Track file transfer activity

Use the File Tracking page to view information about both client-initiated and server-initiated file transfers and to cancel or resubmit transfers. The File Tracking page is available only on SecureTransport Server. The log SecureTransport displays on the File Tracking page is the transfer log.

By default, SecureTransport stores the transfer log entries in the SecureTransport database. If you have the Enterprise Cluster (EC) option, you can store the transfer log data in a separate Oracle database away from the rest of the SecureTransport data. See Direct log data to separate Oracle databases.

To control which transfers are logged, see Configure transfer log.

For each transfer listed, the File Tracking page displays resubmit status, transfer status, account name, login name, direction of transfer, whether action was taken by the user or server, file name, number of bytes transferred, transfer protocol, start time, and duration.

The Resubmit button will be displayed in the Resubmit Status column except in the following cases:

  • AdHoc mail transfer
  • AdHoc attachment transfer
  • CIT download
  • Failed CIT upload
  • In-progress transfer
  • Re-trying transfer
  • PeSIT transfer in Paused state
  • Publish To Account Advanced Routing step transfer
  • Deleted file transfer log

In the listed cases, no Resubmit button is displayed. However, resubmit is not guaranteed to succeed. It is coupled with the archiving of the transfers.

Note Due protocol specific operations, when a user pauses or resumes a client initialed transfer (CIT) two entries are observed on the File Tracking page for the interrupted transfer. The entries have the following characteristics:

HTTP CIT: The File Tracking page entry for the portion of the file uploaded before the transfer is paused is marked as failed and a Resubmit button is not displayed. The second entry for the portion of the file uploaded after the transfer is resumed is marked as successful and a Resubmit button is displayed.

FTP/SSH CIT: The File Tracking page entry for the portion of the file uploaded before the transfer is paused is marked as successful and a Resubmit button is displayed. The second entry for the portion of the file uploaded after the transfer is resumed is marked as successful and a Resubmit button is displayed.

Note For PeSIT transfers initiated by a partner, the LOGIN column is the name of the PeSIT transfer site that represents the partner. For all PeSIT transfers, the FILE column is the name of the transfer profile used. For the location and name of the file transferred, click the icon in the status column and refer to the detailed status.
Note When an Oracle RAC database node fails, the transfers being processed by a SecureTransport server connected to the failed Oracle RAC database node, will remain in process indefinitely.
