  • Moving existing FSI Server installation to new hardware (v2)

    In some environments it is required to move FSI Server to a new hardware platform for different reasons. To prevent the entire source images being re-imported, which can take quite some time when large image pools are used, you can follow these steps to quickly switch up an existing FSI Server installation to a new […]

  • Retrieving image information from FSI Server

    To obtain the image width and height from FSI Server you need to request the “fsi/info.xml” template. The request has the following scheme: http://fsi.domain.com/fsi/server?src=[IMAGE]&type=info&tpl=info If you replace the [IMAGE] with an existing imagepath on FSI Server, e.g. “samples/Watch.jpg” you will receive the XML file with the image properties as follows:

    Depending on the image source, additional […]

  • Adding FSI Cache to the FSI Server webinterface

    Reason: You are using FSI Cache and prefer HTML Code snippets using FSI Cache over FSI Server Solution: Edit your webappsfsiWEB-INFconfigdefaultprefs.xml In the prefs node add the proxyURL, e.g. http://cache.domain.com/fsicache Replace the URL Above with your FSI Cache request root. When using FSI Server, FSI Viewer will assume the assume “server”, “viewer” and “js” as […]

    If you see a watermark “FSI Viewer evaluation copy” this means the FSI Viewer licence was not found, invalid, expired or the registered FQDN was wrong. If you see a watermark “EVALUATION COPY – FSI SERVER” this means the FSI Server licence was not found, invalid, expired or the registered FQDN was wrong. If you see a watermark “FSI CACHE – […]

  • Image import in FSI Server is very slow

    Reason: The server may not have enough memory or the operating system is swapping. Solution: The import performance depends not only on the servers CPU, but primarily on the server I/O subsystem. Thus we recommend to run FSI Server on a dedicated machine. If FSI Server tries to import images that can’t be handled in […]

  • Migrating FSI Server to new hardware, step-by-step guide

    Reason: In case you need to switch hardware and want to keep your settings. Solution: Install FSI Server on new Hardware. Copy WEB_INF/config folder to new machine Copy WEB_INF/importer_profiles folder to new machine Copy server_profiles and templates if changes were made to new machine Copy storage to new machine   If the Domain or IP […]

  • Increase the memory in FSI Server

    To modify the amount of RAM the FSI server can access, you need to edit the amount of RAM that Tomcat may access. Depending on your machine setup, you need to edit the tomcat configuration file and e.g. Change the -Xms192M parameter to -Xms1024M Change the -Xmx512M parameter to -Xmx1024M if your machine has 2GB […]
