IFilterConverter processing stage timing out after 5 minutes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting these messages in my doclog's, showing the IFilterConverter stage timing out after 5 minutes while working on what it thinks is an rtf file.  Is this stage a new file format converter?  I mean, seems to be a change from ESP.  Anyway, is this a problem anyone else has seen?


         INFO Processor FastFormatDetector: 
          INFO Detected extension '.rtf' does not match uri extension '.aspx' 
          INFO Processor IFilterConverter: 
          INFO Running conversion in a child process 
          WARNING Document conversion failed: External process timeout reached (300 seco 
        nds) (warning code 0) 
          INFO Processor "IFilterConverter" ran for 300s

  • Not a direct answer to your question, but maybe a better solution.

    Unless you have a good reason to use ifilter I would suggest turning on Advanced Filter Pack in FS4SP. Much more stable and consistent compared to ifilter in my opinion. I've worked with ifilter for many years and more often than not it's a hassle. It's also an old technology I would like to see upgraded.
