Re: Multiple concurrent SFTP file downloads
Claus, is the ticket you're referring to CAMEL-6058: camel-ftp - Allow
concurrent download of files? The verbiage in that ticket appears to
refer only to the FTP consumer, whereas my use case requires the SFTP
Additionally, I've learned more about the network I'm working with and
found that download speeds are throttled per connection, not per
download request. My current line of thought is that an SFTP consumer
connection pool may be the solution I'm looking for. Though perhaps a
connection pool would be implicit in any realization of concurrent
downloads, as the JIRA ticket description suggests for the FTP
Is CAMEL-6058 still the appropriate JIRA ticket for my use case
requiring the SFTP consumer?
