet loss is detected, the transfer rate slows to 91% of the current transfer rate. The transfer waits 80ms before trying to increment the transfer rate by 3%.
Configuring a job to use limited bandwidth can improve network performance for other activities.
Bandwidth Ceiling configures the maximum throttle rate for the transfer. Typically, this is the maximum speed of the network. Enter 0 to enable auto-detection for the best bandwidth rate.
Bandwidth Floor configures the minimum rate at which data should be sent. Enter 0 to enable auto-detection for the best bandwidth rate.
Note: If WAN Accelerator Aggressiveness is set to Medium or Low, the rate specified here will be used.
Set Bandwidth Throttle by Time of Day configures bandwidth usage to reduce network usage during periods of higher demand. Click + to add additional time parameters, or click x to remove them.
Note: Once a job has started, all bandwidth throttles are applied with accounting for Daylight Savings Time (DST). If DST changes while the job is running, bandwidth time of day changes may be off by an hour.
Jobs can include a set Encryption Level. The default is No Encryption – unsigned.
Note: Mutual authentication is always used, regardless of the encryption level specified. Encryption is done in-stream and not on disk prior to sending.
Set a Delivery Mode for transferring files if required:
Select the Log Detail Level based on your requirements:
Select additional time parameters such as time zone and start/end times, choose whether a transfer should be interrupted upon failure, and set the job's queuing priority based on other jobs.
