Sometimes uploading from an edge filer to a portal can stall. A mechanism monitors the upload queue and the administrator is notified when there is an uploading issue.

When an edge filer stops uploading files to the portal, the status is changed to stalled and a notification is written to the end user interface, Sync upload is stalled, both in the notifications for the device and in the general notifications for the portal. An email is also sent to the user.

The status enters a stalled status when nothing is uploaded for 12 hours, even though there are files in the upload queue. The default of 12 hours can be changed. For details about changing this default, contact CTERA support.

Note

The CTERA Edge Filer version must be 7.0.1399.9 or higher.
