Error description

  • If a FileInput node flow which is configured to pick up input
    files from a shared NFS folder is deployed to multiple
    integration servers then the flow causes creation of zero size
    input files intermittently. Then an empty message get
    propagated through the FileInput node's out terminal.

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    If a FileInput node flow is configured to pick up input files
    from a shared NFS folder and is deployed to multiple integration
    servers, then the flow can cause the intermittent creation of
    zero sizes input files. This causes an empty message to be
    propagated through the FileInput node's out terminal. This
    problem occurs only if NFS file attribute caching is enabled on
    the IIB server machine.
