Poor performance of Filr Synchronization

Novell Filr 1.0.0


No errors are observed, but the indexing and synchronization of users home directories takes an tremendous ammount of time.

For instance:
A users homedirectory, hosted on a Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 Suport Pack 1, on a NSS volume, with DST enabled, connected over NCP.
This home directory contains about 275 subdirectories and 2674 files.

The syncronization of this home directory by Novell Filer takes almost 160 minutes.


This has been addressed in Filr 1.0.0 FTF1 and later code.
