How To Improve The Performance Of PROPFIND Method On Oracle iPlanet Web Server When Using WebDAV Services? (Doc ID 1569362.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0 the PROPFIND method is called multiple times on a frequent basis by writing a large number of files to a folder within the DAV.

When executing the WebDAV functions of iPlanet the PROPFIND call is being invoked before each PUT when a file is written to the DAV. This causes a bottleneck when trying to write out large numbers of files and extends the processing time considerably. Is it possible to control the PROPFIND calls within the DAV so that the number of calls made during a time frame or number of file writes may be reduced.
