I am working with a standalone Confluence installations (3.5.6) and I'd like to export spaces from the commandline (Confluence CLI seems to be the answer).
When I try to export a reasonably large wiki space using Confluence CLI (which uses SOAP Remote API), I get:
Remote error: ; nested exception is:
Java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out
It times out in 10mins. Exactly.
Export space does work from within Confluence, and takes about 22 minutes. I've tested the export with a smaller space, and it works just fine through the CLI.
What is the right way to enable an end user to change the default timeout for all TCP connections or those initiated in a JVM so that these longer running tasks can finish and return? And, more importantly, is this the way to do it?
Has anyone had success exporting large spaces via command line?
I don't quite know how to get around this issue with the CLI tool for Confluence, but I was able to overcome this issue with a Python script that might be useful:
#!/usr/bin/python import sys, string, xmlrpclib, re, httplib, time #http timeout override class TimeoutHTTPConnection( httplib.HTTPConnection ): def connect( self ): httplib.HTTPConnection.connect( self ) self.sock.settimeout( self.timeout ) class TimeoutHTTP( httplib.HTTP ): _connection_class = TimeoutHTTPConnection def set_timeout( self, timeout ): self._conn.timeout = timeout class TimeoutTransport( xmlrpclib.Transport ): def __init__( self, timeout = 10, *l, **kw ): xmlrpclib.Transport.__init__( self, *l, **kw ) self.timeout = timeout def make_connection( self, host ): conn = TimeoutHTTP( host ) conn.set_timeout( self.timeout ) return conn class TimeoutServerProxy( xmlrpclib.ServerProxy ): def __init__( self, uri, timeout = 10, *l, **kw ): kw['transport'] = TimeoutTransport( timeout = timeout, use_datetime = kw.get( 'use_datetime', 0 ) ) xmlrpclib.ServerProxy.__init__( self, uri, *l, **kw ) def runExport(newtimeout): #server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('http://localhost:8080/rpc/xmlrpc') try: print ("Starting at: "+time.asctime()) server = TimeoutServerProxy( 'http://localhost:8080/rpc/xmlrpc', timeout = newtimeout ) token = server.confluence1.login( 'admin', 'admin' ) key = raw_input( "Enter space key: " ) vartype = raw_input( "Eport type (xml or html): " ) if "xml" in vartype.lower(): type = 'TYPE_XML' else: if "html" in vartype.lower(): type = 'TYPE_HTML' else: print ("Invalid output type.") string = server.confluence1.exportSpace( token, key, type ) exit( string ) except Exception as e: print (time.asctime()) print (e) finally: print (time.asctime()) toset = int(raw_input( "Set Timeout Value in Minutes: " ))*60 runExport(toset)
You will need to change the details in 'server' and 'token' to match your server URL and login details. When you run the script, set a timeout value in minutes and specify the space key and xml and it should eventually spit out a URL. In local testing, a space with 35000 unique pages, each with one image attached, finished in 16 minutes. Mileage will vary, but you can get a feel for how long you can expect it to take by running a space export in the Confluence UI to establish your baseline.
I was just about to link you to https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/CSOAP-74 but I see that you have already commented on that, and it lead you here. :-)
You say you have tried setting CONNECTION_TIMEOUT to 1000 and it times out at around 10 minutes. If your export directly from Confluence takes around 22 minutes, you will probably need to change the timeout value to something even larger.
Try setting CONNECTION_TIMEOUT and SO_TIMEOUT to 1800000, which should give Confluence a 30 minute window to complete the export.
The peculiar thing seems to be that no matter what I specify on the command line for the CONNECTION_TIMEOUT and SO_TIMEOUT, it still bombs out in 10mins. So, somewhere the 10min timeout for something is taking precedence....I'm hoping someone who understands the SOAP API/Java interaction better or who better know how the long running tasks in confluence work can shed some light on this.
From the description in CSOAP-74, this problem has been around a while....
Adam - What version of Python are you using? I installed 2.7 (on solaris) and it gave me this error - Set Timeout Value in Minutes: 40

TimeoutHTTP instance has no attribute 'getresponse'

To get this to work for me, I commented out:
server = TimeoutServerProxy( 'http://localhost:8080/rpc/xmlrpc', timeout = newtimeout )
#server = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('http://localhost:8080/rpc/xmlrpc')
Because my Space was quite large (3gigs) I also had to increase the amount of memory available. In my setenv.bat file I updated the JAVA_OPTS to be:
set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Xms2056m -Xmx3072m -XX:MaxPermSize=3072m
