FTPLIB - retry files?

Is there any way to retry sending files with some delay up to a set number on
failure? Sometimes we encounter a locked file on our server or the destination
server and we want to retry that file in X seconds.

Not exactly sure how to go about that right now short of moving the files
elsewhere and then queuing them up again.

Anyone done this? I'm still kind of new to this so am open to suggestions on
how this might be possible as well.

Thanks for your help.

In general, what's wrong with this:

import time

retryCount = 10
retrySleep = 5
for x in range(retryCoun t):
try:
[ftp commands]
except [ftp exceptions]:
time.sleep(retr ySleep)
else:
break

// m

That will probably work. I'll have to do some playing around with it. I'm
still new to all of this but am finding that it can handle a lot of the
functionality I'm looking for: Logging, retries, archiving, etc.

I will try to integrate this and see what happens.

Thanks.

Hi: I want to write a procedure to automatically upload some files for me, but I'm getting stuck. Before I write my own gruesome put() function, I wanted to check if there is an easier way. Here's what I can do so far: >>>import ftplib >>>conn = ftplib.FTP('ftp.example.com') >>>conn.login(user='userid', passwd='passwd')

I download a lot of 4-6 KB files and regularly run into issues with files that don't get downloaded all the way or otherwise get corrupt. I do something like: RemoteList = nlstdir() for filename in RemoteList: LocalFile = open(filename, "wb") LocalFile.write( "get file code here" ) LocalFile.close()

Trying to use ftplib.FTP.nlst() method to list the files in a directory on a FTP server. It works fine except when there are no files in the directory. Then it gives the error ftplib.error_perm: 550 No files found. How can I handle this cleanly?
