Simplified Cache and Improved Error Messaging

This month we’ve simplified cache for general performance improvements and updated error messaging to provide more detail. And, if you’ve ever wanted to map your ExaVault FTP space on your desktop, you’ll want to try WebDrive. We’ve put together a tutorial and documentation to help you get started. Get all the details below. 

Simplified Cache = Performance Improvements

We’ve simplified and restructured our cache to provide big performance improvements across our API and web application. In our testing, we saw application performance 10% faster than our previous benchmarks.

Detailed Error Messages. Better for Developers.

Errors are never fun, though many of you rely on error messages to help understand what’s going on with your transfers. Our improved messaging provides more detailed responses – which you may see if you’re in our web application or as a developer in our API. While we certainly hope you don’t encounter any errors, the new error messaging should help you speed up any troubleshooting.

Sample error messages

Fails Now Show Up in CSV Logs

Previously the “failed” status was not included on file operations when you exported your activity logs to CSV. Now, fails show in the status column in the CSV logs. This update enhances your ability to rely on CSV logs for internal tracking and reporting to keep compliant.

For example, the activity log online might show three failed downloads but the export only showed three downloads. 

Locate the transfer_status column in your CSV file.

Then, check for any rows with a “failed” status.
