    Q&A: Need more Details on LimagitoX File Mover Application

    Q: Need more Details on Limagito Application.  We were evaluating the Limagito File Mover application and are very much interested to implement it in our IT system. We need your help to get below info so that i can discuss with our Management on Limagito implementation.

    1) Do you have the minimum system requirement/Benchmark for Limagito application? We have 1000s of files that moved on daily basis in our IT system.

    This depends on the amount of rules and options you are using. When you only have a couple of rules then our requirements won’t be much. Sometimes users start with a couple of rules but end with a couple of hundred so our advice is to use a server with at least 8GByte RAM. We prefer a bit more because the OS itself often takes quite a bit. Sometimes some extra services are running.  Our File Mover uses threads heavily so 4 cpu cores is an absolute minimum. Our advice is to increase these to at least 8 cores. FYI, when you have 200 rules who are triggered regularly (which is not abnormal, we have users running +/- 400 rules) then this means that you are running 200 small applications. So you need quite some power (core, memory and disk speed).

    For a disk speed test we use the following tool (use at your own risk): disk-benchmark

    Result on a ‘simple’ dual core virtual machine running Windows 10 Professional so you can compare if needed.

    Disk Speed measurement

    2) How many interfaces/rules can be created in Limagito? is there any limitation? How many threads/Rules can be executed in parallel/Simultanious?

    Our advice is to use a maximum of 400 rules per instance of our File Mover. If you need more, please install a second instance of our file mover.

    3) What is the license cost of Limagito application?

    License Link

    4) What is the support cost & SLAs of Limagito application?

    July 2020, support is included in the Licence (1 year for Single+ and Site+, 3 years for Corporate+ License type)

    5) Do you have any sort of documentation that we can refer to?


    We also can give a demo (remote) of our file mover where we show you the basic setup (+/- 1 hour).

    6) We downloaded the evaluation copy and we could not test it more by creating multiple rules. Can you provide us temporary license for limited period so that we can try creating more rules and test it?

    No trial license available due to bad experiences in the past. You can start with a Single License and upgrade later to another type of License (only the difference needs to be paid).

    7) Do you have your prime customer list who implemented the Limagito application? and the total cutomers who implemented that?

    We will never share any information about our customers.

    8) What known problems Limagito application has?

    Like every software, also we write bugs. The history of the different version are available here: https://limagito.com/file-mover-downloads/

    If you need more details, please let us know.

    Q&A 20: I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls

    Q: It seems XLS as destination is meant to convert Xls as source file. I’d love the option to go the other way, csv to xls. Oh well, feature request.
    A: You are correct the original idea was to convert XLS files but on your request we added this feature request in version v2020.7.12.0

    We added some screenhosts to give you  an idea about the setup. The Source is a Windows folder:

    LimagitoX File Mover Windows Source Folder

    We added a file filter to only include *.txt and *.cvs files:

    LimagitoX File Mover File Filter

    As Destination we added our ‘Add XLS’ option:

    LimagitoX File Mover XLS as destination

    The Csv file that we are going to convert has a comma as delimiter. Our goal is to convert the Csv source file to a Xls file. We enabled ‘Change Extension’ and added .xls as ‘Extension’. File Format was set to ‘Xls, Excel 97-2000-XP-2003’.

    Q&A 19: Backup 2 Files but Only Copy 1 to Destination

    Q: Backup 2 Files but Only Copy 1 to Destination.

    I need to set up a job that

    1. moves 2 files of different extensions off of a source
    2. Backup both files
    3. Only send 1 file to the destination.

    The 2 files from the source will be like ‘Filename.rec’ and ‘Filename.snd’. I want both backed up, but only want ‘Filename.snd’ to be sent to the destination. Is that possible?

    A: Yes that is possible using some Pascal Script.

    First you need to add a filename include filter to only filter the files you want (*.snd and *.rec files):

    LimagitoX File Mover Include Filename Filter

    Add two destinations. Really important:

    1. First destination (ID1) must be your Backup destination
    2. Second destination (ID2) must the output destination.

    LimagitoX File Mover Destinations

    Add the following ‘On Destinations‘ Pascal Script:
    LimagitoX File Mover Pascal Script Menu Item
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If SameText(psDestinationID, 'ID2') then
        If Not SameText(ExtractFileExt(psFilename), '.snd') then
          psExitCode := -1;
