Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

SFTP issue

I'm trying to transfer a 1 GB file using sftp process. The process always gets disconnected in between (may be after 20%) file transfer when it runs from a batch script. If i do it in interactive mode, it works.. I checked with account admin to see the timeout option if any, but didn't help.. looking for a help..

sftp on what platform?

What version of sftp?


sftp is based on ssh and uses a configuration file to set timeouts:

SSH_CONFIG(5)               BSD File Formats Manual              SSH_CONFIG(5)

     ssh_config -- OpenSSH SSH client configuration files

     ssh(1) obtains configuration data from the following sources in the following order:

           1.   command-line options
           2.   user's configuration file (~/.ssh/config)
           3.   system-wide configuration file (/etc/ssh/ssh_config)


     SSH_CONFIG(5)               BSD File Formats Manual              SSH_CONFIG(5)


             Specifies whether to use compression.  The argument must be yes or no (the default).

             Specifies the number of tries (one per second) to make before exiting.  The argument must be an
             integer.  This may be useful in scripts if the connection sometimes fails.  The default is 1.

             Specifies the timeout (in seconds) used when connecting to the SSH server, instead of using the
             default system TCP timeout.  This value is used only when the target is down or really unreach-
             able, not when it refuses the connection.
