fileMaxSize

Indicates the maximal size of a file that can be uploaded to Efficy – or to be more precise, to Efficy’s file server.

By default, files of up to 4 GB can be uploaded to Efficy.

Warning 1: 4 GB is the maximal file size you can configure in IIS.

Warning 2: by default, IIS does not support files bigger than 30 MB. In other words, you have to configure IIS (in the section Request Filtering) to support files over 30 MB at all! This step is a must to prevent socket errors etc. In ISS, enter a value equal to or higher than the value you enter here for the parameter FileMaxSize.

how to support “big” files with IIS

This relates to files that can be uploaded to Efficy – or to be more precise, to Efficy’s file server that can be identical to or different from the Efficy web server.

Preliminary steps

specify Efficy’s file server with the parameter URL (when the Efficy server also functions as file server) or FileURL (when a dedicated file server is used).

indicate with the parameter FileRepository which folder holds the file repository. (The files are stored in subfolders; each subfolder holds up to 1,000 “big” files.)

indicate the temporary folder where the uploads happen before the files are moved to the file repository with the parameter FileTempUpload.

Necessary complementary steps

set the minimum size of files considered as big (with the parameter FileMinSize).

adapt IIS to the maximal size of “big” files.

Complementary step: configure the related clean-up service Large File Maintenance.

Efficy services and processes: Large File Maintenance service

Configuring IIS to support “big” files

By default, IIS does not support files bigger than 30 MB. In other words, you have to configure IIS (in the section Request Filtering) to support files over 30 MB at all! This step is a must to prevent socket errors etc.

Select the Efficy web site in the Connections panel and click the icon Request Filtering in the Features view of the IIS Manager.

The Request Filtering parameters display.

Click the hyperlink Edit Features Settings in the Actions panel.

dsgn_IIS-request-filtering-edit-features-settings

Increase the default value (30 MB) of the parameter Maximum Allowed Content Length. Enter a value equal to or higher than the value you enter here for the parameter FileMaxSize.

To increase the supported file size to 4 GB, enter the proper value in bytes: 4,000,000,000. Or 4,294,967,295 bytes if you want to be precise.
