    Q&A 7: Can we test a rule before it actually runs in LimagitoX File Mover

    Q: Is it possible to test a rule before it actually runs? To make sure filename, pattern match works and destination is accessible?
    A: Let us explain you how we mostly test a rule. We have two methods.

    First method:

    Disable the Scan Timers in the schedule setup:

    LimagitoX-Disable-Scan-Timers

    Set the ‘Max. Files processed in One Scan’ to 1 during tests:

    This way only a single file is processed when you start the rule manually.

     

    Second method:

    Setup Source and Scan Timers as you normally do and add the following Pascal Script as Destination:

    Begin
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psLogWrite(1, '', psFilePath + psFileName);
    End.

    LimagitoX-Add-Pascal-Script

    Be sure to set function to ‘Copy’ because we don’t want to delete any files from the Source:

    LimagitoX-Copy-Function

    Open Logging Setup of this moving rule:

    LimagitoX-Logging-Menu

    Enable history logging to save the received information from the Pascal Script in a log file. Let the rule run and check the content of this log file.

    LimagitoX-Logging-Setup

    Q&A 6: I want to use user accounts in LimagitoX File Mover

    Q: I’ve been using Limagito for several years and it works great. I just started experimenting with the web remove client, and I’m not seeing much in the way of security (user accounts) there. Is there any ways to set up an access list or usernames/passwords for people who can access the web remote client? It seems like anyone who has access to get to the URL on port 8077 can make changes. Please let me know what I’m missing.

    A: Yes this is possible. You’ll need to enable our User ‘Accounts’ option.

    LimagitoX.Menu.Accounts

    Some FAQ:
    – administrator user is always available (you can not delete this account)
    – When you change a setting of a user, don’t forget to click <Save User> (before switching to another user).
    – You can also use Domain User accounts. In this case no Password is required because the password is managed by the Domain.
    – Select the rules the user account is allowed to access, you need to select at least on rule.
    – Many options under Options 1 and 2 tab

    LimagitoX.Accounts.Setup

    If you need help, please let us know.

    How-To use AzCopy to download files in LimagitoX File Mover

    Regarding version 2020.5.2.0. On request we’ve added an option to use the Microsoft azCopy command-line utility within LimagitoX File Mover.

    Feedback from customer:

    We’ve very recently been pushed to implement as Azure-based file transfer workflow for our remote users thanks to the pandemic.  I’ve found that Limagito’s existing Azure file transfer performance seems to be on-par with the Microsoft Azure CLI tools (e.g. az storage blob <command>), but extremely slow compared to the multi-threaded Microsoft AzCopy utility.  On a 10gbps end-to-end link, the difference between Limagito/Azure CLI vs. AzCopy is on the order of 300mbps vs. 9gbps+.

    This utility is available: here

    There is a 32 and 64 bit version. Search for ‘download links here’. Download and unzip, you’ll need this later. The version we are using in this example is 10.4.3.

    In this example we’ll use Azure as Source. The goal is to download Block Blob Files. Normally you only need to enter the Account Name and Key but because we are going to use AzCopy you also need to enter the SAS URI.

    We’ll be searching for files in the container named ‘test’.

    The AzCopy option is available under the ‘Advanced’ tab.

    • Enable ‘Use AzCopy’
    • Set the directory where we can find the AzCopy commande-line utility (azcopy.exe)

    About the SAS URI. You can find this in your Azure Storage Accounts setup. Don’t forget to adjust the ‘Start and expiry date/time’.

    SAS-URI

    Click <Generate SAS> and search the result for SAS-token. This is the one we need for our Azure as Source setup. Copy the complete token and paste this in our ‘SAS Uri ( sv=.. )’ field.

    SAS-URI-Token

    Result in RunTime Log:

    By default, the AzCopy log files are located in the %USERPROFILE%\.azcopy directory on Windows.

    i.e. C:\Users\YourUsername\.azcopy

    AzCopy-Log

    At this moment this new option can help you to:

    • Download Block Bobs from Azure
    • Download Page Blobs from Azure
    • Upload Block Blobs to Azure
    • Upload Page Blobs to Azure (VHD and VHDX files only)

    If you need any help please let us know. This is just a start. We are convinced quite some extra features can be added to this new option. Please let us know what you think.
