EFT v7.2 Advanced Properties (registry)

Karla Marsh
EFT

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v7.2 and later
  • When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to v8.x, the registry settings in the previous version that are not using the default settings are copied to AdvancedProperties.json file in EFT's \ProgramData\ directory and then deleted from the registry.

EFT v8.0 and later store Advanced Properties in a JSON file. When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings become part of the EFT configuration files.) For a more on how to use advanced properties, and a spreadsheet of the advanced properties, please refer to the "Advanced Properties" topic in the help for your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

The following advanced properties were added for EFT v7.2. It is recommended that you use these advanced properties only after discussions with Globalscape Technical Support or your account manager. Misuse of these registry changes can cause undesirable results.

In EFT v8 and later:

Add the name:value pair to the AdvancedProperties.JSON file in EFT's \ProgramData\ directory as described in the "Advanced Properties" topic in the online help for your version of EFT. (Integer values do not use quotation marks; non-integer values use quotation marks.)

CompressActionProcessorAffinityMask
Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: STRING
Default Value: none
Max Length: 4096
Cached: yes
Backup/Restore: no
Description: Sets the processor affinity mask for de/compression threads. Used to isolate de/compress threads to a subset of available processors in cases where CPU bandwidth is limited. An example value is 0x55555555 -- an alternating sequence of 0 and 1 bits to limit de/compress activity to half of the available processors, leaving the remaining processors to handle other activities. Caution: in some cases, de/compression COM errors have been observed when setting this AdvancedProperty.

CompressActionThrottle
Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: STRING
Default Value: none
Max Length: 4096
Cached: yes
Backup/Restore: no
Description: Compress Action Throttle: when this key is of the form X:Y, a compress action will sleep X milliseconds of every Y milliseconds elapsed. This throttle is used to avoid excessive CPU utilization on machines with limited CPU bandwidth. Does not apply to ZCompress compression or to decompression actions. Example value is 200:400 to sleep 200 milliseconds of every 400 milliseconds elapsed.

Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: DWORD
Default Value: 0
Minimum Value: 0
Maximum Value: 4294967295
Cached: no
Backup/Restore: no
Description: This key value sets the timeout in seconds for the de/compression action. The default is 0, meaning that the timeout is disabled.

DecompressActionBeginFileTimeout
Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: DWORD
Default Value: 0
Minimum Value: 0
Maximum Value: 4294967295
Cached: no
Backup/Restore: no
Description: This key value sets the timeout in milliseconds for the first BeginFile callback during decompression. Default is 0, meaning the timeout is disabled.

Type: DWORD
Default Value: 0
Minimum Value: 0
Maximum Value: 4294967295
Cached: no
Backup/Restore: no
Description: This key value sets the timeout in milliseconds for a decompression action scan operation. Scan is used primarily when autodetecting the archive format. Default is 0, meaning the timeout is disabled

EnableClientLogging
Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: DWORD
Default Value: true
Cached: yes
Backup/Restore: yes
Description: Enable or disable client logs. Non-zero means enabled. By default logs are enabled.

Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.1
Type: DWORD
Default value: 0
Possible values: 1 or 0
Cached: yes
Backup/restore: yes
Description: If this value is set to 1, virtual folders are not evaluated when calculating a user's quota restriction.

ExecuteTransferActionsInParallel
Registry Path: SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.2
Type: DWORD
Default Value: false
Cached: yes
Backup/Restore: no
Description: Specifies whether to run a group (grouped by IF Statement) of Transfer Actions in parallel. Set to 1 to enable. Default is 0
