Daily Log for #alfresco

2018-04-27 07:28:36 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone

2018-04-27 08:24:07 GMT <Loftux> If you delete a folder with a large number of nodes/files, does it only rewrite store in db for the parent (the folder) or does it have to do it for each individual file?

2018-04-27 08:28:05 GMT <angelborroy> Loftux I include my recap here: https://angelborroy.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/alfresco-what-happens-when-a-folder-is-moved/

2018-04-27 08:28:06 GMT <alfbot> Title: Alfresco: what happens when a folder is moved | Programming and So (at angelborroy.wordpress.com)

2018-04-27 08:28:18 GMT <angelborroy> It doesn’t include DB, but can be helpful

2018-04-27 08:29:38 GMT <Loftux> angelborroy: Thanks, it will help

2018-04-27 08:48:25 GMT <Tichodroma> The Alfresco cloud makes versions available only using the CMIS/XML binding. Are comments of versions available using this API?

2018-04-27 08:48:42 GMT <yreg> Loftux, it will recursively crawl the hierarchy deleting all elements

2018-04-27 08:49:45 GMT <yreg> And it often exhausts the transactional caches pretty fast .... Resulting in a major performance decrease for the thread in question

2018-04-27 08:50:01 GMT <yreg> I have seen such operations take hours...

2018-04-27 08:50:22 GMT <MorganP> yes it does it for all

2018-04-27 08:50:36 GMT <MorganP> it has to

2018-04-27 08:52:04 GMT <yreg> Loftux, rules and behaviours add an extra heat to that boilerplate, so temporarily disabling them can actually be helpful

2018-04-27 09:03:23 GMT <Loftux> yreg: Thanks for the feedback

2018-04-27 09:20:51 GMT <fwu> hi all

2018-04-27 10:15:44 GMT <AFaust> yreg, Loftux: When the transactional cache is exhausted, it does not just have a major performance impact on the thread, but the entire system. When the transaction commits, the shared cache will be cleared, meaning every request thereafter has to refetch data previously cached, even if it was not affected by that transaction

2018-04-27 10:16:49 GMT <yreg> AFaust, that impact is quite small compared to the actual impact on the transactional cache

2018-04-27 10:17:20 GMT <yreg> And it does not manifest during the operation (which might take multiple hours in my experience)

2018-04-27 10:17:35 GMT <AFaust> Eh... can be, may not be... always depends on which cache is exhausted, how big the shared cache is and what kind of other operations / requests are coming in

2018-04-27 10:18:46 GMT <AFaust> I have had customers run into DB overload situations because the shared cache was reset and suddenly all 100s of concurrent users were hitting the DB at once for large amounts of data (which had been strategically pre-cached)

2018-04-27 10:21:31 GMT <AFaust> But yes, if you have some horrendously written operation that executes for hours in a single transaction, and transactional cache is exhausted, it sure will be slow to a crawl as well

2018-04-27 10:43:19 GMT <angelborroy> weird

2018-04-27 10:43:32 GMT <angelborroy> it looks like 201804-EA is the same as 201803-EA

2018-04-27 10:43:47 GMT <angelborroy> no docker images upgrading when running

2018-04-27 10:46:08 GMT <angelborroy> yep, Docker file link in the post is wrong

2018-04-27 10:46:23 GMT <angelborroy> poor Alfresco guys! :-P

2018-04-27 11:23:40 GMT <yreg> fcorti, these links no longer work: https://community.alfresco.com/community/application-development-framework/pages/sample-code

2018-04-27 11:23:53 GMT <yreg> It's probably a good idea to update them

2018-04-27 11:25:31 GMT <fcorti> yreg thank you for the heads up... will do in one hour (not a big deal). Yes, we must update it.

2018-04-27 11:26:22 GMT <yreg> No hurries, I found what I was looking for, it was just a heads to save time for other people browsing there in the future

2018-04-27 12:22:52 GMT <fcorti> yreg: page https://community.alfresco.com/community/application-development-framework/pages/sample-code updated...

2018-04-27 12:23:33 GMT <yreg> (y)

2018-04-27 13:31:21 GMT <mmuller_> Lovely Friday

2018-04-27 13:46:14 GMT <fcorti> mmuller_ +1

2018-04-27 14:25:29 GMT <alfbot> mmuller__: Sent 18 hours and 5 minutes ago: <digcat> he he, the thought police might, but id be very surprised if any one on here, read your comments that way. oracles release strategy will be a pain, as they only release the latest, getting earlier versions is a pain. so likely you'll have to bundle java with your releases :(

2018-04-27 14:26:14 GMT <alfbot> AFaust: Woooosh, your log has been flushed...

2018-04-27 16:52:10 GMT <fwu> ppl, is there some postman examples of using rest api from activiti communiti?

2018-04-27 20:45:56 GMT <fwu> back

2018-04-27 22:21:34 GMT <Fiifi> Hi guys!

2018-04-27 22:22:12 GMT <Fiifi> I have been trying to improve my workflow skills lately

2018-04-27 22:23:46 GMT <Fiifi> Any good doc on multiple approval level workflow?
