Managed File Transfer Administration Overview
As the IM and Presence Service administrator , you are responsible for managing file storage and disk usage for the Managed File Transfer feature. Use this chapter to monitor the levels of file storage and disk usage and to set counters and alerts to let you know when the levels exceed your defined thresholds.
Managing External File Server and Database Server
When managing external database size, you can combine queries with shell scripting so that files get purged from the database automatically, according to your specifications. To create your queries use file transfer metadata. This includes transfer type, file type, timestamp, absolute path on the file server to the file, and other information.
When choosing how to handle file transfers within IM and group chat, consider that one-to-one IM and group chat are probably transient so transferred files may be deleted promptly. However, keep in mind that:
IMs delivered to offline users may trigger a delayed request for a file.
Persistent chat transfers may need to be longer lived.
