Copying file from network share


(Uria Ashkenazy Adler) #1

I’m trying to copy a 1MB text file from a network share. Sometimes it takes 1 second, sometimes 20 and sometimes up to 40 seconds. If I copy the same file with Windows Explorer / Ant / batch file it works fine.

This is the code:

def source = '//myHost/test/'
def dest = 'c:/test/'
  task copyTask() << {
 copy {
  from source
  into dest
 }
}

In general, it’s more appropriate to use a ‘Copy’ task, but I doubt it will have a positive effect on performance. Have you tried this often enough to be absolutely sure that the performance problem is related to Gradle? I’d be surprised if it was. Of course, Windows Explorer and batch files may have an advantage because they can use the Windows APIs directly, instead of going through the Java APIs. Do you see anything interesting in the Gradle ‘–info’ or ‘–debug’ logs?

Below are 3 runs with --info We can see that they took 18 seconds, then 2 seconds, then 20 seconds. The file size is a little less than 5MB

Code:

def source = '//uriaa01v/Public/test/'
def dest = 'c:/test/'
  task remoteCopy(type: Copy) {
    delete dest
    from source
    into dest
 }

Output:

Also, I tried it many times using Gradle and windows explorer. In windows explorer it consistently takes less than 3 seconds for that 5MB file In gradle, it is consistently inconsistent and can take 2 or 10 or 20 seconds

The real life task I need to accomplish is deploying tools and a large SDK to local development machines. The total size of these resources is more than 1.5GB so I must be able to copy these files as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately I can no longer reply to this topic because the forums can’t handle long posts (please use an external service like Gist when posting logs). Could you open another topic?
