File size limit?

Does astiga have a limit on file sizes it can handle? I have (at least one) high resolution audio file greater than 1GB that always produces an error message on the log. It's not a big problem, but just wondered if it could be got round,



  • What is the file format and extension?

    Sorry for the slow reply. If you tell me which file this is I can try to replicate to double check the cause.

  • flac

  • /Music/High Definition Tape Transfers/HDTT9275/01 Elgar- Symphony no. 1 in A-Flat Major, op. 55.flac

    It's actually over 2GB I've discovered...

    There's possibly some sort of timeout going on, but I'll double check later.

    Found the problem. It's not a timeout, but it is related to the filesize.

    Astiga has a database field that stores the current filesize. Currently, the field is constrained in the value it can store, and any file larger than 2147483647 bytes cannot be stored. Your file is 2346045773 bytes (as far as I can see).

    So we need to do some work to change this... for now, you can't store that file, unfortunately.
