#197 closed defect (fixed)

WMS scripts doesn't pass proper options to fillpyramid

Reported by: dmisev Owned by: pcampalani
Priority: major Milestone: 8.4
Component: petascope Version: 8.3
Keywords: Cc:


The script should be updated to pass --tasplit, --tiledupdate, --align and possibly others to the fillpyramid binary. Otherwise WMS fill fails for large images.

You are right: according to the backported, with RGB and Grey images these arguments are used:

  --align 512  //default
  -t           //transparency
  --tasplit    //split transaction into small units (saves main mem)


  • the transparency can be disabled calling the import script with --notrans arg;
  • --tasplit is not mandatory and is enabled by calling the script itself with the same argument.;

Should I reflect this behavior in or should I, for instance, force splitting?

(a note from "BUGS: --align without --tiledupdate goes wild."

After internal discussion, it was concluded to enable --tasplit option for publication of big files.
