Solved "Failed to create deployment tasking..."
If added two new capabilities to the general settings of the fog configuration. FOG_FTP_TIMEOUT and FOG_FTP_PORT. The default timeout is now set to 90 but should reflect whatever is put in this field though I still need to add some error checking.
Thanks Tom! That’s great! Although I think we have a real issue with our virtualization software (proxmox). Still trying to find out why deleting big files takes MINUTES… definitely shouldn’t be the case!!
Learned something new … (pretty much every day!)
ext3 does some kind of defragmentation/reallocation foooo when files are being deleted!
[QUOTE]ext3, when freeing disk space is doing some kind of defragmentation, which moves some data around to maximize continuous free disk space.
So, when we had 3 large files (blocks A, B and C), and some free space (.):
and I removed whole A:
ext3 relocated some blocks (most likely from C):
I (re)moved all my images, re-formated with ext4, put it all back together and now everything seems fine. Deleting of 150GB image takes less than 10 seconds. Awesome!!! I really wonder why very little people have issues with this. Is ext3 not in use in most recent distributions??
[B]Could anyone please add [SOLVED] to the title, thanks![/B]
So the moral of the story is to use ext4 ?

Well, there are a lot of other nice filesystems out there too! ext4 is working for us right now and I am sure it will for others having an issue with deleting hugh files on ext3. But I am not saying that ext4 is the only fs that can do this…
