  1. Server to Server sync speed

    Voted up!
  2. Hi, I am unable to distribute my solution via the link because of this problem. Can I just take a copy from one of my server's hourly backups and send to users? Thanks, ft.
  3. Hi, I am using Dev version 4.00591 I have a 3-file separation solution. When I create a link to download the entire solution (including data), the link initially works as exepcted and 3 files are downloaded which contain full data.. However, when subsequent users click on the link only the Interface file is downlaoded. About to submit a bug report... Thanks, ft.
  4. Excellent, that seems to have fixed it and I am now downloading a copy. Many thanks, ft.
  5. Hi, I have been using v3 with good results for a year or so. I have just upgraded to v4 and re-built the configuration from scratch. All seemed to go well during config build. I have a multi-file solution and I am now trying to get a link to the solution using MirrorSync > Download Database > Create Link > Multiple... After admin credentials are entered a box shows "Retrieving list of databases", but then the following error is displayed: java.lang.NullPointerException I can only click OK, and I do not get a link copied to clipboard. Note that if I MirrorSync > Download Database > Create Link > Single... then the link is posted to clipboard in good order. Please can anyone advise? Thanks, ft. PS> have submitted error logs to 360works but hoping someone in the community can help since it is the weekend!
  6. Please ignore. I rebooted server and it came good. I had also tweaked the new extended privs enabled under FM16 for the account, but that change by itself did not make a difference. ft.
  7. Can you provide some more info please? I am getting this error when using the admin account for Mirrorsync's "Databse Username" and "Database Password". I am upgrading from v3, and have tried in v4 with both an import of the previous settings and from scratch. Thanks, ft.
  8. Unexpected deletions

    Hi, Sorry to bug you but just wondering if I can restart sync safely? Thanks, ft.
  9. Unexpected deletions

    Thanks - I submitted the log file earlier today. Do you think I am OK to restart MirrorSync (with the recovered database) at this point? Thanks, ft.
  10. Unexpected deletions

    Hi, One of my users synced this morning and the sync for some reason removed 20,000 records that should not have been deleted. I'm sure is a HUMAN PROBLEM - NOT MIRRORSYNC. This is a very remote user who uses the system rarely. I am trying to stop the bleeding before looking for the cause, but I am going to guess he did something like sync an archived, very old version of our solution. I've been able to recover the database from backup. I have disabled syncing for now. The 'problem user' will not sync again. Is there something I should now do to repair the data to bring the recovered/restored database in line with MirrorSync? Is now the time to use either 'Repair SyncData' or 'Reset Sync Data'? Many thanks, ft.
  11. great, thanks... that's what i needed to know. ft.
  12. Lee, Please stop nagging me. It's not my fault that there was a loss of information at the site. Am I breaking terms of service or any other forum rules by not updating the info that was lost? ft..
  13. Hi, Using Mirrorsync 3. A new field is needed. It will be created on the server and added to the appropriate sync layout, new Mirrorsync script will be created, etc. There will be a lag time - a couple weeks - while existing users continue to use - and sync - their un-modified remote databases before they can download a new copy from the server. It's been a while since I made such a change... please remind me... how does this change manifest for those users who have not yet got the updated version while they continue to sync with older databases? Do they see an error on each sync saying the new field is unavailable? Just trying to manage user expectations :) Thanks, ft.
  14. Allocation of RAM

    I noticed that the server you used to do benchmarking had 60GB of RAM. Did you need to do anything to FileMaker or MirrorSync to optimize the performance with that much RAM? Thanks, ft.
  15. Allocation of RAM

    Hi, I have 16GB RAM on my OSX FileMaker server which also runs MirrorSync. I have noticed in Activity Monitor that the RAM usage is rarely over 10 GB. If I allocate the additional 5-or-6 GB to MirrorSync by modifying the modify the setenv file will it make my syncs faster? Thanks, ft.
