Hi list

I've had a good Google but not found anything definitive, so I'll ask for some general comments here. :-)

SS has long had an issue with Files & Images when there are a large number of files. Any server has a finite amount of resources, but users can add an unlimited number of files; so given enough files to process, regardless of how much RAM and execution time you throw at the problem, operations on folders can die midway, leaving the File table out of sync.

Are there any plans to move operations like these to offline processes?

Any advice or info appreciated!

This is about to cost us a major customer, can anybody at SilverStripe comment on whether or not any changes to the way Files are processed are planned?

If you didn't get a response and this is so urgent I'd raise it as a critical issue ont he open.silverstripe.org and hang out in NZ time on IRC to catch a silverstripe person to address this.

I had a look through the road map and can't see anything like this planned, couple performance related tickets (e.g http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/6534)

Thanks Willr, I'll have to have a squiz through the ORM stuff for 3.0 and see if there's anything in there for really large dataobjectsets. :)
